I am trying to sell a boat and am using the average retail price of the boat, motor and trailer as the initial asking price. What do you guys think of using this as a basic guideline? I am willing to negotiate, but I have to start somewhere. The reason I am asking is that I am getting some rediculous offers from people. I have recived three offers on the boat and the highest was $1000 less than the wholesale value of the boat (which I could get right now from the dealer). Is this a bad year to try to sell a boat or am I just getting some people who are looking for the buy of the century? Maybe I am advertising in the wrong place (local newspaper classifieds). To be honest, I would keep the boat and let it rot in a shed before I would sell it for what these guys are offering. I would appreciate any advice that you can give.
