What do you think a ball park selling price would be for a 23 foot 1997 conquest in very good condition with trailer and average electronics. I checked boat trader etc and every 23 foot conquest no mater what the year is listed for essentiaslly 40,000+ dollars which makes no sense thanks ron

They might all be listed at $40,000-plus, but what are they actually selling for? Try following some old listings and contacting the seller to see what the final sales prices turned out to be. Maybe they all go for north of 40--who can say?

What kind and amount of power, single or twins? What kind of accessories (salt/fresh water wash down, comfort packages, trim tabs etc.)? Aluminum or galvanized trailer? How do you define average electronics (VHF, GPS, FishFinder, Radar, premium brands, low cost brands, etc.)?

Given that the list price for a new Whaler in that size range with a decent power package and a trailer, is probably more than $60,000 and that Whaler's generally hold their value better than other brands, $40,000+ might be right. To some it might be worth that amount, to others it might not be worth half that. But to follow Jimh's lead, who can really say?

What you have to do here is figure out what is the maximum amount you are willing to pay and then make offers up to your maximum. Don't be afraid to test the water but be prepared to take delivery if you succeed. If you do not get a deal done at your maximum then you will know that the "ball park selling price", to the extent there is such a thing, is more than your maximum.
