Frank, try NADA online. That might give a starting point. Quent

I just talk to Chris the owner of Lavey Craft and he said to list it at $75k that is a fair price even in this market I am going to take it there and have it service and checked out by them and have it detail. I might leave it there for a couple of weeks after the LA Boat Show in Febuary that way people from the show can see it if they go to the factory. Frank

Default 29 Lavey

DaBank, thank you for the pictures. Here is where I am coming from. I want a 29 with twins. If we were able to come to terms on your 29 I will spend significant dollars converting the rig to twins, converting the boat to a mid cuddy bow rider, adding a windshield and transporting the rig to Tennessee.

I know that all this is not your problem but this is where ia am coming from. We will see. Quent

Beautiful boat! What's it run with the 525?

If you were a repo lot I'd be sending you bids right now for way less.

Seriously though, I do wish this was in my range as it is something I would be very interested in.

From my perspective I think your pricing is fair. However, fairly priced boats aren't moving too fast. There are quite a few deals out there that make it tough for people who aren't forced to sell.

For example, when you're competing with this
http://www.yachtauctions.com/detail.asp?stockNo=20235
it is tough to get fair value. On the other hand if someone wants a Lavey 29 and has the money, it could sell quick.

I don't have PM here, I'll ask you a few questions though if you drop an email here or if you're on another site that can PM?

Thanks,

Rick

Good point- The lavey 29 is beautiful, and I know the brand so I know what you'd be getting for the money.
I went to the sunsation site and the links don't work so I cant really find out what Id like to know to determine what it really is. and I dont see much detail discussion on their boards here...........

Maybe you could tell me (or someone) then I can figure out how close that boat is in the auction to what the Lavey offers. I am not slamming or praising anyone, Id just like to know how sunsation builds their boats

Does sunsation vacuum bag- Or hand layup?

Is the swim step included in the length, or the nose?

What is the oa length?

What is the core material of the boat foam or balsa - depending on what then what material exactly or weight ?

Are the two halves of the boat joined while in the mold - or are they removed and aligned later.

How much wood other than maybe core is in the boat, and where?

Is the boat fully interlined?

How much time is spent curing in the mold?

Is this an in house design- who designed the mold. How old is the mold?

Is the finish paint- or gelcoat? Stickers? done in house?
Is it custom or will you see yourself 10 time every weekend.

How many boats do they build per year?

what is their hull warranty?

How exactly are the seats bolted down?

How long have the people running sunsation been there, and how long have they been in business. Is the guy that sold this boat still there?

Is every boat built by staff employees or do they use part time piece workers?

Who makes the interior?

The Sunsation looks very nice, and Ive never heard anything bad about them, so I couldn't tell you if 50K is what it should be, or if its a deal.




Just Curious- id like to know.........
