Yes sell it yourself, it will probably sell quickly as clean as it is.

Unless you don't to go through the hassel of earning another 5-6 grand off it. I'd definitely sell it yourself, that's in great shape and anyone looking for that model boat will gladly pay the extra money for a boat that they know someone took care of. Tell the dealer 17k or no deal :cool:

Craiglist that sucker and it will be gone in a day or two at $17~18

From what i`ve seen you should have no problem getting 18K for it. Up here in Canada i bet it would move fast at $20k.

One point to consider is whether the purchase price of the new boat included you providing the used boat as trade in at the specified price. If so, you will likely hear the dealer will want to renegotiate the new boat agreed upon purchase price as he may have given a steeper discount on the new boat knowing he was going to make it up on the profit from the trade in. That being said, it's always best to negotiate the price up front without a trade in and only then ask what they would give you for the boat. That way it's easier to see what you are actually paying for the boat. In general, dealers also have costs associated with selling the used boat. If they aren't going to be making a grand or two profit, the risk on selling may be too great. $13 is pretty low though and they would likely sell close to $18 the way boat sales have been this last few months in the bay area. $15~16 would still give them some profit though.

Ya, I know the game. I did the neg. for the new boat first and did not even let them see my old boat. I'm not worried... it's a mastercraft, ran it for 12 years with no issues- there is not a better quality water sports boat out there, it will sell, Thanks

You are dialed then!- sell it yourself. To give you an idea of pricing, i live near san ramon and bought a 2000 (turned out to be 2001) 205v with factory tower, $3k amp & speakers, manual ballast bags and just over 300 hrs for $20k in excellent condition this last june from original owner. Owner sold it to me the day he put it in the paper and he got 4 or 5 calls on it before i called and a few on the cell while i was there looking at it (had to leave work early to beat out the other buyers that were coming after work to see it). Had called on 5 or 6 other boats similar age and condition around the same time and they didnt last more than a day or 2. A clean boat like yours will be gone in a flash!

Do yourself a favor, list the boat in the $22-24K range and see what happens... Used boats are insane right now. I used to buy and sell these boats as a hobby before the 08 crash and I can 100% tell you that I have never seen the used "Inboard" market like it is today. Clean boats don't last more than 3 days right now and they are really hard to find. I think that it has become common knowledge that these boat new cost upwards of 60 to 120K (which is another story....i.e. all boat manufactures are going to have to find a way to curb the price of new boats) Anyway if you boat is clean, never wrecked, and has had no Gel Coat work, then list it high and see what happens.

I have the same boat. I'd list it for $20k. Your interior looks clean and that is low hours. It'll sell. Too, that is the final year they made the 205 DD.
