Very pretty - but if it's not made in Llanelli it's not a proper Avon - they should rebadge them!!!

Very true - mine was 'Made' in Hungary, 'Assembled' in Spain yet still 'proudly' carries a Union Flag on the transom like they had something to do with it!

Like the look of the 850 though, but with a bit of 20/20 hindsight, surely there are more practical options on the market these days? I'm particularly thinking of Avon's insistance on virtually no sensible anchoring arrangements/equipment.

NIce boat however..

The trusty Searider 8.5metre is a proper Avon, more commercially orientated, but a monster of a boat.
