I think the lack of response is due to a lack of knowledge.
Probably a generic Chinese import like, Europa, Prowave etc.
Most on here will recommend bying second hand.

Indeed, search here for loads of previous topics like this - stick with a second hand Zodiac, Honwave etc complete with engine from eBay - always loads of little used packages about.

A Google didn't find any info about C sport.
There are better out there.

This hasn't got an ally floor but is the same money as the c sport and i still under warranty.

Not sure about Honwave: I've now seen a couple with very brown sun-damaged fabric.
Stick with Avon, I reckon.

I think you will find on here people with avon's will say avon,, people with honwave will say honwave etc. go for a well known make and you will not go far wrong as there are no really bad ones at there and lots of good online sites selling them.
so I would check the prices of zodiac , avon , honwave as 3 good options.

To add a few other too - look at Quicksilver, Yamaha and Suzumar too (last two made by Zodiac or Quicksilver IIRC).

Check these searches regularly in the two main boat/dinghy catagories:

honwave, zodiac, yamaha, suzumar, quicksilver | eBay

honwave, zodiac, yamaha, suzumar, quicksilver | eBay

Awesome rig - engine alone is worth more than the starting price - illustrates the point nicely that if you buy the right second hand package you can save literally many thousands and always sell it on for much the same if you look after it...

Depends what you want it for Scallywag. Did you sell the big Avon with 35hp? Is the 3.2 to get on the water without needing a trailer... do you already have an outboard or will you be looking for one... 4hp for river or 10hp+ for sea... engine budget is crucial to this decision?

Easier to comment when we know what you want to do with it.
