Re: What price should I ask for my boat...

Probably sell around $24k-32K, depending on location and condition. $16k would probably move the boat within 6 months, again assuming its in good condition.

An excellent idea. Ive been staying in AirB&B's during my trip avoiding snow this winter. Have met some interesting people.

Should you decide to sell, Ive learned that there are two prices,

1- The 'Sit' price which is what the owner thinks its worth including his/her emotional ties. It will usually sit until you reach the:

2-'Sell' price, which is the fair maket value, all else considered.

If you start to high you will miss all the folks who are ready to buy and they rarely come back for a second look.

pirate Re: What price should I ask for my boat...

Right now its at get my money back price.. but if I start putting some serious effort into it Atoll style it'll go up to at least double..
Just hope a young (to me) carpenter comes along who wants a liveaboard and wants to sail where the timbers good and reasonably priced and a build his dream interior..

Since there are many more potential buyers on the other side of the "strait". I would have thought you should deduct 10K from the price because most purchasers are going to have the expense of getting back to the mainland and thence to wherever they are based.

Re: What price should I ask for my boat...

It will cost more than $10k to get most used boats into a condition to cross Bass Strait.

I have done it three times, and each time involved at least work to the engine and rig, and replacing autopilots.

Oh please

If you pick your weather Bass Strait can be a dream. It's only when it turns nasty you need the extra. And travelling via the Islands, you can cross Bass Strait and always have land in sight.

yes me too. I think what they are gambling on is that purchases will come from within Tasmania and not want to travel to the mainland to make a purchase. Which certainly didn't work for me. I very quickly started looking afield. I was willing to purchase from Sydney and Adelaide down. Then picked up what I thought was a bargain from Adelaide. It wasn't in the end, it was fairly priced. But in Tasmania I know it would have been at least 10k more, perhaps as much as 15k more.

You're right, the Bass Straits crossing can be benign. However, if you're on a schedule, and want to shoot straight up to Sydney, it can be a bear.

We've known a number of folks who island hop across. Never done it ourselves. Mainly hop on a good weather window and truck to Eden, then wait for the next southerly to finish the next hop.

PS: Boatie, were you really serious about asking for forum input about pricing your boat?????

I suspect he was merely responding to my comment in another thread to the effect that I'd never seen such a post

If you are lucky.

The fronts come through every two,or three days.

The run from Eden to Bicheno is around three days, or more to Wineglass or Schouten.

One run from Melbourne was a dream run, one in the 80's saw a front do a U turn and catch us in a gale off the east coast on a lee shore.

Another, we had 40knots across the strait and just anchored as 50 knots hit us.

I take my responsibility to my crew, boat and rescuers seriously.

No,Ted,

One time we came via Deal Is., thence to the Tamar to Launceston, and thence across the top, and to Macquarie Hbr., and to Pt. Davey (our first tiem), and eventually to Hobart. It was our second trip.

Luck well, as a person who takes your responsibility to crew, boat and rescuers seriously do a little more risk management in your planning. Avoid such a big hop over three days and you can lesson the risk to those fronts.

Dont get me wrong, i know it can turn nasty, especially the long hop to the East coast. But you can, without any doubt sail across Bass Strait without dramas and the lows

Re: What price should I ask for my boat...

So, just explain again how a long hop taking up to four days can avoid fronts coming through each two days?
