"I find that 25% of the sellers understand what there boat is worth and the condition it’s in, 50% of the sellers are unrealistic thinking there boat is perfect and worth a premium over all other boats listed and 25% either are dishonest or suffering from an undiagnosed mental illness."

Perhaps true , but remember folks are purchasing a USED boat , and having expectations that it will be in the same /better condition than a new boat is very unrealistic.

For most folks the boat is a very emotional purchase (or sale).

When you step aboard , most times you will KNOW if its the boat for you, , pending survey.

That is THE truth!

There's an old thought pattern that THE boat choses you. There is truth in that too!
