The first place I visit always when I log on is the classifieds. Before seeing your thread I was thinking that price was a bit on the high side.

Unless it's a cruiser if the year begins with 19 good luck getting over 100K for a boat at this point.

That ad is 10 times better than the ****tards that can't put the year, or make, or length of the boat in the title.

ie. One of a kind, "SACRED GROUND", 27 speedster (at least they got the length in there), Hammerhead, cleanest 42' on market (again, at least they got the length),

WTF kind of titles for an ad are those? One of a kind what?

That might be his payoff. You know there were a lot of bad boat loans just like there were bad home loans. People often financed more than the boat was worth since financing was so soft.

Yup,there is already a thread on here (repo boats) commenting on just that.
People who owe 2-3x what the boats worth cause they did retarded
financing just so they could get a boat+trailer+truck they could not really afford.
Plus the guys that maxed out there credit cards hopping up boats they still owed money on that are now thinking their boat is worth x amount becuase they spent way more on it than boat will ever be worth.
Probably same people who gave all sorts of excuses how much better it was to finance than actually just buy something they could actually afford. Same with houses,cars,etc.. It isnt over yet by a long shot either.

You know that just because someone is having trouble doesn't mean that it was a bad boat loan. Many self employed people that made good money and had NO problem paying their bills have been put out of business simply by the promises of the current administration to tax small businesses into oblivion. The new construction industry is on it's butt for exactly that reason. You don't know what this guy's situation is and you're speculating on things you know nothing about.

It isn't my boat, but I have been a self employed consulting engineer for many years. The absolute lack of new construction due to the current policies in this country have made all of my clients pull back from the amount of business they used to outsource. I am living and making it, but it is much harder than it used to be.

I'm not saying this is the case for the seller, but you have no idea what the case is either. Give the guy the benefit of the doubt before calling him out on buying stuff he can't afford. Until you've walked a mile in his shoes so they say...
