How much did you pay for your New Hobie 16 and what year was it.
I've been told someone was quoted $9,000, sounds way high to me.
I think I paid around $7,000 for a new 2002

I found some prices on the internet. I'm sure you should take off about 10% after hagling.

Hi Tempo Sails and Ski in MInniapolis,MN,were giving special deals to racers.I think it was $6900 for a 2004.
Is a new boat a " must" or "just nice to have" ,to compete at nationals level

I'd say a new boat is mostly nice to have.
I know when I bought a new boat it was because I wanted new sails and a new tramp and when I started adding up the cost it wasn't going to be much more for a whole new boat.

My '98 (bought new from Boatworks in SYR) was $6,500, fully tricked out (racer rudders, trapeze systems, Harken mainsheet system). This stuff is standard on the new boats now.

I've recently heard (from Matt Miller) that the suggested retail price of a Hobie 16 SE (white sails) is about $8,300.

Just to let you know, we do not allow ads for boats on the Forums and do have a great Classified Ads Page that really gets results.., and for only $10 for 25 words, where it is on the site h ere (getting 3 Milliion his per month) and will also be in the hard cover monthly magazine.

If it is an ad, I will have to remove it.
Thanks for understanding,
Rick

Rick, your "Decent Sailor" title cracks me up. I finished your book recently and will have to re-read it when spring comes along. Be sure to alert us if one of your sailing seminars comes to west TX in the next 2-3 years!

Yo! My above post was not an ad - that's what I paid in 1984. Boat long gone now. Well actuall in the fleet but not racing. Sorry if you thought it was an ad.

I was just playing along. You know - What I paid and when.

Merry Christmas.
