That's the one. Literally round the corner from me. I am tempted and the wife likes it so that's a huge bonus�� How would I go about getting it surveyed? Also the engine seems quite old to me but I guess it's a Honda so it will be OK for a while yet.

Despite what the advertiser says, I would put serious money on this being a cheap and nasty Chinese import.
I base this on personal experience and knowledge of the person who supplied it as new. It's likely that the quality of the fitting out leaves much to be desired.
Trust me, the guy who was the public face of Piranha was a conman, a crook and a fraudster and knew next to nothing about what constituted a well fitted out and safe RIB.
If you would like professional advice, I'd advise you to give Nick Vass of Omega Yacht Services a call.

Think I might give it a wide berth after all! BTW took a trip down to the bottom of Hayling this afternoon to check out Piranha HQ. Looks like they made a swift exit.
