I have a 1982 H-18 and was thinking I might kick myself later if I sell it. Boat is in nice shape with solid hulls. What does the future look like as far a resale goes? Since the 18 is not made anymore will that drive the price higher or lower? It took me awhile to find this one so I am having a hard time trying to figure out what the hell to do. I don't have to sell it but I was approached with a good offer. HELP!!!
Anyone else out there in my situation?
I kicked myself after selling our '82. I didn't overpay for it last year and could have afforded to keep it and get another Hobie. I got caught up in the "they don't make them anymore and no one races them" thing. We're racing the 20 and the 16's the play boat, just as easily could have been the 18!
I haven't seen a significant change (up or down) in pricing this season and an older Hobie, in good shape, seems to hold its value.
I made a decent profit on my 18 if I charge nothing for my labor invested. I really like the 18.
What would you replace your '82 with? Another 18?
