WANTED - Trailer for 5.3 Attaque

Hi,
i've just bought a 5.3m Humber Attaque with an excellent trailer. The problem is, is that the trailer is too wide to go down my alley way (not the rib though). So i'm going to have to sell the trailer and find a new one (more the other way about actually). The lot is currently waiting for me to pick it all up in Weymouth at the moment.

So I need a trailer that meets EU standards (for insurance reasons in France) suitable for a 5.3m deep-vee rib that is less than 2m wide. Anybody got one for sale ?

Thanks

Paul

Attaque any good?

pablo - Are you pleased with your boat? I am considering buying one but heard varying reviews on these forums. Is it a true deep vee and does it handle choppy weather well?

Thanks.

The Attaque is a good hull, excellent handling and a deep V but not made for some years. The current Ocean Pro is based on it.
If you are thinking new or newish then this will be the Assault, a completely different kettle of fish. This is a shallow V and handles OK but is pants compared to the Attaque, you don't want to be out in anything bar a flat calm in in, not because it can't handle a sea but the ride is shockingly hard due to the flatter hull.
