How to value a raft to sell??

I too am looking to value an old raft.

Its a 12ft Maravia, previously owned by a float outfitter in Mo.

I patched it up pretty well, even used System 6 Urethane on the bottom of the tubes for reinforcement. I have used it once on the river for an easy float, supported my frame well!

But, I am unable to keep it due to moving and storage issues. So Im looking to sell it.

Problem is, tho she isn't the best looking boat, and still needs some love. A new hole reappeared due to a bad patch from the previous owners. I am considering fixing it, but may let it go for less and not fix it. I just don't know what an appropriate value for it would be.

Not looking to get rich, but regaining my investment would be nice!

Looking for any suggestions that will help me price it for sale please!?

We used to sell off 5 yr old commercially used 14' avons and Achilles back in the day for $1500-1700, with no leaks. I'll take a stab at this and sure I will get trounced, but I think that boat is worth about 4-500$ as it sits, assuming its a self bailer. If a wrap floor boat 2-250$. Patched and a self bailer, you might get $800. Just my two cents and nothing more. Sell it in the spring to get a better price.

Looks like this got moved off of the "Raft ID" thread while I was commenting. you can read my opinion over there.
