Hi, I am brand new to this site and I'm hoping to get some advice from you folks about selling my canoe.
About 15 years ago, I bought a brand new Bell Starfire DY from Midwest Mountaineer in Minneapolis. It is a great canoe and I had plans to really get into canoeing. Unfortunately, that never happened. I only used it twice in a Twins Cities lake. It has just been hanging in my garage for all these years now.
I would really like to find it a good home! I know that this is a highly desirable canoe, but I have no clue as to its value. It is in nearly new condition.
Thank you for any advice might have. I really appreciate it.
EDIT: It is 15', has three seats, and wood trim.

You'll need to say what layup you bought.|

... from Colden Canoe, made with carbon-kevlar and infusion technology. So that would be the upper bound price.

I am always amazed by how willing people are to help educate a newbie. I do appreciate it.
Yes, you can ask "best offer", rather |

BEAUTIFUL! I have to say, the red really looks better on that boat than the black gold. I have a friend with a Starfire the same color and one with a Wildfire just like it too. I wish I hadn't looked, because that makes it so much more tempting (LOL)!
That's called "canoe porn" right there.|
