MSRP of older boats

Over the years, I have noticed what I think to be a correlation between resale prices and the original price of the boat. If I'm correct, the better built boats tend to hold their value as long as they are well maintained. Does anyone know how to obtain the original MSRP of boats in general? I would like to put together a schedule showing the relationship between original prices and the subsequent resale prices spanning 20 or 30 years. I think it would be quite revealing.

Re: MSRP of older boats

I don't think there is an easy way - some owners (and former owners) will know, most won't.

But to kick you off:-

1970 Seadog 30 - 9,600 (and no shillings or pence!), that was basic, extras ran to another 1k. (back then that was an expensive boat, and she was regarded as "quality").

In todays money (various ways to calculate it) IRO 200k / USD300k........they sell for around 15k to 25k (USD25 to USD40k).
