Would this be a good buy? Zodiac Fastroller 340

A Zodiac Fastroller 340, don't know whether that's a Cadet but I guess it is. about 450 pounds, made in 2009. Looks like mint condition in the pic, and the ad says so too. Freshest boat I've seen so far, even though there's a little kid driving it on the picture. So maybe a bit emasculating...

As I've mentioned before, I'm planning to go briefly onto the ocean (a bay) and mainly in strong current in a river. Have had "regular" boats up to 1,8 tons, but none that were fast and I'm all new to inflatables. Still wondering whether I need a RIB though...

If this Zodiac 340 really is a 2009 and mint condition for 450 it seems a very very good buy to me.

SIBs are fine in a fast current but does it produce a fair chop as the river meets sea... if so a RIB or GRP hull may suit you better??

I was to slow to decide and missed it... However, I do believe the 2009 thing wasn't right, as it looked more like... 2004 or earlier I hope it was some kind of lie, so that I don't have to beat myself up too much about it...
