Topic: Selling price of co 26's, :) or :(
While I have no intent(short term) to sell my co 26 I do like to keep an eye on the market. A kijiji search shows 1/2 a dozen boats 3000 - 12000$ several in the lower price range. A bit depressing or the opposite depending on your point of view, I guess. So what say you all, Do our boats have any practical monetary value from a selling stand point? There are plenty of people looking to sell it seems, are there people looking to buy?
When one considers that the cost of ownership for 2 to 3 seasons becomes equal to or higher than the selling price of an average older co26 it seems that the selling price becomes less important than eliminating the costs associated with the boat.
As I mentioned I am not in the market to move up in size but I do see a day coming where if the right co 32, alberg 29 or albin ballad were to come a long I might consider it. Problem being they don't come along all that often.
Conventional wisdom is to sell your current boat before buying the next one. Who wants the coat associated with storing/owning two boats in this used boat market. With that said I wonder sometimes if it might be better to buy, if the price was right, and fire sale the old boat. But is there anyone actually looking to get their hands on a co26?
Just curious on people's thoughts and experiences relative to the current boat market and our co 26's.
