What's it worth?

Anyone like to suggest what a 2001 Ribtec 725 Inboard Diesel (Mercury D-tronic) rib might be worth.

It has not been used for 6-7 years but it does run. Tubes can be inflated but at the moment they go down after a few days and are very dirty.

It would make a great project and might take relatively little to bring it up to scratch.

I have a chance to buy it but don't know what it might be worth.

Any thoughts?

Cheers

Steve

Depends if you are buying or selling!

Seriously, there are too many factors involved to price it like that, all values are determined by market demand - which includes things like seating configuration, visual appearance including inside engine bay, if all the tubes go down simultaneously (blown baffles), the drive leg, the HP of the engine (and thus expected speed. Is it commercial specced (and hours) or leisure specced? Trailer? Electronics, anchor ropes etc? Urgency / convenience of the seller to move it on (I'm guessing its someone who's had it in the dry stack and doesn't want to pay to renew, and who also won't want to pay brokerage fees etc...).

Diesel rib pricing in particular seems to be erratic. Interestingly I think at the "scruffy" end of the market prices have also fallen quite a bit in the last 5 yrs or so that I've been keeping my eye open.

IIRC one of your clients was selling a Humber Diesel 6.5 a wee while back for under 12k - is this one more or less desirable?
