Assuming this is in a similar condition, and hopefully includes the kit, 6000 euro (4000 ish) seems reasonable to me but I wouldn't claim to be an expert.

Thanks Mike, I thought so that 4000 is reasonable.
By the way, that seems nice location you where "ribbing" on the picture

It's Emporiabrava in north east Spain. http://www.empuriaport.com/indgb.htm Awesome place - hoping to go out again this year but this time hope not to have to trailer the boat from Calais.

Awesome villa with mooring at the end of the garden. Highly recomended.
www.waterside2000.com Owners are also ribsters and very friendly and helpful.

Mike

Alrite mate, Ive got a Valiant 490. with a yamaha 4stroke 50. Good set up in my opinion. Not too stern heavy. These boats are very light up front so any bigger than a 50hp I would advise going 2stroke. Had it at 27nts with 5 up and water in the hull! Mines is a 2000 model 490 with a 1999 yamaha 50, trailer, a frame, gps, depth finder, nav lights, handheld vhf 3 life jackets and deck work lamp, bought in the summer for 5500. Look for newbee in scotland for pics of her.
