Looking at buying a Pringle or Hobie 16 Is this one priced right?

Recommended Posts

I am new to forum, have had a some experince on Hobie16 in my youth. Looking for a fun Cat, now that there is some water in the dams at Toowoomba Qld This guy will take $2200 I think. What are they worth, though it is probably more than I have to spend? Advert below.

Prindle 16ft beach catamaran on registered trailer. Both in good condition. Includes harnesses and new spare tyre and tube. Trailer has been extended so can be towed by high top van. Sails have been recently refurbished. Can be sailed by 1,2 or 3 people. Kept under cover. Sails well lots of fun. Launched and retreived easily as well. Easy to tow and back.

I've spent $3500 on it so far so its priced to sell

Selling price $2400 Year 1985

Prindles are rare, sail well but impossible for 2nd hand parts, stick with a common cat. Older Hobies start at $1k up to $6-8 for new models,4.9 Taipan or 5 Nacra will cost more but much better boat for racing.

They are rare but Brisbane Cat Centres still services them. They are really nice to sail and very quick. They were popular in the 70's and 80's.

H16 are everywhere and still the same as they were 30 years ago.

I would think the Prindle is worth abou $2,200 at most.
