What's it worth? Osprey eagle Project.

I have just bought this osprey eagle 5.6 from a chap near b'ham.It's an ebay boat and was £2000 but the seller dropped £300 after the sale due to a leaking trim hydraulic cylinder and a stuck steering cable.Have had to make two trips up so far as trailer bearings were no good and i had to go back and replace the hubs.Didn't want to risk towing it the 140 miles home.(around b'ham and through oxford to reading)Will have to return but cannot tilt engine as it seems stuck in down position.There's a small screw on the transom bracket to undo but appears stuck.Does anyone have any ideas on this and whether it is worth the trouble so far as i don't know if i paid too much and whether it's value is going to be a lot once everything has been sorted out.(It needs a good clean.new electrics/instruments-have these already from previous project and other odd jobs doing.Transom looks okay but will have to sort out some past bodges on fittings and wiring etc)Been told by osprey uk that it could be worth£4000 if refurbished.What does everyone think???

Looks like a bargin to me at 1700.

The Yamaha if its in good nick is worth that on its own.

Just need to get polishing on that hull and those tubes.

Get it working properly.

Use it.

Then pick away at the cosmetics as time and money permit.

Old Ospreys are great boats.

Had an XR18 for 6 years. Paid £5200 for it. Kept it tidy and sold it for £4000.
£200 per year for a safe, seaworthy, 5.6mtrs with 140hp....Bargain boating!

Thanks peterR,the bloke selling the boat said he didn't know what it was worth as he had got it to do up but didn't know anything about boats so as he was moving he wanted to sell it.Sorry for poor pics but they were taken by the seller.Will try to post better ones as job progresses.

I really liked the look of your osprey ,nugent.You did a fine job.I have read your posts on it's refurb and liked especially what you did to the console and would like to try something similar on mine.(When i eventually get it home!)

The yam is in good nick and has very little cosmetic damage although the steering arm could do with a clean up as it's steel and has suffered from rust.The only problem is the leaking ram for the trim/tilt,it won't lift the engine.Engine runs and is clean under hood.
I thought the bloke was pretty considerate to knock off another £300 because of the cable and the leaking tilt ram.Nice to know it's a bargain so will nip off to the ribshop for some tube cleaner and conditioner!

Yep, definitely a bargain.

However,
Get the trim motor and steering fixed before anything else. It may well cost you more than £300 to sort as you need to lift the engine to fix the problem.
