Hi my name is David winter and I am looking to buy a rib. Any good suggestions on what to get? my budget is 12,000 max. I am based near Swansea and want to be able to cruise, and fish with it. Been looking at x-pro 535 new package 12,000 and also Brig falcon 500L 2010 11,000. Anyone with experience on these ribs? Awaiting replies, thanks Dave Winter.

Hi Dave,
Totally agree you should get something real nice with that buget, plus you should look at higher prices with the idea of knocking a couple o grand off, It's a buyers market at the moment.
