I suppose all of us yachties believe that our boats are more valuable than what the market dictates. For example if a Crowther 32 cat was built in 1986 and valued at $300,000 including tax,

I guess the owner's accountant would apply an annual depreciation, if 10% was the figure, 17 years later the boat's book value might read $50,000.

All that said, multihulls in this era, do hold their value compared to monos. BUT they must come from a good stable and have been well looked after and maintained.

Richard to digress slightly what i really should do is wait another 12 months. Making a living in the stock markets Im hesitant to splurg more on a used boat. wont go into it but things may change rapidly again, nothing will be spared including yachts. But Im impatient :-) Usa and europe hit much harder by deppression hence much cheaper boats, Aus and asia have fared the best so no panic there.

What boat are you talking about? The Crowther 34?
In 1986 we went cruising for a few years. After 20 years and 50+ countries and several oceans, we are STILL "cruising for a few years".
