And "homebuilt" or home finished boats are notoriously hard to sell, so you may have a problem motivating a broker. You might want to contact the marina staff and see if they have any referrals for you.

I sell cars for friends through craigslist periodically and ask them what they expect for the car - anything over that I take as my commission for selling the vehicle.

How does it work with boat brokers? Do they get a percentage or a set amount? Can you suggest anyone to deal with in Oregon?

Is there a fair way to even do an appraisal? I take it this kickitat is not a large company or even in existence any longer?

I havent really seen an evaluation website similar to nada or KBB for boats that even list this klickitat or island brand - How would it be described? I think of it as like a chevy silverado ls 4x4

you know what I mean?

Yea. he needs to get off his duff but it's hard when he's working 60 hours a week. Ugh. Thanks for the help ya'll

we're not looking to make money off of the boat - just get a fair price and give someone a good value for a nice way to sail.
... so maybe a tax receipt for a donation would be an acceptable possibility?

The boat looks in decent shape, but it's definitely something other than the regular fare in the used boat market.

I don't think donating anything will really help us when it comes to taxes. Uncle Sam always gets his cut.

Forgot details - mahogany and teak custom built interior by a retired coast guard. Has never sat in water and is currently being stored under tarp in a large garage.

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat
