It's kind of discouraging. I've done a ton of research and shopping so I know what is a good deal vs a bad deal... But it still makes you feel a little uneasy about spending $30k when NADA says it should only be worth $22k

Having spent the last few days booking values at a boat show, and based on the latest dealer issues of these books I can assure you that NADA is not the high baller some here claim.

FYI, right now ..... NADA would be the buyer's book, BUC would be the seller's book. But both have changed drastically in the past year, sign of the times.

Regardless of how you value it, now would be no different than any time in the past. Rule #1 remains the same ..... If you can't afford to "pay" for it, you have no business buying it!

I have been shopping for about 9 months, checking the NADA values from time to time. They took a serious drop around the first of the year. Stuff that was in the high 30's went downt to the low 20's

That's because according to book, everything's a year older in January.

I never assumed there would be. You can still call "your" bank or any lender who does boat loans and find out the loan value of a particular boat. Once you find out the loan value use it as a bargaining tool. FYI... I WOULD NEVER PAY MORE THAN THE LOAN VALUE FOR ANYTHING! If the seller doesn't understand that and reduce the price then I guess it's really not for sale, is it?
