This would be a very simple thing to add to a site like yachtsworld. Strange that they don't do it.
They do. It's called soldboats.com and you need a Yachtworld brokerage membership
to access it. I've never met a broker that was willing to give out his password, but they have always been willing to print out a page or two of the sales history
of a particular year/ model that you you may be shopping
Keep in mind however that the sales data is self-reported to soldboats by the selling broker, so use the info with reasonable skepticism.
