Too good to be true? Novurania 650 for $16K

Hello, I'm new here and in the market for a boat. I found this boat local to Toronto but it seems bizarrely inexpensive.

Does anyone have experiance with this brand or any idea why it would be priced like this?

21' Novurania 650 DL- 6 Cyl-190 HP | powerboats, motorboats | City of Toronto | Kijiji

Well if you can see the boat in person and talk to the person on the phone number they gave then go see it. Ask to see the paper work and verify it against their drivers license. If it is all good, pay them in cash and part ways with a handshake, and drive off with your new boat in tow

To some people it is not about the money and they don't care. If it is a good deal, you need to jump on it the same day.

There is an old saying about if it sounds to good to be true.......

That being said I'd follow peters advise if it is indeed local and you can see it and touch it.

As it turns out there's a curious story about engine problems and a complete engine swap. Not necessarily a big deal but the details are vague. I'm not buying until the spring anyway so I'll wait and see if she's still around.

Congratulations! It's good that someone scooped it up.
