Argus pricing information APRIL Marine makes it easier to buy or sell your boat!
The value of a second-hand boat is calculated based on the new price, for a boat in good working condition, without any options, excluding any transaction fees (in the event of a part exchange) or repair costs.
In some cases, the value of the engine and any new or recently-replaced equipment should be added to the market price (dinghy, electronics, trailer, etc.) as well as any other options which increase the boat's value.
Please note: the boat's equipment can represent up to 30% of the total price.
In the sailing industry, manufacturing years begin on 1st September and end on 31st August the following year. For example, a boat built in October 2019 will have a 2020 manufacturing year, whereas a boat built in June 2019 will have a 2019 manufacturing year.
The valuation tool is updated in line with contributions from groups of maritime experts and sailing professionals who regularly analyse sales prices and transaction developments in the market.
