Selling our boat?

Post by jrohrbaugh » Thu Oct 03, 2019 12:32 pm

Thinking of selling our 350. What is a fair asking price.
One owner, kept at home, properly maintained.
Any input would be appreciated.

Sorry, for any rational info we would need a LOT more info:

What year model?


Gen set?

How old are electronics?

Want a quick sale or is this a "dear, it is for sale"-- and two years later still for sale?

Through broker or direct?

Details.2007 Catalina 350.
Have not listed yet. Trying to establish price.
One owner. About 1,800 hrs on Universal. Kept at our home.
Major items: A/C, Garmin, AIS, reworked instrument panel last year.
Damper plate, a couple of years ago. Shaft, coupler, PYI , cutlass bearing all replaced Feb this year. Also had wheel refurbished. Bottom paint at same haulout.
Why selling. We got involved in racing and other activities-(read grandkids) simply don't have the time to cruise anymore.
Thanks for any info you care to share...

I'm on the west coast and bought my 2006 350 2 years ago, which is similarly equipped to yours, minus the AC. The three 350's I was considering were all 2005 or 2006. The boat in AVERAGE condition was around 110K ask. The one that was in VERY GOOD condition with all new canvas and sails was asking 125K and sold for 115K after several months (they got a bit desperate at the end as they needed to leave the country). The one I bought was in nearly MINT condition, and had a brand new 10K hard top dodger with polycarb class on it (super sweet), new electronics and radar, and a meticulous maintenance record. It was used by an old, single, always-traveling executive type guy who basically did a lot of day sailing when he had the time, so the boat looked like it was hardly ever used, virtually no signs of wear inside because he was hardly inside it (it actually sat unused as a trade-in from 2008-2011). The motor had about 800 hours on it with a new damper plate, which was a major selling point for me (others had 1,500 & 2,200 hours), along with the nice new dodger. He asked 130k, and I couldn't get him off that price. I had just gotten full price on my 34 and was about to be boatless, I was tired of looking for 350 (there were only 3), and so I paid full price for my 350. A more reasonable sale price was probably 123-125K. Availability and comps in your area will obviously play a role for you and you'll need to price accordingly. In my case there were only 3 to chose from, and the seller and his broker knew it, and they knew they had the best one available.

We did decided to sell SV Soixante. Listed with Massey Yacht Sales.
As we offloaded our personal items a few tears shed.
What a wonderful cruising boat she has been.
Also this forum has been entertaining and informative as we untook repair and replacements over the years.
We hope to transition into a smaller boat. We are considering a Pearson 33 or an older Catalina 36.
Thanks to all of you.

We did decide to list out boat. It's listed with Massey. On Yacht World 12184-3597789. Asking $121,900. See numerous pictures.
She is docked at our home in Jacksonville.
Also, let me thank all of you on the forum. Your advice and help over the years has been remarkable. It has allowed us to keep our S/V Soixante in Bristol condition and get ahead of many issues that could have caused problems.
Thank you all!
