Some boats sell for much more. Some boats sell for much less. Don't give too much credit to the survey value. It doesn't really mean anything. It is one persons wild guess what the boat might be worth. It is rarely derived from any really in-depth investigation of the market for that particular type of boat, in that particular condition, for sale in that particular location.
Come to your own conclusion what you are willing to pay for the boat, and stick to that no matter what the survey might say the value is.
