Never ever in your gaming life of WoWs, sell premium ship

Trust me, do not do it. Keep her in port.

Why would you possibly want to sell J.B. ?

She is definitely one of the better ships (at least for me).

I am curious for an answer !

Jean Bart (and other recently removed ships like Smolensk) is now a 'special unsellable' premium according to WG since it is no longer available for purchase. Not sure about the older removed premiums and whether they would let you sell them, but I will echo Obiphan above. NEVER sell a premium ship. Even if it's one you hate with all your being and will absolutely never play, since any premium you don't have in your port can drop from a santa crate or supercontainer. Any ship. So if you sell your most hated premium ship (say, Krispy Kreme), it can drop again in a future ship crate in place of another ship you may want more. Or as I say, the first ship container you get after you sell that premium you don't want would love to give it to you again.

In a moment of frustration sold Warspite.

5 losses in a row.

Last one, I was too slow to defend base and got capped out....

Have not regretted it....

......

Never ever sell a Jean Bart.

Do you know that you can get her back for credits at any time? All you need is just submit a ticket. 

She's slow but once you know her pros and cons and spec your captain skills accordingly - she's quite a beast

Well, at least it’s (slightly) better than that player that got a certain t4 Russian ship and wanted to sell it...

I will answer this, even though it's irrelevant. We all have our different playing styles and I cannot get on with this particular ship, i don't like the French line anyway, But this doesn't answer the question does it?

Good enough. Play style has a lot to do with liking a ship of course.

I do not get along with US BBs; hate ships where you have to use a calendar to time the arrival at the battle zone :-)

Both of them are special ships. In both of these cases I have yet to understand why would you want to sell them in the first place?

Correct me if I'm wrong: You can sell ships currently sold in the tech-tree for FXP (that have a value of 0 credits). You cannot sell ships not currently offered in the tech-tree for FXP whether premium (T9) or special (T10) (because they have no credit value). I'm guessing from the pattern of examples at https://na.wargaming.net/support/en/products/wows/article/27197/

I think this is a technical limitation and WG does not see the need to implement selling ships bought for FXP, coal, and steel (like foodprinter said "In both of these cases I have yet to understand why would you want to sell them in the first place?").

JB could be sold for 14,400,000 credits back then when it was still available in premium shop.

If a premium ship could be sold, the credit conversion rate is 1500 credits/doubloon and you'll get half of that.

 I didn’t know you could not sell just any old ship. I did sell one premium four years ago and bought her back a couple of years ago. Maybe something has changed since then. That was in the lean poor years in game for me. 

 And now it is much better in game. I can’t buy ships fast enough. If it were possible I would buy the Jean Bart, Salem and Black mentioned in this thread so far. I am a collector of ships now. Maybe someday we will be able to trade ships in game. You know with a once traded to another account the ship is permanently locked to the new account. Just day dreaming here,  anyways. I too would strongly suggest that anyone that wishes to sell premium/special ships find away to hold those ships if at all possible. :)

You mean I can't, in a moment of rage, sell ALL the ships in my port, come to the forum to rant about it, and then get banned in a profanity laced tirade?

I feel like this is limiting some end game content.
