    I got this White Canoe from a family member and am looking to sell it
    Any information would be helpful to get an accurate value on the boat.
    This boat has been completely restored.
    Length 188"
    Bean 38"
    Depth 10"

    The information at indicates that your canoe is from May of 1984. The comments at were written for valuing wooden canoes. Most of the principles will apply to yours although the price range will be much lower. This canoe appears to be listed at for $3990 which seems very optimistic. Most old fiberglass canoes sell for closer to $300. The original suggested retail price of this White Rib model canoe in 1985 was $895 as show in the price list attached below and has the catalog page. Feel free to reply here if you have any other questions. Good luck with the sale,

    Benson - Thanks for the reply, I actually had it listed for $900 and recently increased the price based on what someone on ebay said to me in regard to value, I was fishing there and obviously did not get any helpful information, so I greatly appreciate yours. I honestly just want someone to have it that can enjoy and use it...Thanks again, Jeanne

    That looks like a plastic boat, with decorative strips of wood veneer added for looks.
    Maybe somebody might pay $500 for it.
    As a W/C collector, I have no interest in it.
