The aloy one is a TRAWLER. It will be cheap to run, and it will fit anywhere in any pocket.
Re-sale value? I don't know in your neighborhood, I would buy it if I was looking for a boat. By the way, both boats in this thread are awesome trawlers. The first one is just too heavy displacement, thatís all.

Isn't FF talking about engine, rather than boat, displacement?

OOOPS , the fingers didn't reflect the mind.

3 hp per cubic inch would be fantastic ,
tho the engine might only be 100cc and need 12,000 rpm to make such power.

3 cubic inches per hp seems a comfortable long term diesel operating rating.

The alloy Colvin boat is a dandy but will be slow to sell. There's no place to be outside except the tiny aft deck (with no protection). The only place to sit with a view is one stool in the pilothouse (so a great boat for the singlehander). The oil range is expensive to run but the main engine is not......

That is a fat sailboat. Too bad they don't mention the info in the standing rigging. 28HP in a blow without some storm sails no thanks.

Kind of depends on what you are pricing.

The range will operate on 1 to 4 gal per day , heating and drying the vessel with NO ELECTRIC.

If one has to make enough electric to heat with electric or simply feed a truck Webasto or Espar ,
and its air fan or toe kick heaters , the range fuel consumption will be minor compared to the service bill, plus fuel .

The total cost over a heating season is the concern , for non dock queens.

I put my hand up as a "non dock queen".

It does indeed depend what you are pricing. In the US you have access to cheap oil, here we're looking at a minimum of $1.35 a litre, so on the lowest setting the oil range is $5.00 a day (no cooking). In the southern PNW there are roughly 6 weeks a year when the heat is off.....farther north it's 24/7/365......

But wood is available free on the beach, just go pick it up.

Another problem with the aluminum Colvin boat will be getting any heat in the aft cabin. A duct through the engine room with a computer fan will help, but it will always be chilly. Tri cabin boats don't work that well in some climates.
