You've got to do a bit of digging if you're after a bargain

My other boat was also a very good deal. We have a huge boating community in Australia and with unemployment on the rise many people sell their boats extremely cheap. Boatsales.com alone have 17,000 boats online right now but many people rather sell through Gumtree or eBay for the lower fees.

Not sure how the Zodiac would compare to the UK prices but mine cost roughly 10000 quid for a 9 month old boat with 47 hours on the clock, heavy duty braked trailer,vhf, hds 8mk2 plus safety gear etc.

I was recently nearly caught out on a Ribeye 6 metre on B & O - was about to pull the trigger on sending payment when I noticed the link was boatsandoutboads.co.uk - just the R missing. They had sent several emails, photos, even gave me an address in wales for the owner. Don't know what made me notice the incorrect spelling but thank goodness didn't send any cash! Reported it to B & O but they didn't seem too interested.

It was advertised on Boats and Outboards in with all the usual adverts.

I responded as usual through the site and it was only on later emails that they put a link for payment without the r
