If a boat is priced correctly it is going to sell much closer than to asking price compared to a yacht that is priced to high.
It's been touched on in other threads about offering versus asking price.
It isn't a straight formula when it comes to making an offer. If the fair market value on a yacht is $95,000 and the asking price is $100,000 a buy will probably only get the seller to come off their price 5-7%. If a sister ship is priced at $120,000 and goes for fair market value the buyer is going to be paying 20-25% off asking price.
Although, when a seller over prices their boat by 20% it is usually a strong indicator they aren't serious about selling.
