How do I find the value of an old boat?
- Hire a professional. Pay a surveyor or broker to tell you what your boat is worth.
- Use online calculators. If you have a common boat make and model, there are several sites you can use to look up used boat values.
- Do your own boat value calculation.
Can boats go up in value?
A new pleasure boat is unlikely to appreciate in value. Like an automobile or RV, a snowmobile or a motorcycle, a new boat begins to depreciate the moment you take ownership.
What is the best site to find a used boat?
Searching used boat websites like YachtWorld or BoatTrader is one of the easiest ways to view many boats, from all over the world, in a short period of time. It’s great for getting a sense of the market, understanding boat prices and valuations, and seeing what’s out there.
