The short answer is: there is no perfect answer, but statistics do show that the best time to sell a boat is between mid-winter months to early summer (February to June) with spring usually bringing a slightly better price.
The bottom line is - Set your price right! Do your research, look online for similar boats to yours - Where is it located - Are there extras - Look at the engine hours - Does it come with a trailer.
Then compare all the data you have gathered and be honest with yourself and remember, what you owe on your boat has nothing to do with its retail value. A great way to ensure your boat is priced correctly is by using the Boatcrazy valuation tool. Positive first impressions are vital. Have your boat prepared to sell - Make sure the boat runs well - Clear off any personal items - and generally make it presentable.
Just as you would sell a car under the same circumstances, it is the same when you sell a boat. You must receive enough from the buyer to pay off your existing loan, otherwise, he won't be able to receive the title and you will be liable for any balance left unpaid.
As the name suggests, Facebook Marketplace has lots of things for sale, including boats, and as the listings are public, they can be seen by just about anyone in Marketplace and in Newsfeed, depending on their setting.
Because Marketplace is a free site to place your boat, it makes sense to list it, but because you are competing with other categories, it shouldn’t be your only source, advertising your boat in as many places as possible will help you to sell it quicker.
The best option is for a website that gives you all you need in one place. Boatcrazy not only gives you a listing on our site, we also include it onto Facebook Marketplace, giving you the maximum exposure to potential buyers.
If you want to sell your boat quickly and for the best price, then you should place your boat for sale online. As most boat shoppers browse before making a purchase, your boat will be seen by thousands of potential buyers.
Before you list your boat on a website, you need to ask yourself:
These valid questions will help you determine if a particular website is the right choice for your boat.
Many websites require you to have a broker who typically collects a commission after the sale, or the website doesn't have a “For sale by owner” section, all which could cost you more in the long run. Some websites have a high monthly fee for posting your boat for sale, at Boatcrazy, there is a one time low fee, and no charges for renewing your Ad. We also have thousands of boat buyers every week, looking to buy your boat, all you have to do is list it!
We also place your listing on Facebook Marketplace so you’ll have all the exposure needed reaching millions of buyers looking for boats. Plus, with no monthly fees or commissions, like other websites, you will sell your boat fast!
Like other websites, we don’t believe in “The higher price you pay, the more your listing gets exposure” We go by the value of your boat alone! There are no monthly fees and no commissions. You pay only once and your ad runs until your boat is sold.
It is also very simple to list your boat on Boatcrazy, and your Ad will be up in minutes. Your ad may contain unlimited information, up to 36 photos or videos and you can update your ad as often as you’d like. You can also auto publish your ad to the Facebook Marketplace. Our ads get amazing exposure to buyers who are looking to buy a boat.
Online boating marketplaces are an excellent way to get your boat in front of local buyers quickly. Other methods should not be overlooked, either, like placing a for sale sign on your boat or displaying it at public locations around your town. Flyers and newspaper advertising tends to be a little dated now.
Owners often have an emotional attachment to their boat, and sentimental value can stand in the way of the boat’s true market value. Making a true assessment of your boat's value takes honesty.
Do your research, look online for similar boats to yours, also:
To help you price your boat right, Boatcrazy has two great tools to help you. The Valuation Tool, helps you ensure your boat is priced correctly and a Boat History report, available when you list with us, gives you a complete history of your boat.
Knowing how to sell a boat is easy when you know the factors that buyers will judge your listing by. There are many factors; the quality of your photos, where the boat is located, the condition of the boat, the time of the year. But the most important factor is the price. Buyers want value for money, so the price of your vessel will always be the biggest selling influence!
