What is this worth please!!

Hi i am now thinking of parting with this project to fund a boat that i can use now! I planed to do the work required and get her afloat but only managed a few hours in the last 2 years

builder of the hull has produced a real masterpiece and it is made with Cedar Strip and Carbon/Kevlar and a finish of Brazilian Mahogany with a clear Awlgrip finish on the hull. Burma Teak decks. He claims that the hull is four times stronger than GRP from tests carried out by Southampton Uni.

there is a thread about this boat on hear from hensures when they tubed the hull it has not been in the water nor had a motor fitted i have the motor that the boat was built for a 2002 250hp efi yam ox66 v6 still brand new in the box and a console that matches the hull

The hull is LIGHTER than fibreglass, [and 4x stronger] (the actual hull when I turned it over - by hand - was only about 175 to 200 kilos that is around 3.5 to 4cwt in old English and I could pick up the bow with one hand easily above my head.) The whole boat with teak decks, ss/tank and bulkheads weighed approx 650 kilos (approx 13 cwt) not bad for 8m boat

also sitting on a brand new roller trailer has not been in the water

anyone got a clue what i should sell her for ??????

The million dollar question.

I'll be frank. Project boats appeal to buyers with the necessary skills and finance to complete them. We're already looking at a niche group of people.

You've had it for 2 years and have had it re-tubed, so at the very least try and recover what you paid for the retube, and the bare hull (not including remedial work). Buyers will ultimately question why you're walking away from the project part-way through.

The engine is interesting, but it's old school technology now, regardless of whether it's still new. At 2002, it's now 14 years old, and a real gas guzzler so be realistic as to what you'll accept.

It comes with a trailer which is new. Trailers don't lose money, so you can basically recover what you paid for it, give or take a few hundred pounds.

Is that with or without VAT?

I'd love it, but I could't put a price on it.

She looks like she's been full of water?
