You cannot buy that boat.
  1. You'll piss off your friends if you offer them less than they have in it
  2. It's not worth the sum of what they have invested
There is no win if you offer them what it's really worth. It's best to let strangers, not you, tell them that their going to lose their shirts on the upgrades that they made. Similar boats are not that hard to find and the buyer usually comes out ahead on a properly rebuilt/upgraded boat.
