Customer Question
I have a 2...

I have a 2 person glass and Wood boat manufacturer is great state group Inc based in GA. I've been searching for days but unable to even find another used or new one

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

The boat/dinghy has glass bottom and sides with wood in between as well as all wood front and rear. There are two oars that attach with metal brackets

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?

I'd say condition is good with no leaks

Hi,
I found the Boat would have been made from 1988-1999, the company : GREAT STATE GROUP, INC. was incorporated on Friday 7th October 1988, and closed on Sunday 4th July 1999

.
This is your answer, please read entirely.
.
The 2 Person Glass and Wood Boat, has an estimated value on the current market for an average of $3***-**-****.00 if sold at an auction it would sell for a little less, at around $1***-**-****.00 , if this were sold in a High End Shop in a larger city it would sell for $4000.00 and up depending on the condition. If I were selling it I would list it for $3500.00
.
Keep in mind that not all estimated values are obtained, your geographic area plays a big role in what prices can be obtained. If you plan on selling this I would list this for sell on the internet where it will have the largest shopping market. There are some great sites you can sell from.
.
You can sell on Etsy, which is a great place to sell from, you list Vintage Items, they can stay until they sell. Much like having a little store online. There is Offerup.com, Varagesale.com, Wanelo.com, www.decluttr.com, Bonanza.com, Ioffer.com and letgo.com. There is also Amazon Market Place, and of course Ebay. All of these sites get you a lot of World Wide exposure and bring the best traffic. They are all great! All sites can be sold from with pick up only option.
.
If you sell to a dealer, shop or resell shop you can expect to get about 30-40% of what it is worth since they have to resell the item.
.
Please ask any question you might have about your answer before rating this.
.
It was a pleasure working for you. I would be happy to help you with any items in the future.
.

I have a follow-up question. The boat actually has plexiglass and not actual Glass.
Hope much if any does this reflect the appraisal?
Also how did you arrive at the appraisal amount, where you able to find one for sale?
Antique Expert: Glenda B., Antiques Appraiser replied 2 months ago

It does not effect the value. Appraisers pay to access data bases who track sold values of items, we also pay to access large auction houses across the country to find sold values.

I also contacted some colleagues who work with this type item.
