If you don't want to pack it away and put it in the shed.
Buy a rib!! I have had both and trying to hold onto a sib at 30mph is great but a rib is better!!
You can buy a decent 4m rib for around 2k or buy a 6m for 8k!
I would advise maybe buying an older boat for the first year just to check it's for you. Once you have one you soon realise the things you want and don't want in design and fittings, so you know exactly what you want for the next one!
