Latest Value

Post by Haris »

Hello friends
We received the following email. Would anyone like to comment?
------------------
Hi we are just beginning to think about selling our prelude with moaring rights at Hickling and we are wondering what the going value for a drop keel prelude (needing some TLC) - do you have any ideas - no trailer - sadly stolen a few years ago) kind regards Jane?

Hi Haris, a quick scan online shows a number of lift keel Preludes for sale.
Prices vary between £1250 to £2500, this variation would probably reflect the condition of each boat.
However all those I viewed come with trailer.

The lack of a trailer obviously devalues the package unless the seller can find someone who wants to sail from the Hickling mooring or can organise alternative transport.

Buying a replacement secondhand trailer will probably cost as much if not more than the boat - a new trailer certainly would.

Regards, Alistair.
