Take note that they are the ones saying that STEALING one is a rare occurrence and not the rule.

I have been boatless for a LONG time(not my choice) but I choose to at least watch the market and only OCCASIONALLY comment.

WE all have a DREAM boat. It's just relative to your checkbook. I would kill for a sweet 388 or 40' MTI. Some guys want a big cuiser, and some want a Feadship.

However, like the housing market, you can do your best to time the market, but how many DIAMOND properties(or boats) will sell while you wait. Is it really worth another $5-10k to get your second choice?

Not to me. The point where my bank acct and the boat I really like are at a crossroads, I'm buying. I will not watch it go somewhere else over a few $k and miss more boating time.

Nothing wrong with trying to make a deal, and that doesn't make you a Dreamer, it's just better to pull the trigger sometimes.

Example. Does Dreamer need his old 28' Cig ? No. BLee need that cool 20' Cig? No. Just that they decided boating fun was more impotant than waiting on the NEXT deal.

Just my 2 cents.
DAMMN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Cash, nice job.

People that buy these boats want that new boat smell. The second hand market is tied with the housing market and is in the toilet. It's a distressed sell that could go much lower.

Well spoken...............as Tommy Boy says......."the salesman has entered the building"......... The don't let the #1 choice get away for a few dollars can be applied to real estate just as easily. "Reduce to the ridiculous" comes in handy at this point in the close, 20K wrapped into a 30 yr 7% loan is $133 a month or less than $4.50 a day. So M/M Future Homeowner do you want to lose this dream home for less than a Starbucks coffee every day?

Of course my response to the seller is always , If it is only $4.50 a day why don't you just give it to me!

Default 35 fountain

I was told they sold that 35 Fountain for $ 108,000. And was a clean boat, not a bad deal....

As an investor, that is the way you should think.

For the person that actually is buying their dream home(or boat) $4.50 a day is a small price to pay.

My commercial buyers ALWAYS think in dollars, my residential clients usually think with emotion. Both ways are right.

Two sides to the same coin.
