Do some research:
Boats for Sale, New and Used Boats and Yachts - YachtWorld.com


Sometimes the surf is up, and sometimes the surf is down!

Re: The market on sailboats

The price of boats that you wish to buy are rising. The price on boats you wish to sell are falling.

Re: The market on sailboats

+1 Jim, aint that the truth.
It seems to me that prices are about the same as they were last year for used sailboats.
I have been checking out a few models for about 3 years now and to me for they all seem to be about the same. Condition of the boat is very important and very nice boats seem to ask for a premium.

Probably means nothing to you as you will be sponsored for the first non stop non assisted double passage RTW carrying an aquarium on board.

That's a good idea.

I'm told they're designed to be disposable (like dreams).

...when it's done, just pick up the phone and order another.
