Hi everyone! My wife and I have been talking recently about our next boat. We've been looking at maybe upgrading from our current Tidewater 1910 to an Egret Moccasin 210 in the next couple of years. Well the wife caught wind of the price to build a new one and said it's too expensive, plus she would like the boat to fit in the garage at home (I hadn't thought about that and it would actually be really nice to hit up the lakes when the boat isn't at the in-laws beach house). I've been through the internet and can't seem to find any younger 189's for sale, everything seems to be 2009 or later, and most of them are 90's boats. The ones I can find (mainly on boat trader) are all listed really high too, with a 2009 being listed for $42,000! Now I know the used boat market has been going nuts the past year or so but is this actually a decent price to pay for an almost 10 year old boat? I have a build sheet from Frank for a new 189 and it barely crests $60K.
I have no problem waiting for the right boat to come along, I'm not even ready to upgrade yet. Since y'all are the Egret experts what kind of price should I be looking to pay for a 5ish (+ or - a few years) year old boat?
