    I appreciate the insight! If the true value of the vessel is sub-$100k, then I’ll gladly keep it and use it a handful of times annually and be content knowing I’m merely riding out the flat part of the depreciation curve for a few more years. Thanks gentleman!

    I tried selling our last boat, a Bristol 2008 Rinker 350 in 2014 on my own. It was a rare boat for the west coast but priced right and stayed on market for over a year. I eventually traded it in on the 44 and our broker had it sold in a week! I believe that buyers in the $100,000 plus market want the full service one stop shopping experience that a broker offers. When its time to sell and move up we will definitely use the services of a broker and just bite the bullet when we cut the commission check.
