RIBase
Something like this is within budget, and although Avon boat is old, it's mint. Air cooled Yamaha should be easy to maintain. Only downside is its noisy. On plus side use remaining cash for life jackets for you and family.

the honwaves are sibs what doesn't your wife like the sound of mine loves ours think you may struggle to get a decent rib with your budget .the avon mentioned sounds good for the money and if boating doesn't end up being your thing you should be able to recoup your costs

RIBase
Stretch the budget.

Better to end up with something you want and will use, rather than compromise on quality. 600 is a big ask.

Found this at dealer via brokerage: West Wales Yamaha Marine : Outboards : Chandlery : Servicing : Boat Packages : Neyland : Pembrokeshire

Same package or similar privately: Yamaha 330S Inflatable Rib including Yamaha 15hp 2 stroke outboard engine RIBs and Inflatable Boats for sale in Orkney, Scotland :: Boats and Outboards

Hi you guys have been really helpful but unfortunately there is no room for extra funds budget has been stretched from 500 to 600 inc vat :-).
@spartacus The Yamaha Looks interesting but its just nearly 500 miles away but thanks.
