Re: What Is A Boat Really Worth?

Professional brokers generally treat 50K offers the same as 50M offers. i.e. in writing with contingencies spelled out. Sure it is occasionally more relaxed depending on circumstances but overall it...

Re: What Is A Boat Really Worth?

Nuances.

Big huge expensive boats are more formal than less expensive boats.

In Julie's price range, a verbal offer that clarified whether there was a finance contingency and a promise to...

Re: What Is A Boat Really Worth?

No. The Yacht Purchase and Sales Agreement is the document that you sign when you make your offer. Along with your offered price it spells out the contingencies and timeline associated with your...

Re: What Is A Boat Really Worth?

Julie, please do not let the ones who seem to think you need to rush to spend thousands of dollars of YOUR money to purchase a boat before you know enough about it to make a good decision influence...

Re: What Is A Boat Really Worth?

I think some of the advice to "just make an offer" was made before it was known that you have only seen four boats. It would not be unusual for someone to look at 40 or 50 boats before making an...

Re: What Is A Boat Really Worth?

10% deposit has been industry standard for many years, usually accompanied by your first offer to purchase. Most but not all brokers did not deposit your check until and if there was an accepted...

Re: What Is A Boat Really Worth?

The 10% deposit seems to have been cleared up, but I missed it. Just in case....... You don't send 10% with our first offer. You send it with the contract as soon as your offer is accepted,...

Re: Name on Bow = Charter Boat?

As I understand it, CG documented boats chartered “bare boat’ and meeting the applicable regulations for that status, are not marked as commercial vessels. This would include USVI bare boat charter...

Re: Sea Trial Only After Sales Contract?

Julie,

I didn't mean to imply the owners will traditionally be available to you. Most buyers do not want them around when initially viewing the boat. Brokers often want them to scoot as well,...

Re: Boat Buying By The Numbers

Also check to make sure your sail areas are measured the same. Sometimes on cutters or ketches they don't list the stay sail or mizzen area. A place to check sail area is Sailrite web site they have...

Re: The Search Widens Before it Narrows

Here's a strategy that could help widen the search, without undue traveling. If you can narrow your choice down to a brand, maybe a model or two or a range within that brand, then go see the closest...

Re: The Search Widens Before it Narrows

Sounds like you are nailing down some criteria that are important. Now go filter out the boats that have what you are realizing you like. Good luck.

Re: Sandal-type Boat Shoes

I'm curious about this as well. I have a Rhodes 19, so I get pretty wet sometimes, and always when I launch her.

I saw some Keen...

Re: So Much Lookin' I Got Sunburned!

Yay! Congratulations! So, what did you see? What did you learn? My first time around, I was aboard easily 10-15 boats. I learned, for example, that my definitions of "well maintained" and...

Good. I predict a few more sun sessions followed by years of sun.

Re: So Much Lookin' I Got Sunburned!

Good going.
doing a lot of looking gives you a better idea of what is out there and available.
You'll bring along sunblock when you finally sail the boat you do get.
I predict more sunny skies in...

Re: Anyone Know the Bianca 36?

It is a boat quite similar to Northstar 1500/35, Hughes 35, and a couple of other S&S boats which were based on the same design.

Re: Anyone Know the Bianca 36?

The Bianca 36 is based on the Sagitta 35 which was originally built by Cadovius boatyard in Svendborg, DK. When that yard went broke Bianca Yachts built the Bianca 36 based on it. Very nice boats for...

Re: Initial Offer Question

Hi Julie, I own an '85 Sabre 34, and while I think my boat is worth every bit of $60,000.
;-) I'd never get it. Nor would I expect to get $50,000. If I could. I'd probably sell it today and...

Re: Initial Offer Question

Interesting responses. All are good and I'll only add one thing that I haven't yet read. Buying or selling an item is not a contest of wills. A successful negotiation is a meeting of goals or...

Re: Initial Offer Question

While I agree with some of what you say, it must be noted that if you are financing a boat the lender will start here for a value. Survey may get you to another number, but the key word is "might"....
