old "classic" boat prices

Let's all hope that the prices of classic boats mirror the huge recent price jump of classic cars. That would be great!!! Have you checked car prices recently? Insane.

Here are my classic boats. It's unlikely, but I sure hope they are eventually worth more than I have in them!

Well, classic boat prices are insane as well, but in a different way

Can't find anybody to buy my old Buick. And I'd say Classic car prices are down. Bought the Buick 15 years ago for $4500 and thought I got a good deal. Not even a nibble at $3600 now. I think e-bay and craig's list have flooded the market w old cars and boats. Ninety percent of the cars and boats listed would not be availible if it weren't for the internet.

Hey Eric. What type of old Buick do you have? I have a '67 Wildcat Convertible that I dearly love. Don't care if it's EVER worth anything!

Hey kraftee - Nice 67 Cat ya got there!

For three years I toured the U.S. in my very early 20's driving a 1966 Wildcat (after making good bucks building and owning a restaurant/tavern in Maine during my late teens). Since 1998 I've owned and been cruising locally in my 1967 Cat. Just had an expert race motor re-builder do complete original spec rebuild on her 430 cid 360 hp motor. at 125,250 miles blow-by suddenly became too much. Man, this rebuild he did has BIG Balls! LUV Dem Cats!! - Art

My 455 Centurian. Near Bellingham WA.

A sedan of course. Convertibles are for kids.

Well Manyboats, a Centurion isn't exactly a classic. Nice looking car though and would quickly sell at a Friday night car show, or on the side of the road with a sign. I would buy it if it was close by.

WOW!

Finally a collector will come for my 1956 14 ft FeatherCraft Ranger .

At $300 bucks I cant wait to meet another aluminum boat restorer that enjoys the tumblehome!

Sistership,

Thanks for the link FF. The tumblehome is extreme and serves no significant purpose but the whole boat is a beauty. Like the AlumaCraft I see the Ranger w a cast bow piece.

kraftee your Buick has a drop dead gorgeous clean side. Nice color too. The sweeping fender crease line is truly beautiful. The white interior contrasts very nicely. My upholstery isn't perfect but it's soft and comfortable.

pilothouse king ... so what's a "classic"?

Thanks Eric, Art, and PHK! In '67 my Dad was a Buick dealer and that summer the family took a two-week vacation in a brand new Wildcat convertible. To my 9-year-old eyes it was the coolest, most beautiful car I had ever seen. I still feel that way about it. Took me over 40 years to find just the right 'Cat. Eric, although convertibles may be for kids - it's like Dana Mecum says, "When the top goes down, the price goes up!"

I guess it would be those cars who's prices have recently gone insanely high?

kraftee-love the garage (or barn!)too, I just did mine and wanted the black and white design but the garage rehab guy talked me into expoxy. Looks great, wasn't cheap either, but that is what I really wanted. I have a AMG 55 convertible and my 15' Hobie Power Skiff w/90 hp Yamaha (owned since 1988) in mine. I have a hankering for a old Chevy Fleetline and can't believe how much people are asking for them now. The values on my car has fallen off a cliff but don't care owned it since new, it's fast and I love it. Just so strange that a VW Beetle or old Chevy brings more money than something of quality. Be like a Seiko being worth more than a Rolex, or in boating analogy, a old Carver being worth more than an Intrepid. Just odd-the values today.

It sure is. Completely stock except for dual exhaust and 2" lowering blocks in the rear. No rust, most of its life was spent in New Mexico!

Hey Bob, I recognize that moorage. Buchart Cove off of Todd Inlet. We moored there in July of 2009. That same boat in the background was moored there at that time. Long live classic boats.

Budd,

Absolutely right! The photo was from last summers cruise. Did you continue west to the end of Finlayson Arm and Goldstream Marina?
