    Great boat! Even greater price. Maybe I'm living in a fairytale, but that asking price seems about $20k lower than it should be. Is that priced for a quick sale or is that the fair market value in your geographic area?

    Thanks! I believe it is a very aggressive price for our area. There are much smaller gas boats for around the same price so I believe it is a very good deal.

    I was going to sulk for months if that was the fair market value for my boat, lol. Someone is going to get one heck of a great deal. Good luck!
    Did you do the electronics upgrade yourself?

    Thanks for the kind words on the boat, someone really is going to get a lot of boat for the money. I did not do the electronics upgrade, that is beyond my abilities. I did put the blue tooth module in the stereo but beyond that it takes a checkbook to fix for me.

    Any buyers out there? Make me an offer, you never know until you ask. I am willing to consider partial trades of lesser value.

    Re: 1997 Sundancer 400 Diesel $89,000

    If I didn't have to sell mine first I'd be up for a drive to VA. Unless you're looking for a 340?? ha. This is very much the type of rig I think I'll be settling on next. I've had thoughts of a bridge boat but I think the first mate and I will be going for a 390/400 Sundancer. Diesels would be icing on the cake...

    My two cents - if this were my boat to sell I'd invest a few thousand in the cockpit seating recovering, snap-in carpet and maybe dash panels. I think a lot of buyers are going to be turned off by the condition of the cockpit and it is the first impression if someone sees it in person. The rest of the boat could be spotless but it's hard to overcome a bad first impression.

    Some buyers (like me) would be willing to get a good deal and do that kind of work themselves. But other buyers looking for a boat of this size may not be interested in a project, regardless of price. I wonder if you're in the size range here where there are fewer DIYers vs turn-key types? I have no clue really.

    My two cents only...this is a really great boat. I wish I could justify making a trip to VA to see it!

    Re: 1997 Sundancer 400 Diesel $89,000

    Thanks for the input. I agree with replacing the cockpit seating, whoever buys it will more than likely look hard at having that done. For us, we decided to hold on off on doing it since some of our guests are not the most careful folks and I do not mind them standing or laying out on them with sun screen on the way they are. If I were to replace them I would become very over protective. With a boat of this age I was hoping to find a buyer with your outlook that it would be best to get a good deal and then take the seats on as time allowed.

    Whatever you end up buying I highly recommend diesels, the reliability and fuel economy cannot be matched by gas boats. We have the fuel truck come to our house and fuel from the dock here, it is very convenient and the price is almost half what the local marina charges.
