Well I guess the range of prices as Easter and the early season start approaches are from 1250 for a shiny almost as-new looking mid-2000s last of the 2-strokes with a good history and maintained to date... down to 500 or so for tatty much earlier take a chance ones.

The one you picture looks tidy and if a decent runner from a genuine seller somewhere in between??

I'm viewing it hopefully tonight, if it's "as described" then it's coming home with me, for what I guess is a fairly good price (750)

Yep I think that's the right ball park for that motor if it's mechanically fairly sound.

That sounds very fair. Not sure where 9.8 Tohatsus' and 15 Merc/Mariner/Yam prices are now. They were rising over the last five years all the time and as David says (and he and I know from selling a few!) the best ones (mid/late 2000's) were making 1250 privately and the slightly older (early 2000's) not quite so clean last gen 2 stroke 15's were still worth best part of 1100. They will always be in demand and supply will not get any better and you know how supply/demand works.

>>>as David says (and he and I know from selling a few!)

Yes of all the SIB/15hp 2-stroke outfits I've owned over the last decade to try and find the perfect SIB for our use I think pretty well every one has done no worse than got its money back on resale.

If you buy immaculate/well serviced and keep them that way they are going to hold their money for many years.

So have you gone off the Excel or is the 15hp for something else?

The excel looks great, and good value too, however 4.3m and towing hitch was just over 17ft, too long for the garage I was hoping to use, would only just fit on my drive. Decided that the excel is still a sib (not rib) so just get another smaller boat without storage issues, need for towbar etc

As you say there's no perfect boat for every occasion

I was looking at the excel as I have 5 kids most weekends, obviously we can't all go out on a smaller boat at the same time..... I guess I need a compromise

Previously I owned a honwave t38 alu floor and a zodiac futura, both good fun

As much as I'd love an aerotec, I think it's gonna be a t32 that will fit in my boot (Audi a4 cab)

So it's looking like a t32 + mercy 15hp

Ive had both a T32 and an Aerotec, I actually think the Aerotec was more 'packable' and easier to handle, it also seemed to fit in the boot bettier.

I'd agree having had other SIBs both smaller and larger, the Aerotec is narrow and just seems to pack into a smaller package than others. Id also aim for a 3.4 minimum SIB, at this sister every inch counts
