What's a prop worth?

I have a used bronze three blade fixed prop, no bends and no pits, 18 x 8, with the matching shaft, 1.25" SS x 6 feet, no corrosion. I have a buyer lined up but I have no idea what to ask. What would you think this combo is worth?

20-30k if the buyer is on a lonely desert island.

Delivered of course.

Who knows what is next.

Maybe call these guys and ask them. They do all our boatyard's prop repairs and are masters of the prop business. Kruger Propeller. Helpful people.

Re: What's a prop worth?

I just purchased a 14x10 2 blade bronze prop which the manufacturer cast and polished for us in just over a week for around AU$700 and said a 3 blade would have been around AU$850.A folding prop around AU$3300
I would ask 500 for the lot if in good 2nd hand condition.
good luck

Re: What's a prop worth?

As another data point, I just bought a used 17" prop from Minney's yacht surplus for $195.00 and a new 10' x 1.5" shaft, machined, for $1000.00.

I was quoted a tad under $500 for a new 16x9 RH 3 blade prop.
