I made an almost identical post about a year ago and ended up buying a Ribeye 650 with a Yamaha 150hp engine.

I've been delighted with it, but would admit that it's a leisure only boat really - my two young kids and wife tend to go out in nice weather only and it's mostly Portsmouth to Cowes or Yarmouth - so not exactly adventurous! However, it suits us down to the sea bed.

Ribeyes seem to hold their value extremely well which is a consideration as you'll either love it (and want to upgrade) or hate it (and want to sell)!

There is a wealth of experience on here, and, of course, very varied opinions on what would suit.

Good luck!

Does it have to be a diesel?
Cookee is selling this which might suit you?

What will the RIB be used for? Most RIB's on the North East coast are more work boat like than sunbathing type.

Not particularly looking for diesel or an inboard, the boat i linked to has a v6 inboard petrol i think,
It will be mainly used for leisure and a small amount of cruising,but i want it to be able to take a bit of stick if it has to.

is it the boat compound just to the south of Bridlington ,,i have heard a few boaters that dont like it as you are not allowed to warm up the engine once in the water even for a few moments but have to set out and get beyond 100 meters of the beach straightaway owing to council regs ,

Hi Ashley, once you get your boat drop me a line if you fancy a run out. I trail my boat (in process of upgrading) and I live just a short distance from you in Garforth. Bridlington is only an hour away for me. I launched from there a couple of times last year and though it's expensive compared to using the slip at Whitby the staff and tractor drivers are very friendly and know their stuff and are always willing to help. Good luck and keep us posted on what you decide to buy.

Thanks Bam Bam
It looks like it maybe on hold at the moment we went to brid on tuesday to look at buying a static van and keeping it on south cliff,we were looking at maybe 15k for a van and 15k for a rib,but you cant get a van for that on south cliff and you cant put a used van on there
so we looked at a new van at 24k but when you take into account 1450 to site it 3 miles from were i would buy it from,and 2500 one off pitch fee, then 1715 site fees for the yr.
it adds up to 30k i cant justify spending that on a caravan and then a rib on top
the idea was the wife could have the family over and i could go out playing,
i may end up buying another sports cruiser and keeping it at York with the odd trip out to hull,we will have to see.
thanks for the offer though

ashley
