Avon Searider 5.4 for sale Newport RI

Hi- I've got a Searider 5.4 thats been sitting in my warehouse for the past 5 years. Its an ex navy one, from around 1990 never been anti fouled so you can see the hull is in good shape. transom is strong with no rot.

Tubes all hold air fine, I replaced the valves when I acquired it. and patched up a couple of annoying pin prick holes...( they were of the slow leak type that annoyingly kept giving back a little air at a time, but are now fully repaired....)

There is no engine and only the original rudimentary console...

My intent was to use it as my tender to my sailing boat. But have reverted to a smaller tender. ( easier for dinghy dock space....)

location Newport RI

Looking for an offer.....

5.4m

It looks great. How much were you after? It could be the photos, but is the console off centre?

The console is meant to be off centre so you can fit a casualty on the deck.

Marko. Americas a long way away. Plus you need an engine if you want to drive it back.
