Personally I think all Marlins are under valued but regrettably that seems to be the case. I would keep it, drive it at every opportunity and enjoy the fruit of your labours. I'm on my fifth Marlin, having deviated a few times, but keep coming back to the marque. Think of the memory's it holds!!
I would tend to agree with Alan. Sportsters should be worth a lot more but it's a very niche market. It's not a tourer and it's not a seven. Nor is it a classic so doesn't appeal to those buyers. Realistically you should be getting about £12k tops. Your mpowered version narrows the market even more.
I'd wait until the pandemic is over before advertising it and then take it to a few shows to gauge interest.
Sorry if that is not what you wanted to hear.
