Sailboat Listings - sailboats for sale

I thought that most boat owners selling in yachtworld.com were pretty unrealistic as to what they could sell a boat for until I did a search in the site above. Simply ridiculous LOL..........

Re: SailBoats for Sale buy OWNER........

I have been following some of the same boats listed with brokers for over a year. Bad times for guys selling boats that want 5 year ago prices for them. That bubble has burst. I took a 38k hit on my 80k long travel buggy I just sold. I have Monaco Dynasty DP that was over 200k when new in 93. I did not pay that by the way or even close to it. I cant even get an offer for over 22k. I have hard earned cash for a boat and I will just keep waiting tell these guys get real with the times that are not going to change anytime soon. Also I could get about 850k for my home 5 years ago. Now, maybe 625k.

A sailboat, vehicle or house is worth only what someone else is willing to pay. A seller can ask whatever they want, but that ask doesn't write a check (nor does NADA or any other price guide book you want to choose).

Location, condition and model is important.

Why are people happy to accept science which makes their life easier while rejecting science that makes their faith or beliefs more difficult?

Couldn't agree with you more. It is a hard lesson to learn and even harder to go through it. I learned that lesson the hard way when I was trying to sell a home right as the market crashed. Sat on it for 2 years with it empty making payments, insurance, maintenance, taxes, and costs living elsewhere "waiting for the right buyer to drop from the sky". Finally, had to bite the bullet and sell it for what someone was willing to pay regardless of what it was worth 2 months before I put it for sale or when I bought it. I guess I could have been very dishonest about it like many and simply stop making payments and let it foreclose!!

Now if we can figure out how to tell 'expert' sailors something, wouldn't THAT be an acheivement
