For £23k(inc. VAT) you could have a ready to go 7m Solent Commercial with a 200 Etec.

Add slightly more for a 7.5m but it would still be in budget. Ill scan and post the brochure page in a minute.

I've had a ride out in the rib in these photo's and with a 140 suzuki 4/s it did 35 knots easily and rode very well in the F5-6 that was blowing in the Solent.

there are plenty of decent boats around for that money you could easily get a 7.5 meeter scorpion and they hold their nalue quite well (probably be more tahn a year old though

Ribcraft is anothe brans that truly holds itęs value.

Whiteshoes on this site is selling an excellent Ribtec 7.5 with a yammie 225 hp
itęs a lovely boat and he is really fussy about cleaning and maintaining it so itęs in excellent order
