plus although it has a keel, its not a true RIB, as it doesnt have a rigid hull, still good tho for the money

Happy hunting!

How about:
I'd stay clear of that one-the engine is early 1970's and are hard to find parts now. You should be able to get a basic early 4m searider for 1200 if you look hard enough though-it's the frills that add the money to them.

I'd get a 4m over a 3m anyday even for solo use. The seakeeping is an awful lot better.
Need spares,consoles,consumables,hire,training or even a new boat?

I'm guessing you are just looking for something to blast around and out of Christchurch Harbour etc. In which case I would get this:

Don't know if it is still available though and there aren't too many about.
