That looks very much like my old SR4.7 which was my new 4.7 when I bought it in 2003 . I regretted selling it and would be interested in buying it myself but I have a 4.7 which I'm just about to put back in the water(DEJA VOODOO).

It is rare and I think it can support that price if it is immaculate and the engine carries a service history. It's a buyers market at the moment so you can always make a cheeky offer 5.5 perhaps and see what happens.

BTW that sr4.7 was the best boat I've owned I regretted selling it and still do I don't think you will regret buying it if you do. As it's in Fareham I'll happily come and have a look at it if you need a second opinion

If you have biggish hands you will need to move the throttle out a bit as I used to catch my hand between the throttle and the steering wheel sometimes.

I am so gutted!!!

No, just rang him and it's sold! someone has put a deposit on it yesterday and collecting later today???? He said I was the first caller and then the phone has not stopped ringing with people telling him that it's really rare and worth more????

Shame really, but you win some and you lose some.

Still really gutted though!
