Advice please

Two weeks ago I asked some questions about the 2nd hand Avon searider. next weekend I'll look at some other ribs.

- a Bombard explorer 580 with a 100 fourstroke Yamaha for about 14.000 euros (from first owner bought in 2000)
- a Narwhal WB 550 grey(?) with a 130 twostroke Yamaha for about 11.000 euros (from first owner bought in 2000)
- a Valiant 520 (2002) with a 80 twostroke Yamaha (1997) for about 12.000 euros.
- a Marshall 90 RT 1997 with a 75 twostroke Mercury 1997 for about 12.000 euros

Does somebody have advice about those boats? Which one to choose????

I only have experience of the Narwahl 550 and chances are it wasn't a WB (presumably WB means something like wide body??). It's a very capable boat...the one that I have used had a 75hp two stroke on the back and was capable of taking 4 divers plus kit. What it would do with 130 is another question. Might be slightly overpowered (if there's such a thing). I've been in it in rough weather also and it behaved well. Can't help you on the others I'm afraid.

Hope this helps.

Thanks Mosser.

It's good to hear that it's a good rib. I hope that somebody let me know how it is compared to the others.

Tomorrow I'll look at the 580 Bombard and monday at the 550 Narwhal.

Thanks for your advice Mosser and greetings,

Stephan
