Hi Astra,
I am definately no expert, but to me seems a bit expensive. Or at least, I wouldn't pay that, but my needs are probably different to yours.
Cheers,
Geoff

Hi,
It depends what your needs are I guess. An air floor is light, and will go better with a smaller engine, but I much prefer a solid floor.
And a zodiac boat I always think looks pretty, but I would, after my limited experiances, much rather have a hypalon boat (rather than a PVC).
But again this means a heavier setup, so really depends on what YOU need.
Are you after an inshore cruising outfit that you assemble on the beach, or a fishing setup?
Again, Iam no expert, just my opinions.
Cheers,
Geoff

RIBase
Seems reasonable enough price-wise, however condition is everything. A new Zodiac Cadet Fastroller Acti-V deck and Mercury 15hp will set you back 3,300.

15hp will be heavy but I can guarantee it will be scary-fast

I have this SIB and it flies with a 9.8!

I think he is being optimistic about 25knots

It does include a Bravo BST 12 HP Superturbo pump approx 120 plus other extras bow bag etc 1400 is not an unrealistic asking price maybe worth 1250/1300.

I guess it would only go in a clio with the back seat down.

Just noticed that 1400 is the starting price not the asking !!!!!!!!!

It will not be easy to carry single handed, mine is just about my limit for lugging around still with launching wheels you will not have to lug it far

The seller is being a bit free with the vigor of his description, imho.

If you work on the assumption that you should offer 50% of the new value as a starting point I think the price is ok, but as soon as it heads toward 1800 I would shy away.
