## Boat Depreciation Calculator (Formula)

The Boat Depreciation Calculator calculates the depreciation percentage of a boat based on its original purchase price and current salvage value. The formula used in this calculator is:

**$D=(OP−SV)/OP∗100$**

Where:

- $D$ represents the depreciation percentage.
- $OP$ is the original purchase price of the boat.
- $SV$ stands for the current salvage value of the boat.

Here’s what each variable represents:

**Original Purchase Price (OP):**This is the initial amount paid to acquire the boat when it was new. It includes all associated costs, such as taxes, fees, and any additional equipment or upgrades.**Current Salvage Value (SV):**This is the estimated value of the boat in its current condition. It takes into account factors like wear and tear, age, and market conditions. The salvage value is typically lower than the original purchase price.**Depreciation Percentage (D):**This represents the percentage by which the boat’s value has decreased over time. It provides an indication of the loss in value since the boat was originally purchased.

The calculated depreciation percentage can be used for financial planning, insurance purposes, or determining the resale value of the boat. Keep in mind that depreciation is a natural part of any asset’s lifecycle, and factors like maintenance, market demand, and other external conditions can influence the actual depreciation rate.
