Question Interior, upgrade to new, or leave stock selling my boat,

I'm probably selling my boat, and on the fence of what to do with the interior.

Boat is a 1990, and has the stock interior, and in good shape, just tired, especially on the top edge. But no rips, or damage.

Boat is worth about $13,000-$15,000, and new interior will cost $3,000.

What do you think the selling price would differ with either interior?

I doubt people are willing to pay $3,000 more on a boat of that value???

Good point, I posted some pics on the attached link.

Now that I look at it again (its in storage, so have not seen it for many months)

It looks great in the photos. (hte rear sun pads are new, and the color match is perfect)

those are small pics but from what i see i would leave it...you never get out of a boat what you put into it the only time i recommend for people to get stuff like that done is when it is so bad that buyers would shy away from buying

I'd leave it too. I doubt you will get your money back. Maybe have a quote or let potential buyers know what they could get for 3,000. It can then be their choice. Oh, but remember I can't even sell a candy bar.
