That's a shame. Did the seller give a reason for pulling out?
Well not really...

Essentially when I contacted him that morning he returned my email positivly where he said he lanched form etc. at the end of the post he put a sentence along the lines of THERE IS NO NEGOCIATION, which I thought slightly unreasonable, but hey i thought, its a great boat, i really want it but and im not planning to try to haggle him down to a ludicrous price but there are a couple of things around the edges that i would like to discuss with him

So i sent him an email back saying that in the spirit of openness i would like to discuss these points with you amongst them standard stuff like i will probably want you to have the engine serviced before buying it, maybe we could share the cost; i would like you to maybe have the cover altered because since you had it made you have added something to your a frame etc etc.

He then came back quite unpleasantly in my opinion and proceded to say that he had no intention whatsoever of discussing anything like this involving price and that he wished us well in finding a suitable craft. I sent an email asking why he had changed his mind so suddenly, and he then replied to sayt that he had decided to keep the boat.

We werent timewasters. I think he knew we were very interested. And i never ever said that i would refuse to pay full price.

It was such a perfect boat for us, but hey, ive got a better one in the pipeline now...

What spec Osprey was this? I've only seen older ones for sale recently and thought from the thread that you were looking for a relatively new boat?
