Ready to sell your boat?

First off, if you have a boat for sale, I hope you’re looking to upgrade, not giving up the sport of fishing completely. Either way, when the time comes to sell your boat, there are some things that you really need to look at in order to make sure you get a fair value without pricing yourself out of the market.

The one thing I notice more than ever is that people believe their boat is worth a lot more than it actually is. You have to realize that just because your boat has aftermarket toys and amenities, they don’t necessarily make the boat itself worth more money. I am learning this as I go through the process of getting my boat cleaned up and ready for the market. I have done my research and looked at the prices that some people want for their boat — it’s unreal. When you sit down and compare asking prices to Kelly Blue Book values, you will be shocked.
