Even with a 50 Yam I'd still say its £750 + too much. Points of note I'd be pointing out to negotiate over : - no Aframe / lights/ No fixed radio , or plotter. I guess basic gauges - just revs ? When you could get revs , speed , depth etc . Has it got ski eyes fitted already ? Does it have a bilge pump of any kind as it will fill with water if you are skiing etc which is easier to get out by flicking a switch.
Is it rigged with cables on or beneath the deck - no biggy but neater below deck.
When was the battery fitted ? If its the original 2006 one I doubt it will last much longer and wil need changing in the next year ot two at a guess
It is as you say the basic outhill console . While I have never had a problem with them as they are designed for light leaisure use ( same as the boat) they are not overly 'solid'. The console with a screen and stainless surround make a much more usefull set up with more to hold on to when moving about the boat.
And while not a biggy the overall cover is useful , but to get the smaller ones for seats and console is handy as you can tow with them on and easier to put on if you ever leave the boat on the water etc .
Hope this helps , but feel free to PM me ...
