I agree. Its not exciting in any way shape or form?

Was just answering a post, thats all, its not a debate that needs restarting again from the last threads, so will leave it at that?

Im sorry if the comment has annoyed in you in any way.

With that in mind i think our 2006 6.3 Humber is at reasonable value, with a brand new engine only 5 hours, all electronics kept on board + the road trailer.?

Cheers

Our 6 M Humber Ocean Pro
The 115 Extra Longshaft fitted to our Humber is priced at nearly 9000 .
Fitted October 2008 with only 5 hour running in use. The electronics including
2008 Raymarine A65 Chart plotter and Compass Compass 2 VHF Radio
Large under deck tank tank. Avon rear Frame 500 . New four wheel trailer
and all the associated equipment to which you must add the labour for
fitting it out. Leaves the actual price of the hull at about 3000.
The Humber has. one of the best soft dry rides I know. That it only
being sold because the Cowes Rescue Rib was offered at what I think
was a very reasonable price , and had Radar and other equipment we
could not fit on a 6meter Humber. Have a look in Rib magazine at
prices for some ribs

Tiffy, doesn't matter what you paid for it, the only thing that matters is what someone will pay you for it. With a recession just starting to bite it isn't the time to be selling expensive ribs when folk are being laid off. Good time to buy though. Hopefully you bargained down the price for the Cowes ILB so that the losses on the humber are palatable.

Pete

Quite right Pete. While boats as a whole do hold their value over years, it is still the case that the moment you unwrap the electronics and hang an engine on a transom they drop in value as individual assets. They do not keep their individual value, but add to the appeal of the package.

As for sign writing and blue lights, sensible buyers will be put off (mind you silly buyers still have money). Take the fancy bits off but tell people about the excellent history that the boat has.

All signs will be removed, as will the blue lights before the boat is sold

Stick it on at 2/3 or less of the price you are asking, you might get some interest then.
The moment the engine is fitted and used, its value drops by around 4k.
As its a 'rescue rib' people see it as an abused item, not a cruising rib. a thing for kids to blast around in saving hamsters and the like, a social toy, not a tool. (I dont mean this IS the case, just the normal perception of the great unwashed), like a boyscout tent only used once for 17 treks to the brecon beacons by school outings.

Start it at a penny, then the true value comes through, depending on your funding, how much interest you are paying on the dosh to buy the ex lifeboat etc. sometimes its better to cut your losses. not being too negative, but a 17 year old in charge of a boat leads many to believe its just a toy for youngsters to blast around in. The market will find its own value.

Agreed, start at 9k and if it sells for 12k then thats the value in todays market recession et al.
