The statement that they have superior resale

threads. Is it really true ?
It seems to me in looking thru the classifieds,
that this really doesn't seem to be the case. Yes
the are usally selling for more than Donzi,Formula
and Fountain......but they cost 2-3 times more to
begin with. The Gladiator market really comes to
mind. It seems they have a really low resale compared
to the price they cost new and there seems to be a
few of them that have been for sale for quite some
time.
Cigs guys,please don't get all defensive. This is
not a dis. Your boats are awesome. I'm just curious
as the "high resale statement" gets used quite often.
Not causing controversy... let me just say this: In my experience, there's ALWAYS someone willing to pay top dollar for your boat... and there's also ALWAYS 100x more people willing to only pay salvage value ( ).

So, with the above being said, it is my opinion that if you hold out for a fair price, your odds in getting it in a Cig. are higher than with most other boats.

P.S. Mine is for sale in the Classifieds (it matches my Avatar).

Hope this helps,
Joe

Do Cigs have superior resale value ?
In my opinion what ever you pay for a Cigarette you will probably get your money back plus.
Don't expect to get the money back you spend on it.

to simply answer your question...Yes, they do. But that is especially true with the older ones.


You have to look, look, look to find the right one.....and they are out there!!!!!

A cig retails for at least 150k more then any other 38 foot boat. It like any thing if you pice it right for resale youll sell it quick. It depends on the model and make of the boat
