Advice on Avon Searider 4m

Hi people,

I'm after a little bit of advice about my 4m Avon searider. It's a classic Avon Searider that has been in the family for years. It was made during the 80's and is in overall decent condition. It has a 40hp suzuki 2 stroke oil injection outboard that is probably early 90's. The boat was used last summer (2012) but does need some TLC. It needs a new teleflex steering cable and has a wiring issue with the power tilt (new wiring loop is best option). I was planning on fixing the boat this winter but with a growing family would like to get something bigger.

My question is how much is the boat worth in this condition?

Any info or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Hi, I could be interested. Would need to view, where in the Duchy are you?

Value would be dependant on many factors, trailer, tubes, hull, motor, steering etc, etc.

Post a pic. Seariders are going for decent money at the moment. The repairs you mention won't cost much.

Thanks for the quick responses, I'm in Polperro Cornwall. I'll get some photos of the rib uploaded but wont be able to for a week or 2 as I'm very busy in work and the boat is stored in my sisters garage. Just wondering where most ribs for sale are advertised?

Cheers again
