Just to throw something else in the mix!
USED BOATS FOR SALE Devon Cornwall | Ash Marine
I'm also looking for a 6.5 - rebuild, second hand or new, not much about
Just for interest I have had a quote for a new Humber Destroyer 5.85m with console/seat, non feedback steering, enclosed raised anchor box, orange tubes/hull, and other standard bits for £7.5K - sooo tempting to buy new but a 6.5m one. Ribtec quote 10.5K for the same. I will try Osprey today but think they will be a lot more than Humber also. Tornado do cheap boats also, now made in China
Hulls not identical to the hulls of old but they do have a cancelled order 5.8m grey one (they call it black!) for 5.5K. The inner valve was damaged on delivery but is now repaired PU tubes on this one! You could stick a decent engine on it..!
I'm finding second hand prices very difficult to gauge! And they don't seem to depreciate much. A brand new 6.5m Destroyer for 8K, chuck in a 4-5K engine just out of warranty so you know it has been serviced and extra seating and gadgets brings you to 15K. There are some rough old Humber boats out there for 15K second hand, with little in "extras" on board!
Happy hunting...& chill!
