Send Andy135 a message. He has just bought himself a new boat and has his old one to sell. Can’t remember the name but it fits your requirements !
(Not sure on price though).

good luck, boats are in demand this year. i feel lucky to get mine just as lockdown was easing.

 

i always have an eye out, and the market is still pretty thin in your price range.

 

I listed my 15ft salcome flyer earlier in the year and i sold it in a couple of hours!

 

have barely seen any warriors or piscators listed this year

People are paying silly money for overpriced boats, dont know where their money is coming from.

think they will have a shock when prices go back to reality and their trying to sell.

Never mind , will keep looking.

It's definitely a seller's market, the brokers I'm talking say that they're turning them round in a week or less, an a year ago we're accepting offers up to 15% under, but now everything is going at asking price.

So if you've got a boat to sell, now is the time.

I'm looking at France and Spain, prices are definitely cheaper, and more available and bigger choice. Downside is getting the blighter to blighty.

The point I was trying to make is that for a newly-bought £6-7K angling boat, marina fees which would typically be over £3K, will be difficult for some to afford, given the likely financial difficulties over this winter period. If this is widespread, lots of boats will hit the market at the same sort of time, and hence prices will fall.

 

So yes, probably all marinas...

Most of the boats sold will have been well over priced,I cant see people selling their boats for less than they bought them for.

Most boats in the  £7/8 thousand range are on trailers and are on the drive. so marina fees wont apply.

I know nothing about ribs Mick, why an XS? The one your looking at is on eBay yes?
£13k once fitted out, unless you have an engine etc to do a self build.

This is more in your budget ?

Hi Neil ,Thats the one ,but on their website they have it at £14k. 
Thanks for showing Ebay listing, will have to find which is actual price.
Cheers Mick.

Mick,
If your looking at £14k boats, what was wrong with the predator of Andy’s?
Or is it that you just fancy a rib this time round ?
