Re: Financing question. Is this true???

I'm half-way surprised banks make loans on depreciating toys. Count your blessings.

When you are looking a soldboat.com data it is important to specify gas or diesel as this model was available both ways. Also note that CC also built a 42 SF during this period so you have to separate those out as well.

The dealer who has Arch Support listed for $99,000 sold a 1985 model named No Drama last July for $65,000. No Drama was repowered with DD 6V71ís.

Without seeing the boat it seems like something around 70k would be about right.

This model was previously built by Uniflite who went out of business. CC bought the molds, made some changes and put them back into production.

Arch Support was built in 1985 as a 1986 model so has the updated flybridge which makes it more desirable.

These boats are a solid Chevrolet quality with a great layout.

Thanks, sailpower. The info is appreciated. Indeed, we were looking at Arch Support. And we bought it today!!! We took a marine surveyor with us, the one who will do the actual survey next week. He looked it over and said it was in excellent or "Bristol" condition. He provided his assessment of fair market value. I negotiated a deal for a couple of thousand under FMV. Feeling very good about it!
