Hard to say what it looks like - the seller is showing us anything but the boat!

In my experience, grotty boats are unloved boats. Even working fishing boats that get maintained properly tend to have a certain order to them.

Difficult to tell as there's just one picture of the boat and very little support information. The trailer could be older. It's overpriced too in my opinion. If budget is 4-5k also look at well cared for Zodiac Pro 7-man.

you cant tell by the pics you must see them in the flesh I found an avon 560 local to me in darlington on ebay looked good in the pics so I went to have a look and it was minging looked like a totally neglected old dive boat the seller said it was his mates who had owned it a month or so. it would have cleaned up but there was no keys with it the trailer I wouldn't have trusted for my 7 mile journey the 100hp yam had leaking trim seals I took the bung out of the transom and water was still pouring out as I left 25 mins later .last time I checked the bidding was up to 3.5 k but the seller told me they wouldn't take under 5k
