Boat buying question.

First please forgive my ignorance. I am going shopping for a boat. The last boat I purchased was a 25' sloop and that was 20 years ago. I am now looking to move up into a 41-45 foot boat which I plane on spending most if not all my time on (I am getting ready to retire). I am thinking of making a trip south to look at a 1977 Gulfstar center cockpit.

My question is, the asking price posted on yachtworld, are those usually posted with room for negotiation? (I have never gone through a broker before). I am not looking to "low ball" or cheat anyone I just want the best deal possible and thought it would not hurt to ask here.

Thank you.

Re: Boat buying question.

Those prices are an asking price. Offer what the boat is worth to you, but base that worth in comps, or deficiencies, etc....
