What's it worth? And where to sell

Thought I would ask you guys how much you think it's worth, whats the best time of year and market place to sell (eBay, boat classifieds etc) I want to get rid of the whole lot so it's a complete outfit. Is it better to sell altogether or split it. To summarise:

Seapro 380hd aluminium floor, inflatable keel SIB, Mariner 30hp 2 stroke 2003 and 2014 Degraff bunked trailer. Loads of other gear Click image for larger version

most of which is nearly new- fuel tanks, tow toys, bridle, anchor, ropes, storage kit, life jackets. Wetsuits, icom handheld...the list goes on.

Any thoughts on price. Is it worth sticking it on eBay now or waiting till April?

I'd always say split - definitely sell the trailer and bits separately for the best price but the boat/engine might be worth trying as a package but again splitting the two usually gets better results.

An eBay classified (with 'best offer' option) with lots of large clear pics and a concise, well written description should see plenty of interest and you may well get people asking you for a split that way.

fuel tanks, tow toys, bridle, anchor, ropes, storage kit, life jackets. Wetsuits, icom handheld...the list goes on.

Definitely sell these alone as they don't add real value to the boat - all this lot will easily sell on here without all the eBay hassle/fees.

As Max says a split will 99% of the time give a significant uplift on the total.

When I buy outfits I would expect to be "given" every extra as in many cases they would just duplicate items I have or not suit my use.

Normally I would say the same of a trailer as I'm always looking at outfits with 15hp maximum and carry in the car so the trailer is just a nuisance I have to sell on.

If your outfit had a rougher trailer and a 15hp I'd say this time of year 1200-1500 is what I'd want to pay. But yours all looks exceptional and with a 30hp hard to value as it would be too large for many and put them off... often a 30hp will sell well under the price of a 15hp... but get the one chap like Gurnard for example who wants exactly that sort of outfit and it actually may fetch strong money as an outfit.

Here is a completed sale that may give an idea of outfit prices...

RIB ZODIAC - INFLATABLE BOAT- OUTBOARD YAMAHA 30HP | eBay

Similar outboard, rougher trailer and swings/roundabouts on a far more expensive when new but now older boat.

If I had to go for a gut feeling with the items split...

30hp - 700
SIB - 600
Trailer - 300
Extras - 100ish

In truth though it's not a great time of year but if storage is an issue I reckon the peak selling period isn't until May so it's a fair time to wait for best price.

For me Ebay is still the biggest marketplace... it sold my 1500 outfit easily a couple of months back.... of course it's free to try here first.

I think the trailer and kit is worth a bit more though? Depends on the kit of course but the Icom handheld may be 100 alone, all depends on age and model.

You wouldn't say that if you were buying though!

Cheers for all your comments and suggestions. That's helped me make my mind up - as storage isn't an issue will wait until May. Perhaps will try selling the boat, engine and trailer as one and other items separately. Give it a go and see what happens. It's a great rig and ideal for someone who wants a great all round boat. Think it's a lesson learnt - buying everything from new and separately is the worst way to get on the water - as spent about 4.5k and prob be lucky to get 2k back. Nice to have everything new and shiny but kick in the nuts when you want to sell. Still no one said it was a going to be a cheap hobby 😆

It's the luck of the draw really and a buyers market if it's what someone wants your in luck, the gurnard has a similar rig and loves it when you read his posts where he goes with the right planning even at & 4500 a boat like yours is cheep for the endless pleasure you can get from it good luck with the sale but give it some thought it's worth more that 2000 to you.

Cheers

Very true... is the reason for selling that you're giving up?

I put some ultra realistic prices in my contribution but I would try as an outfit first because if you found the person who specifically wanted a good size trailed SIB with large outboard in exceptional ready to go condition yours would make sense.
