    Used boat sales

    I was wondering what experience you all had with used boat sales this year. Mines for sale and I would like to hear if you guys see it down, up, or the same...

    Lake Eufaula, Ok.


    Actually, outstanding!! I sold my old the 1st guy that responded to an add on OSO the 1st day it was posted. Of course, there was some negotiations but still.....sold to 1st responder on the 1st day the add was posted???? Pretty good !!
    OSO RULES !!
    I also found my new boat on OSO, & went to Arizona to trial it.
    This is an excellent source (OSO) to buy or sell.......ya' just gotta be askin' the right price & have the right product to sell......face it, turkeys only sell at Thanksgiving!!

    In our area, Western NY, used sales are up this year. I am actually short on used inventory. We are looking for brokered boats to sell!
    The reason for this, I am finding, is people are staying closer to home after 9/11. Many are first time boaters or people returning to boating. Pool and RV sales are also up here. New boat sales are down.

    I hope there will be some good responses to this topic. I'm also very interested in the used boat market. The wife and I are both in total agreeance(sp) that we are in dire need of a bigger boat. We are doing some financial shuffling and will hopefully be ready to buy this fall or winter at the latest.

    I bought a used 35 back in March and sold my 28 in I guess you could say that used boat sales have been pretty good where I have been concerned.

    At the marina where I keep my boat, there are a few used boats for sale but only one has been sold.

    On TraderOnline, I still see alot of the same Cigarettes that have been for sale for a while, but they are higher priced...the good deals usually get snatched up pretty quickly while the higher priced boats seem to take more time to sell. I think it is a reflection on the obvious state of the economy where only those with considerable wealth or income are willing to take the chance and buy the 100-500k boat...while people like me just wait for the deals to come along...

    I am the same as Sean

    I bought a Baja 25 Outlaw at the end of last summer, sold it this spring, then bought a 24 Skater a month and a half ago.

    The Baja was found on Traderonline at an awesome price. I sold it cheaper than lesser equipped 25 Outlaws. Basically, I bought it right, then sold it to another guy right. He drove 13+ hours one way to buy my boat. That boat sold in less than a month.

    I always planned on buying a 24-28 Skater if the right deal came across. I found mine on Traderonline an hour after the guy posted the ad. I called him the minute I read the ad, took the next day off from work and drove 600 miles one way that evening to buy it.

    There are so many different boats in all price catagories that it makes such a buyer's market. As you can see, people will go out of their way for a good deal. I will always wait around for the deal, and traveling across the US doesn't bother me if the deal is that good.
