Default Boat Wholesale Pricing

I know the boat pricing subject has been beaten to death. I am trying to figure out what the wholesale pricing is on my boat. I have a 99 powerquest silencer, 28' with 502 mag. All the standard options including a trailer. Where would I find this price or can anyone give it to me. I have been thinking about trading it in and that is what the dealers say for pricing. The condition is fair. Thanks everyone.

It depends on real ACV (actual cash value) or what they are showing you. Rule of thumb.............. low book less 20-25% less any repairs. Maybe less in this market

If you go by NADA: A Silencer shows with a 310 HP $27,650 add in the extra HP $3900 would be $31,550 X 20%= $25,240 @ 25%= $23,662 this all depends on the boat you are trading in on Value on what percentage.

Basic ACV is about 18-20 due to current mkt conditions and the fact that Powerquest is out of business etc. Leaning 18ish.

I offered $25K for a 99 280 Silencer and the guy basically got pissed off and started to walk away. The whole time my wife was watching him as we walked back to our car to leave. Once he realized we were leaving, he turned and said I got an offer for $28K that I turned down. Being my brash self, I replied "You should've taken it." Maybe I should have just said I've got your number, let me think about it.

Why do people in today's market, with boats they can't afford and NEED to sell get pissed when you offer them a "wholesale" value? I'm in Louisville, KY. Home of UPS, Ford F-250 plant, Ford Explorer Plant, and GE appliances. The Ford plants are shutting down for a month at a time, GE is for sale, and UPS is cutting back.

But yes, wholesale is 20-25% below the NADA low.

You are offering nothing for boats. I understand why the salemen watched you go back to your car and leave.

Ouch, that hurt. I made you an offer that was as high as I could afford. I didn't push it on you or anything of the sort. I responded to a voice message you left me indicating you had another interested party. Instead of leaving you wondering, I gave you my best offer. I even stated that I knew the boat was worth more. I've sold many things and have never scoffed at an offer no matter how low. I don't put things up for sale that I don't intend to actually sell. An offer is just that, an offer, take it or leave it.

If you're mad that you spent 30 minutes on the phone telling me about your boat, scanning a bunch of documents, and e-mailing some photos, get out of the used boat business and let a broker sell it for you.
