If its a baja....bajaboatsforsale.com I tried several other places like boat trader, local media, etc. I got 90% of activity and a sale from bbforsale. Got some calles from OSO classifieds too. Took me a couple months to sell it, and a couple price mods. You will need to price yours at the average NADA value....people are bargin hunting right now and mine was REAL clean and low hr. Finally a guy from canada drove down 1200 miles to buy it cash. I got several calls from canada.

So in general, are people getting "Average" or "Low" NADA value if they sell a boat themselves?

Sold mine in a little over a week advertised here and a couple of other places. Most of my hits came from OSO. I also had the boat priced right. I agree with others that many are priced to high for one reason or another.

OSO is the only place for our kind of boats. Price is the MOST important factor right now.

NADA is worthless unless you're buying a bayliner.

BUC is much more accurate.

arent you on the wrong forum. this is a sight for boat owners. not car owners




time of year has a lot to do with it also. april brings out the buyers. i will never try and sell a boat over winter again.
