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?

Are you financing?
Hard to say anymore. I'd check with whoever you're planning on borrowing from. See what they'll lend you, that's going to be about what it's worth.

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.....

Suggestions;
Once you think you have found your boat, post up some pics and specs here and you will get plenty of "good" feedback in no time!

Here is some additional pictures. Is this normal wear and tear?
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.

Second is water spotting from the hot upper bearings drying the water on the drive. Normal wear and tear.

Thanks for all the input everyone. I really like the layout of the essex valor and vortex. I'm looking for a similar layout, 22-26ft, 496 or bigger, with a blue or red gel coat scheme. The only other boats I have seen that are similar are caliber one's. I would really want to spend 35k max, but if the boat is everything I want and plus some, ill pull some strings.

I'm getting a 23' cobra built right now but I really like the cuddy cab... We looked at both since the shops aren't too far from my house

Nice boat. I have a similar setup (Lightning 24XS). I think it may be the same hull. We love it!
