    Default Advice on selling

    Having now moved from power back to sail I am in the process of tidying up my Aquastar prior to selling. I recently fitted a new Panda generator and air-conditioning with the intention of taking the boat down to the med which for several reasons didn't happen. I am now faced with a question. Do I leave them on board when I sell or take them off and sell them separately? Both are as new and hardly used. My feeling is I will not get much more for the boat with them on and I would be better off selling separately. What does the forum think?

    I think it will make your boat more attractive to a wider audience. I know when looking at my next boat a.k.a. daydreaming a couple hours away, there are a couple things on my list of must have's and a genny is one. Will it increase the value of the boat by it's second hand value I cant say, but I can for a boat that came with a genny and is now bereft of one. That knocked my valuation back quite a bit even though I am completely self sufficient on solar now. ( I never hookup, no need whatsoever, my only drawback is hot water at anchorage and a diesel heated system will overcome that)

    I would agree added equipment doesn't really add value but may make it more attractive compared to the competition.

    Anything that makes the boat more attractive is worth leaving in place. It's a buyers market and the Aquastar will be more niche (in a good way) than the normal run of the mill offerings.
