Ribcraft 585 what sort of price..

Hi guys, I sold my SR4 late last year with a view to upgrading to something bigger this year, I ve been busy in a new job etc and the decent weather has arrived early so I need to get organised.
I ve been offered a 2003 Ribcraft 585, yellow tubes, yellow hull, 150 Optimax i ve known the boat from new, it needs a good clean but its in good condition, tubes are still bright, engine is having major service including new compressor... What do you reckon the right sort of price is for this minus the trailer.

Cheers,

When I said "." I meant what I said

- but then realised that the OP has enough experience in this world to work that out himself. If you know that a boat is a good 'un, you are party to the sure knowledge that it is worth more than a potential lemon. I'd pay a premium for a good boat that I knew the real detailed history of and not piss about over a few quid...
