Advice on selling a Camper Nicholson 49

Looking for some advice. We bought a 49 camper Nicholson 10 years ago. It's been on the market for 5 years based in Greece and reduced a couple of times.

We have now moved it to England where we originally bought it from.

Attached details about the boat are In the link here. I'm wondering if we are asking too much or if anyone thinks we will get a sale soon from the UK market. The financial drain for this boat is half the price of our house mortgage (and we have not sailed on it for 6 years lol) so we would really like to get it sold pronto but I'm just wondering if everyone thinks there's not much market for a boat like this and therefore I should prepare myself for a longer wait until a sale.

Link attached. If the link is not allowed please just say and I can remove it.

Five years is a long time. Any reason why you can't move it out of Greece and try another market?

Sorry. I missed that part.

We're looking at a particular type of boat and are preparing to purchase it in Europe. We aren't as concerned about the location of the boat (within reason. We ruled out one for sale in Turkey.) as we are the price and condition.

It's my understanding that there has been an increase in buyers from outside Europe buying boats in Europe. Hopefully the move will help you.

Re: Advice on selling a Camper Nicholson 49

Seems like a fair price (and a pretty boat), but you're in a very thin market at that size, price and age. You may need to determine how much of a loss you're comfortable taking to get out from under it.

Re: Advice on selling a Camper Nicholson 49

Could you post the link again- it was removed. I think most buyers want to purchase in the country they will keep the boat (at least in your size range). I do not see the listing on Yacht World- that would open up your sales territory:

FYI:

High risk scam countries
Nigeria
Russia
Israel
Côte D'Ivoire and many other African countries

At TheYachtMarket® we take fraud very seriously indeed. We filter all e-mail messages from buyers to sellers that come through our system, checking for potential fraud. However, no security system can be 100% accurate, so your vigilance is also required, which is why we've written this guide to help you.

Here are a few pointers to help ensure you don't get scammed:

If the buyer sends you more money than you have agreed on, it is a scam. Do not proceed with the sale.
Do not send any money back to the buyer.
Remember the cheque you receive may not be legitimate.
Get as much contact information from the buyer as possible, including an address. A PO Box address is not good enough. Be very suspicious of anyone who is unwilling or delays in providing this information. Contact them by telephone, e-mail, post and await a reply to make sure the contact details are real.
Be extra cautious if the buyer is outside of your own country.
If the person mentions the purchase of the wrong item e.g. a car instead of a boat, it is probably a scam; many of these scammers have many scams on the go in different market areas and often get them mixed up.
Think about enlisting the services of an escrow agent.
Trust your gut instincts; if something seems too good to be true, or just seems wrong, it probably is.

In the beginning, there was only water...

If the link gets removed again, type in splendor solis camper into google and it's usually at the top of the search listing. Camper 49.

Donna, I know they don't have enough posts, but this seems legit.
