Seems a great price and looks good..
What the downside?

" in excess of 60knts" with a 150 is questionable.

Looks like a bargain, but probably not in the UK & tubes look a bit tiered & 60Knots from a 6.5M with a 150hp sounds a bit optimistic!
But a lot of boat for the money!

Its 7.5m and moored in Spain (nice weekend away?)
On the broker site it is showing 18500 not Euro's...maybe not such a good deal?
With a good clean and the rib revive treatment i am sure it would come up a treat though!!

Sounds like Tony the sales manager has an interest in this boat.

that's quite an old boat, The Vmax looks older than a 50 hour engine and the boat claims to have new valves (it takes a long time for valves to need replacing, so I think you are looking at a boat that is oldish. Not that much of a problem with Scorps however ) I wouldn't value the engine at more than 3 k if its 5 years or so old.

that puts the rest of the boat at 15,500 without an engine. that's not a bargain. Trailer included ( min 1500 if not) are you keeping it in Spain or relocating it ( best part of another grand)

I'd take the 60 knots as being hopeful Best speed I ever got from a 6.5 with a 150on flat eater was 52 knots GPS. The extra Hull length and the Contra rotating props might get you an extra 8 knots but I'd be pleasantly surprised

at 18.5 Euros it was good deal
