Think it's new. They are PVC the hypalon are more. They look the same accept the PVC model has the quicksilver logo between the rubbing stake and hypalon model the logo above the rubbing stake.

When I was looking for one best price new with warranty was 895 at Evesham marine but they stopped making the 380 they do a 365 or 400 now.

sorry about that! Looked like new to me the few times I've seen it. The sea search ones were pretty good looking as well.

Hi Guys. I have literally just bought my first boat and also fulfilled a childhood holiday dream and bought a Quicksilver 380 HD. Its sun bleached and needs a bit of tlc but I wanted a project. I know its not the best out there but I've always admired them on holiday.

I got it for 200 which I'm hoping is a fair price. Anyone got any background on these or tips? I have had a quick look online and everything comes back to here really.

Cheers

Excellent! Glad I got it at a good price. And thanks for your response. I'm not sure of age or material and it has had a couple of repairs, I'm picking it up tomorrow and will try to gather info then, but basically I could do with finding out if I can re-paint the tubes and remove the what seem to be hacked off oar locks remnants.

Also engine wise what do people recommend given I'm on a budget of as little as possible. And load, how many people can I take out, I've read that they're very stable and can take up to 6?

Cheers
