Apparently.....another reason is that they fetch good money.

Avon Searider 4 (SR4) with Yamaha 50Hp and Trailer - 5,995.00


Is this fair.....? Not been into this long enough to tell if this is a good deal or not.?

Not very fair, obviously condition and engine etc make a huge difference to prices but as an example the SR4 Delux back on page three was listed at 1600.
