I bought my RIB about a month ago. Apart from a few niggles most of which are sorted now (or due to be this week!) I like to think I got a pretty good deal.
I was wondering (mainly out of interest...but also in case I get more serious and fancy upgrading over the next few years
) what the general consensus on value would be. i.e what would you pay?
It's a Valiant V-520, I can't be sure but I think she was built around the year 2000. Very good nick, no chips on the hull and the tubes (I believe to be original) are flawless (a little dirty but I'm cleaning them up)
There are a few hairline cracks around the edges of the jockey seats.
The engine is a 60HP Mariner 2-stroke I believe to be from around 2000 also. I'm unsure of hours but it shows little use.
Garmin GPS (The small one, but new) VHF, nav lights on a-frame. Trailer is functional but probably only has a few seasons left before it's either replaced or has a major overhaul.
I think a lack of paperwork / knowledge from the original owner has gone some way to reduce the value but after having it all checked out everything certainly seems sound with it.
Any ideas? I don't want to say what I paid yet so I don't taint the result
