Many thanks for your comments.

I advertised the RIB here six months ago. It is well spec'd and from a reputable builder.

Not really what you would term a ball of s**t*. It is also with two brokers.

In that time there has been zero response.

Not even a tyrekicker or an East European wanting to pay by money transfer!

Perhaps the spring will see a bit more movement in the market.

It seems that RIBs up to about 6.5m is shifting ok.

I was wondering how others were getting on with their sales.

Cheers

Eugene,

I have no idea how well or badly your RIB is priced - but worth bearing in mind that the EUR-GBP rate means that to a 'british' buyer your boat will seem 30% more expensive than a year ago; and to an 'irish' buyer british boats will seem 30% cheaper. I've certainly noticed quite a few boats priced in Euro's over the last year that made me say "how much". I'm not saying your boat IS overpriced, but there is no doubt that there will be a price which makes it more attractive to a wider audience.

What's your broker doing for his money?
Is it in your/him interests for it to be advertised with 2 brokers and elsewhere?

If you want to sell at this time of year, it must be keenly priced.

I put my Valiant on here at 1500 under what a broker said he would sell it at in the summer and got one contact through forum, but sold it locally through word of mouth, in less than a week.
