    2003 Rodman 38 for 129k isnt especially cheap.
    Its not a very well known brand in the UK, not the best sub 40ft FB, not the most dynamic to drive, not the most nicely made.

    Dont get me wrong, good boats but that is top end for what they are worth. 2 years ago 38s were struggling to get north of 100k in spain where they are built and much more widely appreciated.
    130k is close to, if not at, early Phantom 40 money, and should certainly get you a nice last of the line Phantom 38.

    Not a bad boat, but the reason it hasnt sold is its too much money. Sunseeker have a 2007 R38 in Swnawick asking 125k, 2007 in Frnace for about the same. Boat showrooms are p!ssing into the wind asking 150k for their 2007.

    The market has firmed a bit but prices have not risen 30% for sure

    Not been on the market long at the wrong time of the year to sell? Only Rodman 38 on shafts in the UK at the moment?
    Having been on the market for this size\type\style of boat for the past 6 months, I think the price is not far out for the current market.

    There is nothing half so much worth doing, as simply messing about in boats.

    I think the price is high, no heating, aircon or passarelle etc.
    there are a few in Spain for @ 100K ish with more kit. Cost @ 6K to bring one back so use that info to haggle.
    might be worth a cheeky offer and see what they say.
    also pretty sure its 11.9m long. has a small keel and deep V so not a sports boat, more comfy cruiser with no surprises in the rough.

    OK, Ill dig up a list.

    The Rodman 38 would be on it by the way, but at 100k or less, not at 130k.

    As I said, not a bad boat by any means, just that particular one isnt a cheap one

    What is that boat doing up there, talk about out of its element , its an offshore cruiser, not an up to the next lock for lunch and then back to the marina boat. Will be great fun transiting locks, esp. titchy ones like Bray.
    A good example of the " Thames" price premium and pre sale "sea" trial will be bit problematic as well ?
    Thames boats also have a habit of suffering from not having vital things done which coastal boats would have done as matter of course, the worry of seized sea cocks leaking glands and impellors shredding is not quite so critical, when the worse that happens is gentle drift to the river bank.

    Quite agree. Every time we have been in the market for a boat optimism has triumphed over experience and we have travelled to view boats on the Thames in the hope that they will be okay. Nearly worked out this time round but ultimately didn’t.

    Three boats bought off the Thames last season, two might have had the odd blade still on the impellor and the bilge pumps did just about keep up with the water coming in via the stern tubes after the short cruise down to Teddington.
    In one case both water pumps seals were leaking like sieve and had to be repaired on the visitor moorings ovenight prior to exiting the lock.
    On Murvs boat it was interesting to find as we left Penton Hook Marina that only one flybridge throttle was connected to an actual engine.
    All on strictly maintained and fully serviced boats with no expence spared fussy owners of course.
    My feeling is boats on any non-tidal waterway really need to examined with a little extra care in the mechanical dept simply because of how little they are used and the low number of hours run ?
