Default Total cost per hour to own, operate, and finally sell a boat.

If a person goes out today and purchases a fully tricked out walleye rig the 20-22 foot length and uses it for 5 years; and in consideration of the expected numbers of hours of on the water time in the boat over the 5 years --- and considering any selling or trade in value of the rig at the end of the 5 years --- what is the total cost of ownership per hour of on the water time with the rig?

This includes purchase price, final selling price, price of everything put in the boat over the 5 years, sales tax, insurance, license, fuel cost, the cost of fuel and operating expense of the tow vehicle etc.


Can a person own such a rig as this - using it for the expected number of hours on the water and be able to use it for less than $200 per hour?

Just wondering if anyone has ever put a pen to paper to compute this total cost of ownership.

----------------------------------------
It absolutely makes no difference as to what is bought or sold or money spent - it is just a curiosity question that makes me wonder about the answer.

Take care

My answer is I don't care what it costs as long as I can afford it.

You have to post something to up the post count. He knows nobody cares and further more unless he can tell you the state of the economy in 5 years there is no right answer.

I'm curious that anyone would be curious about it. Unless fishing is what one does professionally, isn't buying such a boat pretty much by definition a luxury purchase rather than an economical one?

It’s almost 60 degrees outside where your at . Don’t you have better way to spend your time today ? Maybe grab a lawn chair and a beer and sit outside and count your hall earring swivels or bust the paint out of your jig eyes .
