Question Any advice on selling a boat?

Unfortunately I think (for many reasons) the boat needs to go...

So how does one sell a boat?

It's a 2001 Baja Hammer (21') with 7.4MPI, first time in the water was april of 2002... less than 50 hours... and it rides on a aluminum tandem axle trailer.

TIA

good quality pics is a MUST.
post it on all the free used boats sites "if there still are some" and ebay. ebay will charge you 40.00 if it doesnt sell but you get national exposure. thats how i sold mine last fall.

If i can add one thing make sure it is clean. I cant tell you how many boat i looked at look as if it never had the inside cleaned since it was new. and the outside as if it was just pulled off the lake..... Good luck with the sale

Make the people come to you too see it, if their really interested they will travel a little. Too many times you'll hear, I can't get loose today, but really need to see it today and I have the cash, only for you to haul it 50 miles for them to tell ya, well thats not what I really want. I learned the hard way.
