Easy everyone, Dave P. and Typhoon Marine are some of the fairest and nicest people in the offshore industry. Let's face it a boat's value is in the eye of the beholder, owner, wanter, wisher,etc. Besides, boats like Cig., OL, Apache, Skater etc. will always get more $$ for their names and maintain their value because of it.

I"m not saying anything about the people mentioned above. I'm just laughing at past experiences

Had the seller sold that boat for $75K early last fall, that money invested in a good mutual fund that follows the stock market would now have a value of over $85K.
I love when people have a $65K boat and think it's worth $85K. A boat is only worth what someone is willing to pay for it. If the boat was truly an $85K boat, it would have sold for $85K shortly after it was listed. This boat has been for sale for a long time.

Wake up sellers.
Opinions are like a$$holes everybody has one

The boat is priced fairly for what it is and will sell close to that price.

Wake up sellers.
Bottom line: Stupid people with lots of money can never see the point of selling a little lower and recovering through investment. We have a friend with a $1,000,000+ home that got an offer within $50k of the asking price and didn't sell. He's still sitting on it 12+ months later.
A fool and his money are soon parted unless there is so much around they can't loose it all....

The boat was PURCHASED over a year ago. The boat was legitimately listed for sale 5 months ago. ( count with me 1month -- 2 months - 3 months - 4 months - 5 months )

If it didn't need work - It would be priced over $120k.

As for no one has touched it at $85k....it was sold 4 times already but the banks would not finance the buyers for 15yrs.

Gotta love the Apache experts - OOPS! I mean guys

What is the price then, $85k or $99.9k?

And if it is the latter, has any work been done to the boat since listed at Typhoon for $85K?

Why is it that Apache threads always turn acrimonious?
