Rockpool Taran 18

Post by RickC » Tue Dec 12, 2017 12:23 pm

For sale - Taran 18. Brand-new. Standard construction. White deck and hull. Red seam, seat and cockpit rim. Totally plain, no glitter, no starfish or any other graphics. It's exactly as it came out of the factory. It is one of a matched pair, originally purchased to set up a sea racing challenge project for paddlers with disabilities. It has never been used. The other one has been sold this week to France.

I'll accept a sensible offer close to the full retail price. If you're in the market for a Taran you will know the RRP and the waiting time to get hold of one. Contact me via this forum. I am happy to help with delivery if my costs are covered.

Rick

Dakar was after an 18, sure he’ll be along soon.

I’m looking for a 16 and can’t afford new, or very close to new price.

30% off the RRP is not a sensible offer. In fact it's a little bit cheeky, given that I've put my own money into a project intended to help other paddlers. So don't waste your time with silly offers - it won't happen!

Cheers, Rick

Still available - please note this Taran is brand-new/never used. Feel free to check with Mike Webb at Rockpool Kayaks if you have any doubts about it's provenance.

Cheers, Rick

Since it was used for a good cause, I'm surprised you had to pay full price (and for two of them). Maybe Rockpool should buy it back off you - seems like the least they could do.

Anyway, good luck.

I think 2/3 of new cost is fair for a 2nd-hand boat in good condition. If someone wants to pay for a new boat at full price (or near full price) they can pay Rockpool for a new boat at full price with several advantages.

They won't be taking a chance that the kayak is what the seller says it is ie an as-new boat with no flaws or issues. I've no reason to believe it won't be but not everyone is honest.

If they buy new they also get the cover provided by any Rockpool guarantees.

They can choose their own colour scheme etc.

I'm afraid that's just the logic of the 2nd-hand market. 2/3 seems like a good deal for both parties. It could be much less if the item wasn't in demand.
