Times have changed,

it seems to me. Maybe the credit problem, but I think people are a bit more discerning about how they spend. That's why I have been looking for a boat for so long - many good used boats I have considered are very close to the price of a new one, but without the warranties. Some time back, you coudn't get a Botnia Targa for love nor money, yesterday I found a dozen for sale, albeit some of them very expensive. However, five or six (including 31's) were price at around 60k.

I know people think their boats are worth more than they are, I did (perhaps because they are kept very well). The truth is, age has its toll, and unless you have a boat that everyone wants, you probably have to take it into account.
Take off the VAT (which is only on a new boat), and a % for each year. It might give you a figure you don't like, but....
There is (was) very good condition (it seems to me) Cougar R8 Sport for sale here, 2003 at 35950. A 2008 model is being sold by Cougar (NZ) for 40k euros (34,188). You figure it out.

We put our boat up for sale here on rib net a few months ago
looks of looker NO BIDDER
I agree with rupert its easy to think your boat is worth a certain amount
Truth is any iteam beit boat car or what ever is only worth what you can get for it
The true value of your assett is what some one will pay for it. that counts for me as well.
i would say that if the economy carries on being flat then second hand values should hardern a bit as if there are very few new boats being built and few people trading up then it will become a surply and demand situation
i hope.
another thing is fuel, for us a quick return trip to Alderney costs about 300 to 400

And you

have got a Scorpion, a great boat which should be more in demand than others. But, you are right, if fewer new boats are made, then the second-hand market might pick up.
However, 300 - 400 for a day out (is it a day, or a weekend?) is a fair whack. Perhaps I should follow Codprawn's dream and get a motorsailer!
