Quicksilver setup valuation

Hi
Following on from a thread i started a few months ago i have made my mind up.
After 2 weeks in Cornwall (Pentewan Sands) im afraid to admit it but i have the urge for a bigger boat as in inboard engine type
So im looking at selling my Quicksilver HD430 setup.
Boat is a 2004 but was only used once upto when i purchased it last year.
Engine is a 30hp 2 stroke short shaft. 1991
Runs well serviced about 4 months ago inc impellor ,plugs oils ect and i have converted it to electric start.
Comes with steering console and remote set up.
Has seating for 5 people.
Pulls a ringo with my eldest daughter on with ease.
Also has a collapsable launch trailer i made myself fully galvenised.This was made by myself and dismantles as i use it with a touring caravan.Jockey wheel has now been replaced with a carvan heavy duty type.
As above i have just used this package in Cornwall for 2 weeks.
I never had to top up the air in any chambers and the engine ran perfect.
Any thoughts on what its worth or should i hit ebay
Thanks Pete

Everybody wants to collect as much money close to brand new as possible. But years and use depreciates things. How about starting 70%of actual price and check offers ?

I think 70% is optimistic, as far as the buyer is concerned its an 8yr old boat and 21 yr old engine. Back story about hardly used is nice but are largely marketing waffle.

Do agree with 70% being optimistic but Back story waffle happens to be true

Could have started at 50%, it's good to be always optimistic, anyway market and buyers will make a deal and owner will finally decide if the final offered price pleases him...

I'm sure in this case it is, but a wise buyer will assume that they are at least exaggerated, and base his valuation on things he can see/establish for himself, like the age, condition, service records etc.

Loco is ofcourse right the price is set by what the buyer is willing to pay (and you are willing to accept). The competition, the time of the year, the location of the boat, and the economy all have an impact on what a buyer might be willing to pay, and how much you need the cash will affect how much you need, so there is no clear cut value. It is quite an unusual boat with a console on a SIB which makes it a bit harder to guestimate.
