Question about selling a boat


gobble

Recommended Posts

Is it expected that I leave things like life preservers, bumpers, anchor, etc. in the boat for the new owner or is it common to take those things out? I have a new (used) one waiting for me at a dealer to pick up in spring and I have no idea if that stuff is in there.

Agreed, I only left things specifically requested. And if they would have been expensive items, like good vests or boards/skis then the buyer would have to negotiate those into the sale.

What did you end up with? Were you able to find something local with Tinus?

Thanks guys

I ended up with a 2008 Wakesetter VLX from MN Inboards. You'll see it listed if you look at Minneapolis craigslist. They threw in free storage so I won't have it until next spring.

ive bought 2 boats. 1 came with nothing (he was getting another boat). My 2nd boat came with extra life jackets, fire extingiusher, a bunch fo ropes and other stuff (owner didnt own a boat any more and didnt want the extra stuff).. So i guess its up to you on how nice you want to be to sweeten a deal.

I have not seen it in person. I did see the detailed 5 page trade sheet they completed and a bunch of pictures. Unfortunately I couldn't make it to Minneapolis this weekend and there aren't a whole lot of these boats out there. Big mistake?

I guess I wouldn't be real concerned about it being right and as described, but personally would have looked at something I was spending around 45K on.

Nice looking boat if this is the one

Trouble was it was already shrink wrapped for winter and if I wanted to see it that either meant paying to have it re-wrapped or bringing it home to my driveway.

$41.5 with free storage and spring tune up.

Good price?
