Hi Guys,

I am considering selling my boat and getting a little "older" closed bow boat. I know this is a bad time to try and sell since it is the end of the season tied to a horrible economy. Anyway here is what I have...

2000 PS 195. White hull with small blue stripe. Super clean boat, no accidents, no gel coat work, near perfect hull, swim platform, carpet, and uphostry. Everything works. 310 predator engine. 280 hours. Garage kept in winter, on lift covered in summer. 100% factory MC except for an upgraded Clarion head unit with i-pod interface. Trailer is in equal condition.

Do you think I could even sell it? I would like to get $18-19K out of it as you would be hard pressed to find a cleaner, lower hour 195.

Thanks for any advice.

Sounds like a reasonable price to me. That being said the market is awful soft right now.

It's really going to be a matter of finding the perfect buyer this time of year. The price seems okay. I got 16.3 for my 99 SS at the middle of Sept. and it had 160 hours with the same motor. Granted, mine was a lesser model features wise than what you have. I would think that yours would be worth at least 1500 more than mine but October isn't the most opportune time to try it.

List it and see what happens. You won't know until you try.

Sold my 93 last September for a good price. That said, it's not last year. My write up was obnoxiously long and I posted so many pictures I almost had to take more.

awful time, but a money mindful buyer might just realize that its a decent price and a if he wants one in the spring he's gonna have to pony up more cash then.
