Looking for a Ribeye and advice

Hello
I am new to buying my first Rib and could really do with some advice on the following.

I am looking for a S/H 2006+ Ribeye 785 with 250 Yamaha OB but with the right seating configuration. Searching the net I have found about 3 that could be worth looking at.
Is this normal (to find so few) or is there some were better to look ie magazine?

Any advice much appreciated.

Hi Maxg, just sent you a pm. Welcome to Ribnet. You will find Ribeye's are marmite to users and there are always strong views for a specific boat type/make here.

Yes there has always been a fair demand for second hand Ribeyes and they do hold their price reasonably. Look at Ribeye site there is a brokerage on there that I think had a few recently, also Wolf Rock sell quite a few second hand. Most up to date sales will generally be advertised via websites and added to mags later unless selling privately.
