There will come a time in our lives when we need to let go something that we used to enjoy having in order to give space to a new opportunity. I always believe in the old adage “the only constant in life is change,” and change in our lives is good because it gives us more experiences, allows us to move forward, and gives us room to grow. So, even when I had a rueful time in handing over my 4-year-old 1980 South Coast Eclipse 22 to his new owner to make way for a privilege to own a Catalina 14.2 Expo, I embraced the inviting feeling of a new beginning with my new boat.
Apart from emotionally preparing myself for the turnover, I prepared all the necessary paperwork and I’m telling you, this process is not an easy task, especially identifying how much is a boat worth. I cannot simply decide on a price I want because there are boat selling guides and consumer interest factors that I need to review and consider. I honestly did not know how or where to start. I did not want to have a greedy reputation to buyers for unreasonably pricing an item that does not meet its condition standards. I went to the nearest yacht shop and asked for assistance, and there I met a yacht consultant who introduced me to boats.com, a marine Internet marketplace for boat sellers, buyers, and manufacturers. Everything you need to know about selling boats you can find in the webpage Sell Boats option. For pricing assistance, you can find the Price My Boat for Sale option on the Sellers Resource menu, where you will be directed to the NADA Guide, a leading vehicle pricing and information guide company. NADA Guide and Boats.com utilize a software database that assist their clients in the buying and selling processes of their vehicles, land or sea. However, before you proceed with filling out the database, you might want to read a few helpful information found on this link www.boats.com/boat-content/sell-my-boat-guide/how-to-price-my-boat/.
In the United States of America, there are two trusted boat price evaluation companies, the BUC® International Corporation and Boats.com, if you want to know how much is a boat worth, either for selling, buying, or chartering. I suggest you check on these companies first to learn more about the trading industry for boats and yachts. Another option that you might want to consider is hiring a boat sales marketing consultant in one of your trusted marine vehicle surveyor companies.
