Default ? for everyone about boat values?

im in the market for a 25-35 baja outlaw/or fountain ,

why does everyone think there boat is worth 10k to 30k over blue book value?

i have cash in hand and cant find a good market deal, im know it might be a little over blue book but whats going on?

curious what everyone else has to say - or if you are running into the same problem.

I don't know about BB value but the boats condition, hours and how it has been taken care of makes a huge difference.

Repo's seem like good deals but you have to wonder how bad they were beat on and maintained when the owners knew they wouldn't have to fix them.
IMO

GLH is right, a lot of those out there, you could spend months looking for one that fits.

Check the blue book value to see if it truly reflects what the option packages are on the boat. When somebody steps up to 500 hp or 525's or 575's and the book only lists 496's. These packages can cost the orignal buyer 30,000 and up. I know it did in my case. Blue book and most banks don't care.

i know you can add for the big hp. motors, and thats what ive been doing - i dont care about the bank beacuse im paying cash,

but i know what you are saying if you are getting a loan they will only approve the loan on a blue book.

check the prices between blue book and nada there is usually a difference in pricing and almost eveyone ( banks and finance companies ) go off nada not blue book and nada is usually higher

my baja last fall had a nada of around 24k i think and since i have had it i put a new outdrive on it at 6k plus and a new interior and stereo in it and there is no way i would sell it for what nada is i would probably loose 10k or 11k selling it for book you have to look at all of the newer parts some people have just recently installed on their boats

belive me i had a 25 outlaw couple years ago lost an easy
10k bettween maint. upgrades and 3k stereo. in 1 year of owning, you can add a little but i think they say the upgrades are worth about half of what you paid,

i always use nada blue book . just to get the higher value
