The majority of boats being sold here are on the lower end of the scale. Example- I have a 99 280 Velocity with low hours that can be bought for $49,000! Doesn't sell, nothing wrong with the boat. It just needs a trailer, but that's not a big deal. The price is the lowest in the country, and it's fresh water only. What's up with this?

That is the price range my Baja was in. I would have looked at your Velocity if it were around at the time I bought the Baja. There are a ton of boats in that price range. Without a trailer is somewhat of a hassle to some people. You are sort of cutting out the impulse buyer if they can't tow it home that day.

Hey Mike,

I know Dave P., I'm an NJPPC member also, did you mean my boat or the velocity. Unfortunately, dealers offer sub-value for boats and I priced mine very aggressively to move it.

Thanx

$49 not aggressive for a 99 280 Velocity? Low hours, freshwater? Wow!

I would say high end boats.....$125,000.00 and more....very slow.......but anything under that seems to be moving. My CAT is still for sale at 179,000.............no lookers or even prop spinners
But friends are selling and buying boats all the time. Guess I should should deal with the cheap boats..

I'd like to get 22k with trailer, but would consider something serious in that ball park. There are pics in my gallery also and I can email you more details if you like.

Here's a question ... when you listed your boat ... how much higher than your bottom line did you list it? If bottom, bottom price was say $50K ... did you list it for $55K, $60K, $65K ... or what????

And buyers, what are your general assumptions when when you see a boat listed? Do you assume the seller will take 20% less than the listed price ... or what???
