Definitely not hawaii
. I rarely see cats posted for sale
Cats are cheapest in popular charter
locations. A quick search on yacht world will tell you that. These areas are saturated so prices must be competitive.
They are also cheap
in areas that are difficult to get in and out of like Panama
. A guy on here just bought a Lagoon 380
owner's version for $150k in Panama
. He had a challenging time with all aspects of the purchase
due to the location. I think the low price
reflected these difficulties.
The highest price
cats seem to be the ones that had to travel the farthest to get there (i.e. French manufacturer to Australia). Speaking of Australia
, everything is more expensive there so I wouldn't use boats located there when negotiating a price.
