    Default Boat Appraisal Suggestions

    who might a guy get to do a boat appraisal in Anchorage. Seems the Credit Union wants this done prior to loan approval. Any suggestions? thanks. Jeff

    I used Madar Marine when I went through CU1. He was excellant. I was in a time crunch as there was another buyer and the seller wouldn't hold the boat for me. He came down right away and got the appraisal to me that same day. I can't remember off hand how much I paid but he was substantially cheaper than anyone else I talked to. Super nice guy as well.

    Hope that helps. Good luck on the boat.

    Just a quick appraisal without seeing the condition and what extras.
    A boat decreases on average 3% a year. So you can go from there...

    A second vote for Mader Marine. You can get his number by asking the folks at Dewey's. They recommended him when I was looking to get a survey done.

    I used Rising Wind Marine Surveying, and he did a complete Marine Survey. Really nice guy, and SUPER THOUROUGH. I'd recommend him no problem, I'll use him again too.

    I found the thread that had his info in it. Here it is if you want to read the thread http://forums.outdoorsdirectory.com/...ighlight=madar.

    And here's his number 907-746-6667. He's located in Palmer and I'm pretty sure my Appraisal was $125.
