So I found this Supra launch for sale. It's a 99 with 250 hours on it and the guy wants 19,000 for it. I have a budget of 22,000. Is this a good deal or should I stay away? Also, could anyone tell me which boats hold their value better than others?

depending on how good the boat is I would say it is pretty good deal. I found an 00 that went for 23,000 and a few 01, 02's for around 26 +. I think supra's keep there value pretty well from what I have seen. As long as it has a towre and should have ballast if it was added from the factory. <BR> <BR>(Message edited by crghou on May 12, 2006)

Alan, <BR> Have you tried NADA? <BR> <BR><a href="http://www2.nadaguides.com/SectionHome.aspx?LI=1-28-0-5000-502-578-50250&amp;l=1&amp;w=24&amp;p=0&amp;f=5601" target="_blank">http://www2.nadaguides.com/SectionHome.aspx?LI=1-28-0-5000-502-578-50250&amp;l=1&amp;w=24&amp;p=0&amp;f=5601</a>

$19,000 seems pretty fair for a '99.

I tried NADA but I wasn't too sure about it. It doesn't ask for the number of hours or the condition of the interior/exterior. It gave me a low value of about 19,000 and a high value of around 26,000 for a 99 launch.
