I can change the registration, that is not an issue.

It's well used, and well maintained. If a part is past it's hours it's replaced with new.

Which would be a better market for selling it?

No question about it. Not to mention 12 months of sales potential, not just spring through fall. Who buys a boat in December in NY, know what I mean?

Better yet... Sell it in Michigan. I bought my Bullet from Michigan. Freah water and LOTS of boaters.

Good luck!

Unfortunately for sellers, it's a buyers market up here right now. Everything is either sitting or going very cheap. Might not be a good idea right now.

Florida is just getting ready for selling season. If you want to move it in the near future, I'd display it for sale in FL.

Thanks...

My last boat I sold at the end of the season when I least expected it.

I think I'll leave it in FL for now.

It's such a toss up. FL is better for sea trial, but NY has way more people/buyers.
