This post might bite me in the ass, but here goes. Going to list my boat for sale next week. Production boat, Tahoe 700 with just about every option. I’m taking it to @namba860 to get it fully checked out and a complete service done, to make sure next owner has no worries. I bought the boat new, it is immaculate. Low hours. Just don’t use it enough to justify keeping it. It’s a great family boat. 6.2 merc, bravo drive, nice stereo, all of the options. I cannot find a used price to compare to anywhere. To replicate new would be 60k+. Not looking to get rich, but I don’t want to list too low. Will list here and other places, and am willing to give a deal to a RDP’er. No lien/ title for trailer in hand. What would the inmates list it for? Not trying to spam the lounge, mods move if necessary. Just want to get a ballpark value so it moves relatively quick...

Photos or a description would be helpful, I have no idea what a Tahoe 700 is.🤷‍♀️

I’m kind of assuming a midsized run about.

Friend of mine just sold one and got just about what he paid for it 20 years ago.😎

Boat shows as new. Will add more photos after it’s serviced and detailed. Garage kept, never left outside.

I’d like to see the removable sea deck style flooring. Is that marine matte?

What year model? The above mentioned 80% pricing and your $60K estimate for a 2021 model suggests a selling price of $48K.

Have you checked NADA Boat Guides for their estimated sale price? Did you check out Craigslist etc. in cities that have Bass Pro/Cabela's? It's more likely you'll find used examples in those markets.

Lots of these “feeler” posts these days.

My suggestion is list it for what you want to get and let the market tell you what its worth. Youre gonna get a million different prices by this type of “whats it worth” thread IMO.

It’s a 2018. Ive checked blue book, and searched online for comps. Most of the sub 50k new boats are V6/ alpha boats.

I have no idea what it’s called, came from the factory. I’ll grab some pictures when I take the cover off on Monday.

Just list it for $60k and lower the price incrementally until it sells, what do you have to lose? If you want to sell it quickly, list it for $30k and hope for a bidding war similar to how houses sell these days. It’s your boat and there are no rules dictation how you have to sell it.

Update: picking boat up tomorrow in Havasu around 11. If anyone is interested in seeing it let me know. Price will be mid 40’s. If you want a water test tomorrow, that’s fine too. Let me know by 11 tomorrow, lol. I have gone full 2FF. No turning back.

I would say that’s a 40k boat for 2018. Considering you can get a 2021 for around 48k with the v6. People buying these types of boats are not really focused on the V8.

Nice boat though. I got a Q6. Same size. Just older. GLWS!

Same boat today is 62k. So I think mid 40s is appropriate. Prices are crazy.
