The honest answer to that question is no......no one is can tell you weather or not it's a good buy without seeing and assessing the boat properly.


On the face of it, if it's everything the seller says it is, then yes, that seems like a pretty fair price. However, that you're asking that question, kind of tells me that you you haven't spent enough time researching the market and looking at comparable boats.
Go look at it. Look for faults (you'll find them). It sounds like he's being a bit cagey about the trailer. Make sure it's sound & road legal and any faults with the boat can be put right with selling one of you're kidneys then decide for yourself it's a bargain.

I've got the same boat and very happy with it. That's the max size engine so it will have plenty of power.

I think 6500 sounds pretty good tbh, but as another said hard to say without seeing it.
