For Sale - Valley Etain 17.7 - now sold

Post by GilesHudson »

Composite Valley Etain 17.7 for sale. It has been well cared for, stored inside and comes with compass. £1,300.

Some superficial scratches as you would expect but I have looked after it, paddled it with care and have not been in the habit of running it up or down beaches to land or launch.

It has a small self repaired chip near the bow and professionally reinforced floor in the heal area. The seat has been replaced under warranty.

I am based near Southampton.

Hi, can I ask how old the boat is, it looks in pretty good condition from your photos but are there any gelcoat star cracks which don’t show up in the photos?

Hi Petesim48, I have taken it to a local boat builder to have the small dink and general scratches tidied. I have someone who has indicated that they are coming down next week to pick it up. If it changes I will let you know. Best regards.

Boat is available. Since listing for sale I have had the small dink repaired professionally and at the same time for good measure they refurbed the hull.

Hi Giles, under the present circumstances I think it is probably best to put things on hold for the time being.
If you still have the kayak for sale when things settle down give me a nudge and I will likely still be interested, but feel free to sell it on if you can.
Thanks for keeping in touch, all the best, Peter.

Hi, yes the boat is still for sale. Superficial scratches on the deck remain but prior to the lock down I had the small dink on the nose professionally repaired and had them tidy up the bottom at the same time. No offers due to the improved state. Cheers. Giles.

Hi, the composite boat was built in 2012 but then not paddled from 2015 apart from a couple of times. It has been garage stored throughout its life.
