My feeling is it's a buyers market at the moment . Due to economics of how well (or not) business is going in the UK and as Ian says some duff weather. (just look at the round IOW video on 24 March last year for a comparison).
There are lots of very very good value boats out there (Ians as a key example) . I still feel people aren't allowing for the 2 points above in the expectation of what they want to sell and buy at.
As a watcher/ potential buyer I'm still seeing a gulf between 'real world/actual' sales prices and the lack of willingness of some sellers to deal in the real world.
The fact heavy snow is forecast next week says a lot ...who wants to go boating in the snow ( except us RIBnobbers ) ?
