Hi all .... New to RIBnet but not boats, Living in Turkey but returning to the UK early next year. Have a sportsboat at present but hoping to upgrade to RIB when I return although internet research suggests my 10K budget is a little restrictive for what I actually crave (5.5M + 90hp minimum, less than 10 years old)

Assuming I actually get sorted am also interested to know if there are any groups on South coast (Hayling to Brixham) that get together for coastal excursions etc

Any info/advice regarding above gratefully recieved

Thanks .... Adrian

Hi and welome to RIBnet Adrian,
I have a RIB for sale the tubes and engine are less than 10 year old but the hull is a 1996 model. if the hull where soda blasted back to original yellow gel coat or re-antifouled for marina use then it would look much younger,
bit larger than 5.5 but within your buget, and you'd have spare cash for modifications.
Either way good luck with your search.
