What price should I ask?

I had this posted in the North America forum but I thought I would throw it our to the rest of the community. I'm getting ready to sell my Achilles, but don't know what price to ask for it. Below is how the ad will read:

Boat - Achilles 14 foot Gray Hypalon material (model se-140). 5 air chambers with good valves (holds air well). Strong wood floor. LED navigational lights. Wood seat with velcro mounts. 4 side handles, 1 helmsman handle, 1 bow mounted large tow ring, 4 inner rings. Bow cover. Non-slip floor mat. Attached boat number plate. Always rinsed after each use and stored under cover. 4 pfds, 2 paddles boat cover, 12 volt pump, foot pump included.

Motor - 1982 Mariner 30 hp 2 stroke. Strong motor, just serviced. New fuel lines, filter and pump. New impeller. Spare prop. 2 metal 5 gallon fuel tanks. Always flushed with salt away after each use. Top speed of 30 mph on the Achilles. Engine stand included.

Trailer - 18 foot black, single axle trailer. Some rust. New tires.

Great set up for fishing, diving, surfing or just cruising. Can easily be towed behind larger boat to be used as a dingy. Boat and motor are in excellent condition for their age. Very low usage, stored for many years in its bag. The only reason I am selling is because I'm moving up to an 18 foot Achilles!

Any input would be great. Thanks.

The only recommendation I can make is to look at your local market, though boat dealers and marine classified ads to Gage what it might be worth. Then after deciding on a price and providing you don't need to sell too quickly, I would add something on top of what you came up with. You can always modify the price at a later date.
