Depending on the hull structure and fastenings that is probably a reasonable price for said boat in Australia.
One must remember that good timber boats bring a premium price here.
It is nothing for a spotted gum hulled sharpie/carvel well fitted and maintained to fetch around the $400,000.00 mark.
I too am a bit concerned with the above deck build considering the freeboard/hull height.
The Kelvin is an absolute cracker of an engine and I nearly installed one recently when I re engined Tidahapah with a 6LXB Gardner
By the way have you had a look at the Anchorline brokerage page, I think he has a converted crey boat listed
