My suspicious mind.....

How many times do you find a "bargain" on "BoatsandOutboards" to find the premium rate (0700.....) number they give you, routes to a line that just rings out??
& you get no response from the email service.

Maybe I'm just getting cynical in my advancing years.....maybe it's just a coincidence....but then again.....

Thanks.

Your trailer will do fine and 20 seems like a fair price for it.

Apart from one brand new boat I bought about 20 years ago every boat Ive bought seems to of been to good to be true. Each of these have sold for more than I purchased them for by a considerable amount (around 15 boats in the last 15 yrs). Im almost a boat dealer!!!

When someone is in a hurry to sell for what ever reason then bargains can be had. I recently sold one of my boats which stayed on boatsales for 7 months, at first I had a heap of silly offers which if I had of been in a hurry to sell would of probably taken. By waiting for the right buyer I gained $7000 over my first offers.

My most recent boat was only 4 months old, a zodiac 550 pro tour with a new F70 yam 4 stroke (less than 40 hrs). With a heavy duty trailer I think I got a good deal at around 10000 quid (exchange rate) where they would normally cost around 15000 here.
