  • How to Price

    How is the best way to determine a selling price? We are thinking about selling our 1996 17' CC Mako. It is in great shape but we just want something a little bigger.

    Google the year & model. And then you are only seeing the asking price, not the actual selling price.

    NADA I think gives you a pretty good indication also.

      I always try break the boat apart (mentally) to get a good price range. For example, does it have a good trailer? Does it have a good t-top (or any t-top)? How old is the engine? How many working "gadgets" does the boat have? Is the boat structurally sound (i.e. transom)? Start thinking about the value of each and it will help you come up with a good range. Of course, looking on Craigslist will give you a general idea of what similar boats are going for.

        I look at craigslist, boat trader, etc and see what others are asking so I can gauge the market listing prices and then go from there. there are of course regional differences.
