Hello! What is the worth of this boat- 1955 chriscraft capri

Hi everyone,
I'm not sure if this is appropriate here. To make a long story short, I'm hoping someone can tell me how much my grandfather's 1955 chriscraft bla-bla is worth.
This boat is unfamiliar to me. This is my grandfather's boat, which he left behind when he died. He is a Pacific Northwest sports fisherman.
I spent most of my vacations as a child with my grandfather, and I had even accompanied him on a few occasions when he went Day-sailing.
I dislike sailing, likewise my husband. I've only sailed a couple of times in the past years! This is because I get seasick, have water-related trauma, and am terrified of various aquatic creatures. I'm going to accept the fact that I don't enjoy it.
Although I've learned that many people enjoy sailing when it's quiet and the sound of the water flowing around the hull is incredibly relaxing, I don't feel the same way. There is a shift in perspective as what's going on on land no longer matters, and it becomes frightening.
I do not know how to include pics on here. Any help will be appreciated

Would totally depend on the current condition of your grandfather's boat, minus the nostalgia-value (sorry). As you can see below, this beautifully maintained, pristine Capri sold for $44,000 USD.

If it hasn't been maintained and has been sitting on the hard for years, it's worth zilch. Cut your losses and sell it to someone for the cost of the outstanding yard fees. (sorry again)

When I did a cursory search, values ranged from $100-$71,000 USD. Pretty broad, but that does reflect a range you would see - dictated entirely by the condition of the boat.

Good luck with the sale,
