Im considering buying a Novurania mx 450. Having zero expereince with inflatables, what do I need to look for? How many years do the tubes typically last under normal wear and tear? What is an average cost for tube replacement? And most importantly what is an average value for this year, make and model with a 55 hp Yamaha?

Hi 28sstony, you didn't mention a model year but I looked at http://www.nadaguides.com/ and they do list Novurania values for several years.

I used the NADA boat guides as well as maintenance records and appearance when I made my decision just last week! Hope this helps.

hi there

I actually had a Novamura for a while, I thought it was ok the build quality is interesting, as in different, but definitely OK. The one I had came with a lot of teak decking and inbuilt tanks and was a tender from a j class yacht originally. what does yours lok like
