So many variables that effect prices, ie; maintenance, driving styles, dry storage, salt vs fresh ....a never-ending list. Sounds like you are on the right track. Find the boat you like, exercise through due diligence and its "true value" is what you are willing to pay.....I'm having trouble figuring how much a boat is worth. I've checked out NADA, which is about 35k, searched similar boats for sale and found the from 28k, 34k, 45k, and 48k ( all within 2 years of each other). Any suggestions?
First pic is from powering through a sandbar. Not normal wear and tear. But 99% of the boats that run the river/gorge will look like that.Here is some additional pictures. Is this normal wear and tear?
