Having been looking recently I would have thought it would fetch 15K + all day.
IMHO

There is a guide called 'Threestokes'. It's mainly for outboards but they do list a lot of popular boat prices for dealer reference.

Like Glasses guide, it's a very expensive little book if you've got to buy it.

17k is overpriced. Dealer forecourt yes but private seller no chance. - it's a bitch of a market at the moment, we're selling top end new stuff well and and boats up to about ten grand. Boats that fall in the 12 - 20 grand bracket just ain't happening.

weather isn't helping as it has been a slow start to the season plus there was a touch of caution about the house prices.

Ebay doesn`t help one bit either.

15 is the figure you need to ptch it up at.

I would have thought you would get advertise at £15 to sell at £14 at the end of the day if you want shot of it another £500 at £13.5, should seal a deal. It is 6 years plus old.
