Not sure there is an answer to that question. Prices of newer and classic models now seem to be all over the place. Feejer has a mint 2005 with lots of extras on the market for $19,500. Don't know if it has sold. As with houses, the market has indeed changed. Hope you are able to sell it.

Why don't you swing by Chesapeake Whalertowne in Grasonville and see if they would broker it for you or could at least give you a good resale ballpark.

Perhaps in a few more months when the weather starts to warm, and folks start feeling more confidence in the economy, that would be the best time to advertise and get top dollar. It appears to be quite the buyer's market right now, even on Whalers, which have traditionally been very solid. That's a great boat you have - I wish I could swing buying one like it. Thanks, Mav

Depending on what you have on the boat I would think you could get 21K. Their are lots of factors. In the last two weeks I've been offered anywhere from 12.5K - 18K from dealers. These are prices I would get If I traded in the boat. 12.K is the current blue book value on mine. If my boat was not in Indoor rack storage (can't get it until April 1st, it would have been sold a month ago for 19.5

Didn't realize some indoor rack storage facilities didn't allow access to boats for a portion of the year.

Yea it sucks. I understand why, but that does not make me feel any better when I had a buyer in December. My boat is 4 racks high in the back of the building. After they get all rack boats in for the season they then put all the boats on trailers inside for the folks who paid for that. 400 boats on racks and another 80 packed in on the ground floor. I offered the guy 200 bucks to take my boat out but he turned it down. It would take him two days of moving boats around just to get to mine.

thanks for input and reply. I was thinking 21,000 but would probably take a little less.
