Default Sale boat or part out?

I need some input here. I have had a boat for sale in the swap section for some time with no real activity. I understand that the boat market is deflated and I am wondering if it is better to part out the boat, despite it being in great shape with little use. I took the boat as payment of a debt but I really do not need a sixth boat. It needs to be moved one way or the other because of the storage situation. It has all the GOOD parts and engine. What is the realistic market now for 540 engine, 280 K-planes, dual hydraulic steering system, Bravo with IMCO upgrades, Stainless Marine exhaust, strainers, etc. etc. What is the realistic market for bare hulls? This is the boat:

Thanks for any input.

Nice boat-- the market sucks to sell a boat. I'm lucky I sold mine when I did last year.....best of luck to you with the sale.

You said that you have 6 boats??? Can you say obsession?

He's passed me now. I delivered my Donzi Minx to Pompano today, that puts me down to five, from eight last summer.

That's a nice piece. I'd try to sell it intact.

I'd have it towed up to Orlando so I can use it while I'm here to keep entertained.

Chris, I'm trying to reduce the number of boats. Mike has a kick ass Magnum that we are restoring..........

Stan, get your ass down to Miami, Albert and I are ready to take you for a "leisurely cruise" around Biscayne Bay..........

Andy, I'll take you up on that ride any time.................

Thanks Fred, it is a really nice boat...... I just really need to move it.
