eBay boat sale !!

I keep seeing lots of boats over the winter on eBay and this rib just seems to good to be true ! There are 3 Different types of engine in the photos, the seller has good feedback so just wondering if scammers are taking over accounts.
What do you think

No
this boat has been on sale on Ribnet for nearly a year before I put it on Ebay
There was no interest and its a genuine sale so hard luck if you missed out
a little faith and less scepticism

The ad on RIBnet expired 6 August 2017 following a 6 month run. Top speed was listed at 20kts in that ad. The upgrade to 40kts on the Ebay ad will have spurred the sale on a bit
