My mate got a 2008 for 65k. Very reasonable price. Out of my budget and I think most are slightly overpriced by the one specialist seller. Older Mavericks and gazelles are few and far between. there was a 28 in spain for about £15k but his pictures didnít match the advert so I didnít waste my time.

Several older ones have petrols. Find a nice one for 30k and Iíll be racing you to it.

Prices are driven by what people are prepared to pay. you have to pitch the price somewhere. Remember that these boats when new were around £200K for a 37 in mid 2000's , they are rare now as no longer made, Remember Jeff Hunton was a power boat racer so knew what he was building, They have great sea keeping and are still admired, by a lot of people.
I already own 1

I agree. Cracking boats. I will own one eventually. Scorpion prices are dictated by Lymington Marine sales. Come to sell one privately and you realise the harsh truth. I sold a rib for 10k less than those advertised.

Viewed a beautiful Hunton at hamble. 2years on the market. Some I think double that. I think itís age proportional.
