Hello from Liverpool/Conwy-Advise needed

Hi everyone on the forum & some good advise needed. Im currently looking for a used Rib setup & would appreciate some advise on this. I am not new to boating currently own a Jaguar 25 sail boat on lake Windemere. So mostly sailing apart from a seapro 360 with Mariner 15hp 4 stroke which we use as a tender & fun with kids.
We are shortly moving to Conwy & im looking to get a Rib & trailer so i can keep at home. My budget is between £5000-£7000 & the things im looking for are as listed:

1. 6 metre
2. Excellent sea keeping even in rough conditions
3. Enough power to have fun with kids weather permitting (pulling an inflateable)
4. Seats 4
5. Capable of long journey's? possibly I.O.M again weather permitting?

So as you can see not to much Ha Ha or is my budget inpractical for what i am trying to achieve?

Thanks in advance

RIBase
You will find a boat that meets your spec & within budget. BUT it will be showing its age & will be a thirsty beast.
