What you have is a 23 year old boat dont try to church it up Dirt. Getting 9000 g for that thing is a pipe dream. Getting 3 is a stretch. I call bullshit on anyone in the know telling you otherwise or a "rep" trying to trade his rig unless it was a total pile of poopy.

I am a resilient Avon fan who knows they are made of angel secretions and even this is over the top to me.

Best of luck to you B-nev. The nice thing about this listing is that you'll have a really nice Avon to run next season.

So let's say it is the greatest hypalon ever made. It is still 23 years old. You could buy a similar sized Hyside, brand spanking new, for $3695. Say you only get 11.5 years out of your Hyside. In 2026 you still have the left over $5805 to buy a new boat.

Makes perfect sense to me.

Don't stop! This is getting good. Has this ever happened before? A "worst deals out there" victim getting on the thread to defend his "deal"??? And Restrac I thought angel secretions were only in Game of War!! Keep up the entertainment!!!

That particular angel has caused many secretions

I love Avons and have one but the boat is only worth what someone is willing to pay... 9500 is ridiculous you should have traded it and then sold the trade boat.

That is some jacked logic and I doubt a professional qouted him almost $10k for a 24 year old inflatable.

Very much in the WTF category. I could see asking $2000+ or so just for the rubber but not five times that much.

I hereby unbunch my panties and STFU as much out of stunned surprise as humility of being wrong about this being a typo. The data have come in and I'm just as astounded as anyone else. Call me a philistine, but I've only been boating 20 years and it's news to me that any make of Hypalon doubles in value from the time a kid is born until he's been serving lattes for a year after college. I don't have any idea how I missed that.

If this seller can find a buyer at that price, I will erect a shrine to PT Barnum and start buying rafts just to 303 and then hermetically seal them so I can get 5 times their "new" price for pay for my retirement.

Maybe there's a very well funded boating museum out there looking for pieces of history??

You have missed the opportunity of a lifetime, good sir. Avon's CEO must've put a bounty out for collector boats. Either that or you win the award for the best-executed Buzzard trolling job of the season. Best of luck to you selling your boat on the recreational market.
