What's my RIB worth?

First off, I am aware this might not be the best place to post this, but since the boat isn't technically "for sale" yet I didn't want to post in the for sale forum.

Our diving club is currently thinking of selling our RIB however we really have no idea what it's worth could some kind members please help advise us, clearly a accurate price can't be established until the boat has been inspected but if you could post a price range that would be fantastic.
Here are the details of the boat that I can remember:
It's a Ribcraft boat, 6.4m. The rib is a little over two years old, however has seen very little use. She's fitted with a two seat console (jockey seats), has a custom build bottle rack. Stainless steel double A-frame. Steering is hydraulic. Mounted on the console there is; Radio, Chart plotter, Echosounder, NavTex.
Damage, tiny amount of cosmetic damage to the bow, slight scrape.

Engine is a 150 HP Marnier 2 stroke. The engine is older than the boat itself and has had very light use over the last 4-5 years.

Trailer, all I know about the trailer is that it has one, obviously for a boat of this size it is a breaked trailer.

If there's any other info that would be useful let me know and I can find it out.

Thanks to anyone in advance who is kind enough to help out here.

It'll be very hard for anyone to value without knowing the exact age of the engine.
Need spares,consoles,consumables,hire,training or even a new boat?

If you can hold fire until next spring it will fetch more then. I have been keeping an eye on B&O and there are some good boats on there at the moment for a lot less than they would normally fetch.

Sit tight is my advice.
