Ex RNLI mariner 50s

Hi does anyone know the best place to buy a used ex RNLI Mariner 50? Model number is MA 50M I think. The ones I have seen are all the 17.5" shaft models. Bill Highman has them for about 2200 plus 70 for delivery. Do they ever come up in long shaft?

The RNLI sell them in Batches of 20, most go to BHM.

The RNLI only use them on their D class SIB, so all the ex RNLI ones will be the same shaft length.
