I think with trimmed down production in 2004 the buyers market was tapered down a lot. New sales incentives along with low interest rates on new boats are hurting used boat owners a lot. I made an offer on a boat that was listed for 430k and went in with 320k with a survey. After the survey and finding lots of problems I could see why he dropped his price. Buyer beware

Good luck on your search! Are you wanting to stay with an express? Do you prefer diesel? If so the Trojan/Carver 44 is a lot of boat for the cash and particularly soft on the resale side. Have a cheap deal on a 50'plus Sunseeker with bridge 1993 or 94 fresh interior, few details except should be way under market price. However it is not an express.
