Default Made a offer! (Values)

I made an offer! On a Kachina.. I didn't get it (they want to0 much) Getting ready to make an offer on a sunsation later today Can anyone help me with values ? Is the Nada boat value accurate, high or low? Seems to me everyone wants way more then the boats are worth? I am trying to buy one for 10% less low retail (nada) in perfect shape. Am i being unrealstic? (looking at 2003 thru 2005 boats) TX for any post!

Sunsation Dominators are pretty nice boats. Screw buying via a dealer!! You are just paying his comission on top of what you should be paying the seller. Be vigilant!!!!

I believe NADA low retail for a PERFECT boat is a fair/good deal. I bought and sold a number of express cruisers and low retail was my selling price. Obviously I bought them cheaper but they were in less than perfect condition. I usually spent 100+ hours getting them up to "low retail" prices.

Throw out a price you want to pay and walk away.

Yes... You might be unrealistic in your criteria. However, if you are willing to conduct a long and time-consuming search, then you just might find the "perfect boat" at a great price.

I am also searching for the "perfect boat", but I am willing to pay "average NADA retail" for it.

Good luck!

I'd say buy a powerplay with three man race bolsters! I think you can find one somewhere around here.
