you are not the only one confused Stu.

Luke you have had some offers - implies you are selling
what is the lowest you can go - implies you are buying?

If you have had some offers, then unless you believe they are time wasters or not representative of the market then they have told you what the market is willing to offer for your boat.

Now bearing in mind that your boat is devaluing the longer you keep it/older it gets, (lets say for the sake of argument 50 a month) and its probably costing you money to keep it somewhere, insure it etc (lets say another 50 a month). The question you need to ask then is will you be able to find someone willing to offer more than 300 higher than your best offer in 3 months time?

Especially considering the widely reported economic downturn.

Without a trailer I would have thought 6-7k would be more like it for a 6.6m rib and an engine that runs. Okay the country is in trouble, but there is a huge difference between finding 6k to fund a rib and 25k for a new one for ordinary folk. Certainly wouldn't want to be trying to sell a 25k rib at the moment.

To be honest I'd have thought lower-a gas guzzling 12 year old carbed 140 Stoatsu is worth very little and 5kish will see a fairly new 6-6.5m hull with toobs with the current bargains flying around.

Again though, can tell nothing without pics...

Have you advertised it yet? If not then get it out into the market place. If it's fully operational and in good nick then I might expect 6000 at the moment. If it's in need of some TLC and isn't able to go in the wet stuff then 4000 sound more like it. I would resist anything under this price however unless you really need to sell.

Have a look on Boats and Outboards for similar outfits and see what prices they are going for.

Strangley enough a Tohatsu 6.6m of the same age, but mine used to belong to the MD of Tohatsu so has a far superior build

Still not sure if he is buying or selling but if he is selling then someone could be getting a bargin.
