Help Pricing a Used Canoe

Hi. Looks like I need to sell my 2 year old Northstar Polaris (same as Bell Northstar) in Starlite with aluminum rails. It is in excellent shape since I only used it for 8 days once a year. I was wondering what % of the purchase price would be fair. Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Looks similar to my Bell MorningStar that I bought on craigslist for $600. Older, although in really great shape. Does yours really weigh 38lbs? That's sweet.

Starting at 75% of purchase cost would give you some room and give the buyer enough of a discount from the price of new canoes, that it could work for both of you. If you don't need to sell it "right now" and don't mind having it over the winter, you'd make more money selling in the spring.
