Tom Averna, the marine surveyor who writes a column in 48 North (the sailing magazine published in Seattle WA), made special mention of the BCC in the April 2018 issue of 48 North.

You can read more about Tom Averna, the author, at: [orcasislandmarinesurveyors.com]

Tom Averna's comment about the BCC was:

"Some boats retain a higher value
over the years, in some cases increasing
in value. A Bristol Channel Cutter
(BCC) comes to mind as a boat that
will hold itís value longer than most 28í
boats of the same build year. They are
very well built boats, probably some of
the best built boats Iíve surveyed. But
thereís more to it than just being well
built. Boats like the BCC have a certain
mystique, thanks in part to the way
the marketing department
has developed the dream
of sailing over the horizon
on these salty little boats.
Bristol Chanel Cutters
do fluctuate in value
because some were owner
completed and some
were built by a company
in Canada. It all makes
a difference on what the
boats worth."

These numbers should help both sellers and buyers determine a BCC's value.
