14ft Avon or Zodiac with a 30hp engine should do it, will fit in the back of a hatchback with the seats down. Should cost around 1000 for a decent one.

Hi Gaz,

There are SIBs that are well over 6 meters long and are rated for + 200 hp, so yes, you can tow 2 donuts with a SIB if it is big an powerful enough. For towing a single donut with a kid, you will probably need about 25 hp (with at least a 3.8 m long boat) for it to have any giddyup.
