I had two boats that i sold on boat trader go to germany and sweeden. It is a world wide market place. Even with the shipping cost of 4k they still felt they got a steal.

Also check the internet for similar boats, with the internet people arent goint to pay 10k more for a boat when they can go a few more hours for cheaper

Most of whats out there is the 35 outlaws and most Ive seen are higher,but also newer,the 36 is a good bit bigger than the 35and Im sure its heavier and little slower.He's cash buyer,Ive been telling him theres nothing wrong with his 36 that he should keep it,but he wants a 39 Cig

I sold my 253 on www.powerboatlistings.com in about 3 weeks, I asked a reasonable price and I sold it for that price. Had 3 interested people. Had 2 other friends sell thier boats on there too. Best part is its free.....

I think the boat is priced right at 85K. It takes a while to move the bigger boats these days unless it is a Cig or Nor-tech etc. This boat is only 6 yrs old. I would just list it every where you can. The more exposure, the better.

Fountain4402--

Please show me a 36 foot boat that "only" takes 500 bucks to fill up !!!! I just put mine in the water last weekend and for 600 bucks I got only a little over a half tank !!!!

Do yourself a favor and don't ever buy a bigger boat if you think 500 bucks is a lot to pay to fill a tank on a boat.

Call it something other than a Baja and you might get more calls.
