Tender, Priced and Sold Separately from Main Boat?

I'm not sure this is the correct forum (if not, sorry to the Mods)

Is it usual in the USA to sell a yacht and negotiate a price for the tender as an extra? I've seen it a few times where the yacht was priced around $1,000,000 and the tender was extra! The tender couldn't have been worth more than $8,000. Is it just me or would you think this was being a little miserly. This example is extreme but it puzzles me. http://www.nordhavn.com/brokerage/li.../mighty_mouse/

On new boats tenders are usually the buyer's choice and extra. Often purchased elsewhere. At $1,000,000 and up I would think the yacht would have one with the sale in most cases.

It's called haggling. Use your shopping skills to either exclude, or include the dink.......i2f

Isn't it something to do with the type of tender being slightly personal. You know,, the stationwagon model or the racecar... Sort of like a preference to cars

When I bought my boat I had a separate bill of sale for the dingy, because I have to register it in Fl and they have to have a dollar amount on the form. It can't be zero and it can't be the sale price of the boat.
It is considered, in Florida, another completely separate boat with title and registration.
It was not negotiated separately. It was just another amount (a portion of the total) so the state could be satisfied.

It's also due to a little thing called marketing and price shopping/price consciousness. The sellers of the big boat "A", don't want you running off to the competition when you see their big boat "B" is $8K less since it doesn't come with a dink/engine combo.

Fair Winds,

Many folks don't show a tender when advertising their boat. If shown, the prospective purchaser usually wants you to "throw it in". If you're selling and moving up you might want to take your tender with you.

My boat had the dink listed as an option... I just ignored it and made an offer based on the dink being included as part of the price offered and the repairs listed from the survey. Offer was accepted without much difficulty. It is best to know where the owner is located and see how far the boat is. That removes the thought of taking it home in many locations such as the Carib. Brokers don't really want to mess with an orphan dink.

If I was buying an expensive boat and the seller wanted to treat separately for the dink, I'd start to wonder what else he'd penny-pinched on.
