where are the used boats?

Recommended Posts

so, i finally decided to buy a 17.5 to 18.5 ft lund or princecraft walk through dual console for fishing big water. but, i am having a very hard time finding any used ones.

 

ive tried classifieds on forums, kijiji, autotrader, buysell, dealers, etc. is this just the worst time of year for buying a used boat or are people happy enough with these brands that they keep em forever?

 

any ideas?

I know it's quite the run for you but Thomas Marine is the largest Princecraft dealer there is and new or used they'll get you what you want. They have 5 outlets. They're now switching to a new format website so it's a little wonky but it'll give you some ideas.

yep if you can wait hang back and wait til the season is almost over. Many will be looking to upgrade to the next best thing and sell off so they don't have to store for the winter.
