Definately let a professional sell it!!! Pay the commission, let them deal with all the headaches, tire kickers and dead beats, and let them store it!!

I sold my 25'er for 27k and it was a major PITA!!! I could not imagine all the details you have to supply, let alone the questions that go along with them.

I have it listed with a pro and he is doing a great job. He actually weeds out "most' of the dreamers, just a couple got by him. The problem is everyone knows it's my boat so they want to talk to me. Sometimes is easier to answer the questions yourself rather then the broker calling 20 times with questions from the say guy.

Gino, Sounds like you need to take a 1 or 2 month vacation on a tropical island. A few years ago I was tired of constant chest pains from the stress of two businesses and two in the works.
After 3 friends had heart attacks by age 31 ( I was 32, now 36) I decided I needed a life and started comming down to Florida from Ohio for a month or three at a time. Now I live down here and I am soo much better off - stress wise.

BTW - I saw Lubejobs up close in Ft. Myers at the poker run. I'm a picky SOB, but I would eat off of every inch of that boat! It must be poetry in motion in the water!

You need to pitch that Mercedes MTI to Lucky Strike. He owns a Mercedes dealership and just sold his TG!



If I had that guy's money I could throw mine out!

If I owned a Mercedes Benz new car store I would have had a boat like that a loooong time ago. We just sell pre-owned Mercedes. Until then I'll just keep bumpin along.

LS, please correct me if I'm wrong... isn't there more $ in used cars/Mercedes than new car sales? After all, no one knows what the pre-owed dealer owns the car for. I'm under the impression that the service dept of a new car dealership brings in the majority of dough.

Good luck Gino, remember, if you don't have your health, you don't have anything.

Holy Crap, 3 cats to sell in this market. That would stress me out too. Good luck moving one.
