Aaaah i'm glad you said that as we don't really want to go over 15 grand for a first timer; although Ballistic is winning I think more research is now needed into PVC.

My biggun definitely doesn't look like a lifeboat

For what it's worth, I suspect the Ballistic would do the job with more power. Not sure 75hp will be enough for 4+ people.

15k would get you a VERY nice Ribcraft 585.
Need spares,consoles,consumables,hire,training or even a new boat?
