Around £1200 - £1300, providing all is in decent working order.
The boat appears to be mid 1980s, so no spring chicken and the bucket seat layout isn't as desirable as open deck & jockey console.

Thanks DHD, I'm going to change it to centre console.
He's wanting £1325 for it so not a million miles away from what you said.
Engine runs fine has PTT and ES.

If you can re-fit the existing steering, then you should be able to convert it for around £300: console, seat cushion & backrest pad, stainless backrest frame, fixings, etc.
Don't rely on getting much cash back on the bucket seats, windscreen, 'bonnet', etc. Although, I seem to recall a recent post on here from someone looking for a couple of Searider bucket seats?

Already got the console and seat so will make it fit.

Thinking of leaving the dodger on the front?

Some do this. Can be a problem when climbing over the bow, though and it may restrict where you position the console. I suppose you could leave it initially and remove it later if it becomes a problem. The 'bonnet' will sag if/when you remove the 'dashboard'.

What console do you have?

Got a small Barnet Marine one.

A Zodiac I had had a piece of plastic bent and just wedged in, could the same be done with this?

It might just get cut off after all!

I have bought that EXACT setup last summer (post economy crash, mind you)
I paid 400£ for the boat (had a dent in the bow fiber) and 200£ for the Merc (had a toast cylinder 1)

So, I think 1300£ seems like a fair price, IF everything is up to specs..

1000ish

Payed 1200 last year for a SR4 with yam 30 and trailer, all in p.w.o
from ebay non the less.
The seats on that boat are extremely comfortable, i have had my g/f out in a f6 on an island crossing and although we spent more time in the air, the landings were not too rough on us.
boat prices are down a little but somwhere in around the 1k, best money you will ever spend !

Searider Seats

Hi Are the seats the back to back style or 4 individual seats?

I only require a pair for forward facing.

Cheers

Tufty

Think four individual seats back to back.

From the photo posted, it appears to have the original Avon back to back seats, which comprise 2 x one piece back-to-back units.
