|ACTUAL CASH VALUE||NEW REPLACEMENT VALUE||INVESTMENT|
|Removed for privacy|
The actual cash value is the value that our research approximates the selling price of this vessel should be, at the time and place of our inspection. Consideration is given to vessel’s condition, geographic location, published listings and guides, comparable sales and listings, and market conditions. The new replacement value is the cost of this or a similar, new vessel, comparably equipped. The investment is the reported investment including purchase price and significant upgrades. No values include maintenance costs, storage or tax. The most relevant data found while researching the value is included below. We primarily use market value analysis methodology for determination of value.
Explanation of value opinion: The average historical sale price of similar vessels on Soldboats.com is $19,810 and the average current listing price of similar vessels on Boattrader.com is $28,771. The vessel is in above average condition for its age and the electronics have been significantly upgraded. The sale of this vessel includes a galvanized steel trailer, which is not included in the value of the vessel. The trailer is valued at $3,500. There is currently a Covid-19 related demand and value spike and it is unclear as to how long this demand spike will last. This spike and the condition of the vessel have been factored into our valuation.

|These recommendations are the surveyor’s ideas and suggestions for addressing deficiencies with damaged or suspect components or systems found during survey or general improvements. The primary recommendations address safety items, structural issues, operational issues or deficiencies which the surveyor determines are of greater importance or more expense than secondary deficiencies. For instance, items that pose a risk to passenger safety or immediate property damage are listed under primary deficiencies and cosmetic concerns are addressed under secondary deficiencies. Most of the recommendations have been addressed in the comments and usually they are discussed at the time of the inspection.|
