Default How to value a 2002 Fountain 35' lightning

Hi All,
I'm looking at a 2002 Fountain 35' Lightning that seems to be a really good price.
What options, power packages etc make this boat more or less valuable?
What was stock in that boat?
(Does anyone know what it weighs and will my 7.3 PSD Excursion tow it away?)
Thanks
Evan

My guess is you could tow two of those one over the other with your PSD.

As for market values I would check similar rides in the classified here and on boattrader.com.

You might want to call Fountain and ask them by how much they will cut the price of new ones this year also it usally affects re-sale somewhat...

Here is what I pulled with my Ex and it was a V-10.

I've been told about +15% for 06.

Interest rates on the rise too.

Everything is going up due to energy costs in all industry.

Go to the NADA web site. They allow you to plug in a large variety of options and the trailer for a reasonable estimate. At least you'll have a base number to work with.
