Richard - oh no
IMHO, You will find that the price that he starts with is what the seller wants/thinks its worth etc and that is usually the problem area. Not listing to the broker in the first place. He gets paid whatever, thats his job and thats what you pay him for.

I think the probleam with RIBs is you tend to buy them with your heart and when you want to sell you have to use your head (reality)and thats when it hurts as i have always said the real value of some thing, is what some one will pay,not what its valued at. And as most of us are weekend ribers how do we know what our boats are worth.

Scorpion 7.5

That rib's been sold. It was moved from Bembridge to Lymington Boat Sales and sold pretty soon after.

Stewart Thornley runs Lymington Boat Sales, and seems like a top bloke. I've just taken delivery of an 8.5m Scorpion from Graham, and he's handled everything perfectly, including getting the boat delivered to Poole for shipping to Jersey. I'd definitely recommend him.

Hmmm... That not what the Rib X guy told me at the boat show but you can't always believe what salesmen say.
