Re: Is the sailboat market really this bad?
While I have never registered until now, I am a frequent visitor, and appreciate the knowledge that many of you have.
I found this post while doing a google search on the sailboat market, and thought it might be worthwhile bumping it to the top to see how things look a couple of years down the road.
My impression is that things have not improved and maybe have gotten worse. Plastic classics that were bringing $12-15,000 a few years ago are going for $5,000-$6,000 or less.
Many wooden boats cannot be given away.
Trailer sailors seem to be moving, but not all that briskly.
So, do any of you agree? And, will there be a recovery, or has the Golden Age of Everyman yachting passed us by?
(Sorry if this topic has already been recently revisited. I did a few searches, but nothing came up.)
