1982 35' Mooney Departure
A. Maintenance history
was not available at time of survey
B. Provide soft wooden taper plugs next to each underwater thru-hull or seacock for quick response if necessary.
C. Valuation Method: Prices are US dollars.
1. Business Method can be considered. Private pleasure use reported.
2. Cost to Construct Method can be considered. Most of today’s vessels are mass produced of fiberglass
construction is expected to be 10% more than fiberglass
. The cost of replacement is estimated at $230,000. Using straight line depreciation, $100,000 original cost to construct and a 50 year life the value of the vessel is calculated to be $34,000.
3. Market Method: There were four similar kind and utility vessels listed on Soldboats as sold between 2011 and 2015 in the USA, including the subject vessel which was sold in 2011. The average selling price
is $26,401. An internet
search yielded three similar kind and utility vessels on the market in the USA. The average asking price
is $53,014. The asking price is adjusted down by 19% which is the calculated reduction for asking price to selling price on Soldboats yielding an average adjusted price of $40,352.
4. Using the Cost Method of Appraisal for the hull
and machinery, and what the client is willing to pay knowing the vessel’s condition, selling price of the subject vessel in 2011 were all taken into account when determining the Current
Fair Market Value.
5. The current
market value of this vessel is calculated at $19,0000.
