I have to be honest, I have never understood the love for old Avon sibs.I understand they are very well put together and made of Hypalon so they last for ever but apart from that ??
We had a Zodiac Z31 in the early 80's, which was 'upgraded' to a Avon 3m sportsboat, we all felt the Avon was actually a step backwards, being so well made it was heavier, but the tubes were smaller (lots of wet bums) and it wasnt as rigid as the Zodiac.
Having said that, people have some stunning old Avons on the forum, that look like they have just come out of the show room.
Back to the OP's question, yep its a generic Chinese sib, no better or worse than any other. Price seems very good for a 3.2m aluminium floor but my biggest concern like above is warranty issuesand its also going to have a limited resale value.
If I had £500 to spend on an air floor sib, my money would go into a used brand name boat like Two very nice SIB's (Zodiac 340 + Suzumar 360) and an Indespension trailer for sale
I have no connection or personal experience of this, but it looks a really nice, well cared for boat.
