Having said all that its a decent starter package that will all fit easily in the boot, if you only want to use it with 2 people on board. I dont know what the prices are near you, but that kit would sell for about £300 on ebay in the UK.
That is the cheapest package I have found so far. Because the wages are low here in Portugal, used stuff tends to be very valuable. Also people tend to be very attached to stuff and always think they are worth more than they actually are. What you buy for 300 quid in the uk, here costs 500-600 quid.
For example, classic motorbikes in the uk go for half or even a third of the price compared to here.
Still, I think I would go for the bigger Suzumar instead of the Quicksilver. Without the license and insurance I can't go more than 300 m from shore and the engine would tempt me to go further away. I recon I can row that much without a fuss, plus exercise is always good.
