I looked at this boat 4 or 5 years ago. Most novis are built rather crude and this one was no exception. It is not a more refined ( if there is such a thing) novi like a David Smith or Seapride. I forget exactly what it was that turned me off to the boat but Im sure it will be obvious to most on here if you go and look.

As far as the yearly maintenance, when I looked at it some years back it was the original old timer owner and it had not been in water in several years. It was stored uncovered and hadnt been touched in awhile.


Good boat for someone but IMO not worth $15K.

Totally agree with Jigger, not worth $15k. I would have asked $10-12k for it. Boat and motor are either at or approaching the ten year old mark...

Understand people gotta get their money back but there has to be depreciation!

I am familiar with David j smith boats only from when he had a website.
I am curious about seapride boats. What do you know about these guys? Size range?
Thanks

I am fairly certain my next door neighbor has a Seapride 23. If it is, the construction is absolutely crude. I mean, you can see the wooden stringers that attach the hull to deck joint! The fiberglass work is minimal.

Built like a brick don't get me wrong but a total workboat finish.
