I'd say that's a reasonable price. It sounds like the setup is targeted at brewpubs. In a packaging brewery you only need one bright per 6-8 fermenters, depending on product mix. If the packaging equipment can handle the throughput and you have the labor, you can turn a bright around twice a day.

4 x 7 bbl FVs would max out at maybe 900 bbl/year, tops.
Beer is like porn. You can buy it, but it's more fun to make your own.

One option, if you have an estimate of your fixed overhead, and a range of variable expenses, and a range of projected sales (like 600bbl, +/- 300bbl), you can run some simulations with Excel to see how likely it is you'll turn a profit. I made a spreadsheet like that for something else, but I can send you a copy as an example.
