Default Thoughts on 21BR and 253

Guys (and gals)... I need some input on a thought. I currently have an 2008 21BR Pulsare with a 225... boat and motor has 165+- hours... Spotless and as near to perfect as an 11 yo boat can be. Ive been talking to a guy with a 1996 253 Convincor with a 502 Mag EFI with 260 hours... boat also appears to be as clean as a 23 yo boat can be. SO... the BIG QUESTION... we are considering a straight up trade. I want to get back into a deep VEE (do the the waters I run) and he is looking to downsize. Any thoughts on the trade? NADA may be a bit higher on mine, but I believe we are fairly even considering.

I think you are in the same ball park price wise. But there are always a lot of 253's for sale and not many 2100br's.
I'd want the 253 inspected if I was buying no matter how good it looks.
