Threestokes Guide  

Each make is shown for a period of ten years of production with each model being listed individually. Current retail valuations are based on make, age, condition and proven demand. Estimated valuations are given in two columns - Retail and Trade - defined as
follows:-
Retail Valuation
For motors in exceptionally fine condition for their age, such motors should normally be covered by a guarantee after purchase. The valuation includes VAT at the current rate of 15% on the difference between purchase and selling price.
Trade Valuation
For the above motors is set at 30% below the Retail price. Dealers will no doubt calculate this value against the 'deal' they are working upon and the profit margin they wish to achieve.

All valuations are for outboards used predominately in fresh water. Valuations for outboards used in salt water can be anything from 5% - 10% lower, dependent upon condition.

It must be emphasised that no price is claimed by the Publishers as final or absolute. Values of outboard motors and PWC's will always depend upon the interaction of the condition of each machine and varying pressures upon the buyer and seller. Each Marine Dealer will always make their own assessment of both retail and trade-in prices, taking account of all variables including their risk in clearing the motor traded-in, the burden of the guarantee that they give, plus their own determination to remain profitable.

Valuation trends

The past season has seen dramatic changes in the UK marine trade, second hand values of outboards and PWC’s being badly affected in some sectors of the market. The poor summer weather, along with the declining economy, have seen second hand sales drop significantly. Nonetheless there are areas of the market, including lower value and lower powered outboards, which have remained relatively stable according to the information dealers have fed back to us.

The coming season is likely to be depressed compared to a couple of seasons ago, though if good weather prevails during the crucial selling season, then it is quite possible that some parts of the marine trade, at least, will enjoy a more optimistic time. The other factor which will doubtless heavily affect matters is the cost of fuel and providing the current trend back to more acceptable levels prevails, then the marine trade might hope to maintain some stability in second hand sales.
