Default I give up !!??

We have had our boat listed for sale most of the year even dropping the price to hopefully make a sale. Recently we started contacting dealers from Florida to New Jersey and more in between about trading the boat in. Every time we talk about a deal on a boat they have in stock or could possible get it all seems to go great. THEN it is the sit and wait game. No one calls you back. So you call them leave messages and STILL no one calls.

Any suggestions on a dealer willing to trade our 1998 47SC in on either a 39 ZCS a 370SS Formula or possibly the 34 or a little bigger Sunseeker.

Preferably the Donzi, but we have even inquired about another Sonic too.

Just frustrated in trying to move into a boat that will better accommodate our boating.

Oh well, maybe we will just wait for the upcoming boat shows and try to put something together then.

Good luck B&P. I know Bill and Anna Ball did their Formula deal in the dead of winter at the DC boat show. Maybe that is the ticket.

If you get a Donzi 39ZSC, keep it in nice shape for me! I am going that direction someday. Blue motors preferred!

What is the book value on your 47SC? What are you trying to sell it for?

Unfortunately, the Fountain SC's were not and still are not big sellers. Also trying to trade DOWN in size is not an easy thing to do.

We are asking $215K only just over 160hrs on engines with 2004 Myco trailer and just about every option Fountain could put in it

According to NADA Around $190-195K
Tried Buc Book but couldn't get it to work today.

Yea, I know downsizing can be a b*t*h but we are still looking at some pretty pricey replacements.

Oh Well

I thought you didnt need a boat like that anymore because you guys had the house on the water already? With that said, what about the Fountain 38 cruiser??
