Just on paper it looks to be a nice boat and a good deal. The details of everything of course matter a lot too. Looking good on paper means it would be worth going to see it up close. The basics about the boat to me make it desirable. Inboard engine
and generally good features. It sure isn't ugly either.
I would go over everything close and get a survey
. You might also do some checking on Yachtworld.com to get a better feel where the market is at on Lake Ontario
. If you study the current
boats for sale
you may get an idea if the price
is right. The boat markets are a little funny
these days. If you compare this price
to other prices you may find a better indication if this boat for this money
is as good as others. That is what the market is about and it changes. There are no basic rules about asking vs selling prices. Some folks are just plain stupid and others know the situation and really do want to sell the boat. Do your homework first before you expect them to act like a smart seller.
Closing this boat in the next month means the owner does not have to take care of winterizing. That could be a negotiating point but it does mean you will need to do it soon. Once he has it on the hard
he may not feel like bargaining until spring.
Good luck in finding a boat that's right for you.
