I recently, as in a few weeks ago, sold
a 24' fishing
boat. It was sold 12 hours after it came on the market, and I got $7K more for it than what I paid for it. At the brokers recommendation, we jacked the price up, due to the powerboat market being so hot. In essence we got full asking price. Never had that happen before. There was no negotiation.
Never seen the powerboat market so hot.
The sailboat market, in my opinion, is in a bit of a slump, due to the C-19 thing. Folks aren't buying
sailboats as there is limited places to go. YW is packed to the brim with sailboats that aren't going anywhere. If you are a seller, and you want to move the boat, you will likely have to consider lowering your ask. Just my opinion, otherwise, you'll be in for a long wait, and don't forget, sailboats in a marina continue to require monthly dockage fees
, etc, that quickly eat into a seller's expected value of his boat.
Power boats and fishing
boats are taken out for the day and then returned to home base, be it a driveway or marina. Sailboats typically travel from area to area. It's a different market.
