The popular brand is Chris Cr@ft. I went to their site and hit build your own to see what this baby would set me back. The starting price is only $92,000 and change for the boat only. What I wanted was $102,000.


Okay, so let's say you buy this boat. You need a vehicle to pull it which is going to set you back at least $50,000, a boat trailer which is probably an easy $3000 or more. If you want to keep your boat at the lake you'll need to pay docking fees and winter storage plus fuel.

Of course you can go cheaper and buy a smaller used craft and keep it parked beside your garage and cover it for the winter. But this thread isn't about your typical weekend fisherman.

How Much Does A Boat Cost?

Average MSRPs Since The Year 2000

For the sake of this article, we used the NADA guide to track average MSRP (manufacturer suggested retail price) of some common boat types over the last 12 years. For this particular research, we tracked the MSRP of three specific types of boats. Here are the specs:

21′ to 24′ in length
Standard runabout type.
230-260 hp

We tracked 3 different brands and models: Chaparral 226si (or similar), Sea Ray 220 Sundeck (or similar), and a Cobalt 220 (or similar). These boats all shared similar qualities in power, length and appointments.
The Hard Data



First, you’ll notice, in the graph below, we started the research for boats manufactured in the year 2000, and tracked through 2012. The average in 2000 was just below $35,000 while the average in 2012 is just over $65,000. This represents a 80% increase in average MSRP over the last 12 years. With this trend, the average MSRP of a new boat in this category is steadily increasing at around 10% every two years.



How Much Does A Boat Cost?

For would-be boat owners, this is an alarming trend. Many started thinking about buying a boat years ago, and the longer one waits, the more expensive they get!

The Boat is Just the Beginning

The other consideration when pricing a new boat, is that the cost of the boat is just the beginning. Once you purchase a boat, you have to decide if you are going to keep the boat in a marina or store and tow the boat yourself. There are cost and time pros & cons to both scenarios. We have an article specifically about trailering vs storing your boat at a marina that you should check out. We will assume you are going to use a marina so that you and your family can get the most out of your brand new purchase. If you are using a marina, you can also count on the following fees:
Startup Costs

Startup Accessories: Anchor, lines, life jackets, toys, ropes, etc. $1,000 – $1,500
Training: Safety first! – expect to spend $250 – $300 for on-the-water training.
Boat Lift: If you buy a new fiberglass boat, you don’t want to skimp on the boat lift. Expect to pay $6,000 to $10,000 for the lift from your marina, installed. (Boat lifts dramatically prolong the life of your fiberglass-hulled boat. They are key in protecting your investment

Recurring Costs

Slip Rental: $1500 – $2500 per year, or more, depending on location and marina.
Insurance: $600 per year.
Maintenance: $1000 per year.
Cleaning: $400 – $500 per year
State Boating License: $50 – $75 per year, depending on state.

It All Adds up!

If you are keeping up with the math, a new boat with plus startup costs can easily run upwards of $75,000 up front. The annual recurring costs can run you an additional $4,000 – $6,000 per year depending on your location, and which services you use.

There’s no doubt about it, buying a new boat is an expensive proposition and is not suited for everyone.
