As in the title. We have been looking at various sports boats and decided on the Leader 8, diesel. There's no rush, we've only just sold ours so a period without the responsibility will be nice. If anyone is planning on selling one please dm me.

Only appears to be one the market in UK and that has been up for sale since August.
A good chance that the price might not be so optimistic in February or March, winter being good time to buy any sports boat for those with patience.
Do not under estimate the advantage of having no boat to sell.
Suspect others expressing interest will have to sell a boat not dissimilar to this and winter is not the best time.

If that boat is of any interest, would be talking to the broker , explaining your position, able and ready to buy but only have £XXXX.XXX to spend .
If at any point in the future the seller comes to the conclusion they are able to accept that figure , to give you a ring,
Assuming you have not already found something previously.
Brokers usually only allow free mooring on their pontoons for a limited time plus seller will be paying insurance and having to eventually pay mooring storage fees again.

It has been known when boat fails to sell they sometimes will appear at the other end of the country with a different broker.
Did track the progress of a particular Fairline with a interesting and very brave choice of Plaid upholstery.
It may have been sold and the new owner,unable to endure the interior put it back on the market suspiciously quickly.
The price increased as it came South.
