Looking to sell my Avon Searider 5.4 advice please

Hi all, have just ordered a new bare hull with tubes to replace my ageing 5.4. My intention is to strip her bare and sell her on. My question really is are these still sought after? I have had her 10 years plus and had the idea to slowly rebuild her but a deal by a local rib shop is too good to pass up. I paid out a grand two years ago to have the deck replaced and a generic console fitted. The transom needs redoing but is it worth doing this if " projects" are what people are after?
Any ideas would be great as can't decide to rebuild/ tidy her for 500 (ie would you get that back plus.) or sell her as is. Any ideas on her value? Flooding hull and ok tubes but certainly showing her age
Cheers
Paul

RIBase
Still a huge demand for Avon 5.4 Seariders, a boat which pretty-much has a cult following. Plenty threads on here about rebuilds, including fitting new Avon tubes and accessories, etc. Depends how much work you're prepared to put in? Don't know if this helps - but there's a couple of decent Searider 5.4s here for prices (doesn't include trailer). Ribworld
