Re: Buying a Used Boat & Risk-Management

Don't forget when making offers in boats that the asking price is often set by the broker with high hopes. Now I don't buy the types of boats you're looking at. I for some reason enjoy the work, and this means boats on the cheaper end. I usually start negotiations depending on the condition in the 30-40% asking price range. I'm happy if we end up in the 50-60% range in the end.

So don't be afraid to offer $35k on that $50k boat. You never know they might just take it!
