There are a ton of 10-15+ year old Zodiac PVC/Strongan boats in the area. Unfortunately, most die due to rotted transoms or the floors falling off on the pre-2002ish glued floor boats.

I will give it to Brig ; They are very reasonably priced boats. But at the end of the day, you get what you pay for. I would much rather have an old Grand Raid, Futura Commando, or Achilles Sport Knight / Sport Utility over a newer Brig.
Dammed great no BS post there mate.

Cheers

Are you looking for new or used? If you can find a used zodiac FC-470 that is in good condition at a price is similar to a new Mark 3 futura, the FC-470 would be the better value.
