What is "AVC"?

35 might be fair on a trade if they're upgrading and saving 100K on that boat!

ACV = actual cash value. It's what you can sell the boat for TODAY. PERIOD. It's what a dealer would use as a figure then combine that with adjusting the MSRP on a new boat (or used ask price) and come up with a number to show you so you don't feel so bad LOL.

Example..

MSRP is 100K. ACV on trade is 35K. Dealer can really sell the new boat for 85K. but you want a min of 40K. No problem. I'll show you 40 and you pay 90. Still getting 10% disc on the new boat. Psychological

Got it.

The only number worth looking at on trade is difference.

Don't listen to Dollar Bill he used to charge $100.00 just to put the drain plugs in boats.

If I was buying today, I would want the nicest boat (paint, options I want, condition) reasonable hours and offer a few bucks more than the average boat in its class is worth. To me 10-20K more on a 100-150K boat is worth it compared to buying a cheaper repo, short sale whatever since these boats eat 10-20K in a heartbeat!

Problem is too many folks are buried in their loans and can't sell for any price!
Pretty much sums up the whole picture. People threw around $$$ when it was funny money, which ran out some time ago. Dealers wants more for new boats now, and give nothing on trades. Financing is like the old days, and floorplan is too expensive.

BTW, I have a 2006 22' cuddy in great condition, will sell for $56k Nice, low-hour small block, great on gas

Which "should" be a wake up call to those shopping around for new boats.
