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 $22,618 and the average current listing price of similar vessels on Boattrader.com and Yachtworld.com is $27,021. None of the comparable vessels are listed or sold on the West Coast. The vessel is in above average condition for its age and its electronics have been upgraded. The vessel came with a trailer and the value of the trailer has been factored into the appraisal. 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 and location of the vessel have been factored into our valuation of the vessel.
