Well, remember that an auction defines the value of an item - it will go for as much as anyone's prepared to pay for it.
It's a 6year old 7.5m RIB from a reputable manufacturer, with a carburetted 2-stroke that's of modest power for the boat and will be a bit thirsty. Fuel tank's a decent size, but it won't have a great range with that old engine. £15-16k I reckon, as long as boat, engine and trailer are in very good condition. An A-frame could cost you the thick end of £500 and a full trailer service as much again (4-wheels). Simple steering problems can also similarly eat away large wads of cash.
