Having recently decided to upsize the boat, I have browsed hundreds of pages of boats for sale and contacted a few sellers but everyone so far seems to be in the same boat (pun of course intended). Asking prices have dropped and most people like myself need to sell their old boat first before buying a new one. I have only very recently put mine on the market but I have contacted people who have been up for sale now for well over a year with practically no interest. Their boats look sound enough and not over-priced. I know sailing is classed as a luxury and therefore meant to be one of the first markets to be hit in a so-called recession, but is it really this bad ?
