Daniel, not sure if you have more info but I have not heard anything bad about the older Narwhals - I have a 1994 5.2m and a local Power boat school has a 1990 (I think). For the money you are looking at the you are not likely to get to the newer (after the company split from Valliant) Narwhal's which I've heard have poor build quality (at least one member of the forum sadly found this out).
I know there are at least 2 other "older" Narwhal owners on here so they may also have some input.
I paid just over £5000 for my 5.2 with a 55 hp Suzuki and haven't regreted it once. Personally I like the look of the boat which is a bit less utilitarian than some of its competitors. I doubt it has quite the same sea-keeping qualities as some of its competitors but for what I have used it in it has been fine.
May be one to think about ????
If you want any more details give me a shout.
