? if a new auto looses half it's value out the showroom, then what about a boat. you've basically refitted it to new showroom condition, probably better, since it's now got all the bugs out. Value: New replacement / 2 = $? I don't know, gotta start somewhere , check the price of brand new they are quite high

Don't know what she's worth, but I do know that a labor of love must be used to see any kind of payback. Unless the boat was given to you or purchased for pennies on the dollar, it's tough to get the labor back. I hope you are only asking to get an idea of her value, and not walking away from her after all that work. Good luck with her either way. Nice looking rig!

Just looking to get an idea

I've had her for 9 years and she served me well

I know what I would ask if I was putting her up
I'm just curious as to what people with more
Knowledge in Downeast boats thought

While I've owned her for a while I never followed pricing , value and trends for
De boats

So the threads more out of curiosity than anything

All the labor was done professionally

Except for the 12 volt wiring that I did
All tinned marine boat cable , heat shrink ends and connectors
And any thing below decks was double heat shrink tube over
Heat shrunk connectors
All new panels are blue sea

Nice boat. I bet she's worth good money. Looks like turn key for a 1997. If you had more pictures it would help. New power helps out a lot.

im not sure I agree with the labor of love part

if the labor was right and done properly , and you don't over pay for it or over do it ( ie put so much in that its of no real interest to anyone but you)
why should the labour I put in or my shop puts in be worth any less than any other builder

labour of love only comes into play when you customize something so much that it only matters to yourself or you start with a platform that has no real value to start or only has sentimental value like grand dads old no name watch


what does a new 35 ft de with a 3 window deck house rigged similar run these days anyhow?

it's a place to start, thinking of my earlier post on auto comparison can't compare a good used boat to a used car, that's only good for 10-15 years . I built my boat in 89' it's worth more today than I put into it. there are a lot of variables. Bet that replacement cost was an eye opener, it was for me! good luck

Yes an eye opener
In price and in what they provide
Haulers
Bilge pumps
Ect
Looking at what they offered I'm closer to the 36 than the 34

And that's 228 and still missing a lot of what I've already got

I'm not looking to sell her but will be insuring her for
175 because it would cost me at least that to get one close
GOD forbid anything bad happened
