    There may be quite a few boats over-priced but I think a lot of buyers want the "deal of a lifetime" right now. To me the overall condition of the boat says a lot of how it should be priced.

    Two identical boats. One a Florida boat that was kept on an uncovered lift year round, oil changed every 100 hours, dock gashes all over it, gel coat faded, vinyl dried up, carpet ruined, powder coating falling off, etc vs a boat that was garage kept, oil changed every 20 hours in great condition.

    How much more is the better boat worth? To me a lot. But that's me.

It doesn't matter if it is a boat, a house or a car. Let them start to imagine what it would be like to have it sold before they have any idea where you are at on price. Let them like you as a person than they don't seem to have such a negative reaction to price (and if you are honest with them at that point they will be honest with you). I am a firm believer that most people that are able to take a hit, will if they know that their boat is going to a good home that is going to treat it well. The other thing is let them know that you are ready willing and able (able being the most important). There are a lot of tire kickers out there that have no intentions of ever seeing a sale through.
    Solid advice
