What are the pros and cons?
I suspect that on a 6m Ribeye, the bench seat model would have more appeal on the aftermarket in the UK? IMO, you're absolutely right to consider the question now - "the day you buy is the day you sell".
My own experience over the years with both jockeys and benches on the same boat is that the majority
of women* and old(er) passengers prefer benches (aka sofas
). Small kids have issues with jockeys and are easier managed on a bench. SO a family/leisure seat configuration seems to make the most sense for a family/leisure RIB, no?
*Don't start into me on this - it's not my opinion, just observation.
