plastimo roller furling (drum only) 2 years old great nick

You will need to give the exact size of the winches to get an estimate on their value. Some 32 foot boats are underwinched so I can't guess what size they are... Have a look on e-bay 'completed auctions' for a similar sized winch and you might get some idea.

The furling drum is worth more to someone who happens to just want that particular model. Try finding out how much a new one is and then ask about half?

The sail is not worth very much - but try looking at the various 2nd hand sail websites and find something to compare it with. No more than a couple of hundred pounds would be my guess.

If you're not sure of the value of something eBay usually works a treat. It's a self correcting system in the sense that if you listed an item with a starting price of £10 and it was actually worth £120, you'll find that in 99% of situations it'll come out fairly close to that... Just watch Raymarine E120 displays... They always seem to go for £1200 - £1300 when listed in the auction format regardless of the starting price.
