Engine and also value..

Colour scheme on engine suggests it is about 1991 vintage so quite an old engine.. I have a 5.4m searider with a 90hp yam of 1992 vintage and only paid 2500 for it.. and runs very well.. so I think the humber is overpriced, but sometimes boats and engines get more than you think and sometimes less.

Hard to understand prices.

I've just sold a 1 owner 2004 Humber assault 5.3 package with brand new trailer and a 2004 Tohatsu 90hp TLDI low pressure 2 stroke (low emissions like the 4 strokes) for 5,500 where others which are 15 years older are fetching similar money!! Funny old Market.

In my very humble opinion, anything over 4k seems a lot of money to me, for an old boat and a very old engine. Have you taken a look on the boatsandoutboards website where you can search by category (ribs) and price (so it fits with your buget). Remember, if you have 5k to spend, start looking at boats for 6k, perhaps 6500 as it's a buyers market, not a sellers market - don't be afraid to put in a cheeky offer, you never know a sellers circumstances. Good Luck........
