faded trailer = boat sat outside a lot, either on a lift or on the trailer. Doesn't seem like it is up to the level of the OP's boat!

Just trying to make a point if he's asks to high it won't sell..., by all means I want him to get top dollar that would mean I could get more for my classic as well...

A boat is only going to sell for what someone is willing to pay at that time, regardless of what any similar boats have sold for.

Update: I have a sale pending test drive in a couple weeks, when its above freezing, for $7,500 without the boom. I might have been able to get more out of it. After seeing his little kids all excited about it reminded me of how excited I was when we looked at this boat 21 years ago. I couldn't say no.

Thank you to everyone that helped fiqure out the price of this.

I'll take some better pictures of the boom and list it on here in a couple of days.

Yes but most buyers take into consideration what others have sold for when deciding what they are willing to pay.

Honestly I think thats a pretty good price. Everyone thinks their stuff is worth more. I fall victim to this all the time.

At the end of the day

1. You have a well cared for boat that sold close to Nada guide
2. Its the winter
3. Your selling a 24 year old piece of machinery with what most consider pretty high hours.

I have a 24 year old miata, that I have over 12g's worth of upgrades to it with reciepts to prove, not including labor. Engine is "tuned" by an engine calibration engineer (myself) and runs like a top with 220rwhp. It has lots of reliability upgrades done and can do 20 minute track sessions trouble free (which im willing to take serous buyers with cash to prove). People on forums and fellow racers tell me its worth 8k all day. My bottom line is 6, and I havnt sold it yet. Just a bunch of tire kickers and people wanting to go out for a rip. Ill just keep going through tires and gas untill the right person comes along I guess.

Its frustrating, but thats how it goes! Value of anything is only what someone is willing to pay. You did pretty good at 7.5k, and I think most would agree.
