... I hear you... we recently had to get an insurance survey. Disappointing.

This (old) poll needs three categories.. What you think it's worth, what it's really worth, and what it would actually sell for.... Oh- and one more.... What you've put into it!

This comparison would only be relevant in the US, plus I suspect only certain sections of the US. Worldwide boat prices vary considerably. In Oz you would be lucky to to get Catalina 30+ for less than $100,000.

The one bight spot in America's economy is that sailors who are not American can buy an American boat at what will appear to be a huge discount compared to what the equivalent boat would cost in his/her home country. Here in Florida I see foreign buyers taking advantage of this all the time.

Of course there is the small matter of bringing the new boat 'home' to consider.

Siamese has touched upon one of the biggest variables when it comes to boat value -- how desperate is the seller? If I HAD to sell my boat within a month or two, it would be "worth" a fraction (1/2?, 1/3?) of what it would take to get be to part with her were a buyer to approach me before I had any desire to sell. Most sellers are between those two extremes -- the boat is on the market, but the seller is willing to wait several months to get a decent price. Likewise, the "worth" of such a sellers boat is somewhere between the "fire sale" price and the "how much will it take to get you to sell?" price.

Never forget them. Do something to prevent it from happening again.

The poll is anonymous, so you really are not giving out any info other then what is the majority on the water.

All boats have issues... it's a boat

I doubt there would be so many less then 10K boats sitting in marinas if they were un-insureable or un-sailable. The last thing a Marina wants on their lot is a boat that nobody is going to pay the storage fees on.

For me the true value of a boat is what you could get somebody to pay you for it.... today. You can dump thousand into a boat without ever increasing it's value. I have seen a few boats out on moorings this year that are free, come sail them away... I would call that a sailboat that isn't worth the 500.00 it would cost to haul it out for a survey. Is that a fair assumption?
