The Cigarette that i bought was listed for 250k last year and even though i liked the looks i never even considered calling him if it had not been for someone on the boards that emailed me i would not have given it a second thought. Was the boat worth 250 Maybe, but i was not going to pay that for it.

4. Reggie-finance sometimes makes it easier for a guy to fund a brand new boat.

5. The internet has made for some pretty savy shoppers.

Best of luck, she's a good looking boat.

Sounds like you may have bought a boat or two in your time

Try these guys; talk to Sam Miller, These guys sold my 357 for me in two months. Mine was priced fair, but certainly not the cheapest on the market. The exposure the gave my boat would have cost me more in advertising costs than the commission ended up costing me. It was 5% and if you bring the buyer than no charge to you. Worth a try.
Best of luck!

I just found a good deal on a boat and need to sell mine asap. A 2000 29 Fountain Fever with HP500 EFI, 172 hours, perfect condition (seriously), freshwater, Indy graphics (red, silver and black) on an upgraded aluminum trailer, for $60K. Is that priced aggressively enough? I haven't seen any within 10K of that number.

We know the feeling. Our 47SC has been for sale for w while also. Reasonably priced at $179K inc Myco trailer and no takers. Tried the trade in route also. It does get frustrating to say the least, but continue on advertising and hopefully as is the saying " there is an a$$ for every seat"
