Default Selling Boat

We have had our boat listed for a few months. Is 150,000 to much for this boat and a new Manning Trailer? Have not had one call on it. Man the economy really sucks.

Good looking dash. That price doesn't seem out of line, but in this market it's probably a little on the high side.

99 by me with trips 502 on a myco alum trlr . Owner will give another 10g credit for paint if you don't really love it. Asking 90. these are taking a bath. Yours is much nicer & I like the setup. Good luck.

I have a 2000 32 fever, 94 hours for sale, 83,900, a few nibbles but nothing serious. Those who can afford to buy your boat wants to steal it. It's a bad time to sale a boat with $4 gass. Thank GWB for this mess...

Look around at what selling prices are (not asking). In order to get it sold my guess would put you in the $120's

FYI: My clean 2002 382 with fresh-built motors (630HP, 700TQ) and a new trailer hasn't generated any calls at $133K.

As a buyer I'd be looking to pick something up that is clean for just under trade-in.....plenty of those deals out there.

Seems like a lot of boat and priced pretty fair, but man NOBODY is calling or buying crap......I've got my '05 27 Fever with 105 hours on it listed and i'm almost down into the high $50k range and still can't sell it, so who knows. Good luck though, everyone trying to sell now needs it!!
