So you're the one who outbid me!
Only joking. I was going to bid on it - it looked a nice example, however when it got past £8500 I didn't bother.
From what I have seen in my looking around, they are good boats, well made, and whilst I don't think you got a "bargain" - if the boat is as good as the owner says it was then you have probably had a pretty good buy there.
My only reason for not paying "top whack" for it was that I have been recommended the Duo-prop rather than the single prop - and I am holding out for a good boat, with injection, duo-prop and so on - or a complete bargain I can use for a year or two and then sell on for as close to or just above what we paid as possible...
From what I understand, quality is up with the Sea Ray's of the world not down with the Bayliners - and I would hope on a newish boat like that, everything should work and still be in good fettle.
Let us all know if it's as good as the seller said once you go to collect it!
Why can't we work 2 days a week and boat the other 5????
