Obviously if priced at 15k and all other similar boats are 20k, it's a different scenario.

However if you're looking at any depreciating asset with running costs, that is priced around others in the market, I stand by buying lower than asking price, say 5%. I would walk as I'd know there are others.

If it is 15% lower than the others, there's something wrong with it or they're in financial trouble, but I'd be very wary buying something priced so far off unless I knew them.

A bit late for caveats. You said:

Still didn't say I'd pay it! Just a different scenario if it's genuine and he's in real trouble, "14500 cash now, it's yours and the boats gone, deal?"

I get quite a few offers on vehicles with the comment: 'that's all it's worth to me'.

I have others that say they will be round with x amount even when I say they will be taking the money back with them because I won't be accepting that amount. Sometimes they even get quite offended.

People can be strange, and has been said sometimes you get on with a customer and can be more amicable. Others can be down right bloody arrogant, so much so that you don't even want to deal with them at any price!

I know a guy who recently rolled his boat back into the shed rather than sell it at the provisionally agreed price for this very reason.

Been a very good read - Thanks for all your input.

The reason why I asked this question. I am thinking of upgrading to a larger boat, and would like something like a 6.5 with a 175ish, and I was looking at 20-25k but now I have worked out my money a little better and I will only have 15-20k

Sell you ours for 40k. Though I may give you 5k cash back and 5% off if you have cash. Plus a further 150 if I like you.

I quite often tell no-shows and Messers not to bother calling again.
I'll be there in an hour does not mean I won't show up today , i will ignore your calls and then i will ring back a few days later expecting you to be civil to me.

Tossers.

In this case, they were just about at the point of counting out the readies, when the prospective buyer started to act the tw@t, so my pal told him the sale was off and asked him to leave.

I'd love to have been there.
