I'd generally prefer a visible than an invisible boat... but I can see it would be easy to tow and store...

Avon SE400DL.

Its the Avon version of the Zodiac Yachtline Delux range. Great tenders, but the hull is quite flat for serious ribbing.

I dont think they make them any more.

it is an avon adventure deluxe model, probably 4m.

you can get "normal" 4m adventures pretty easily.

edit-beaten to it above :-)

This would be ok on the Solent though? What kind of money do these go for with around a 30 on the back. 50 seems overkill.

I've used a couple of the Zodiac Yachtline versions (380 &420), they have a similar deck and identical hull to the Avon.

They are a really nice boat and for a pootle around the lakes or inshore in calm conditions they are great, smooth dry ride, comfortable seats and lots of storage. But, the moment it gets a bit rough, they loose their appeal. The bench seats are impossible to brace on, water starts coming over the bow and they slam for fun if you try and keep the speed up.

The hull is simply too flat, great for internal space, but terrible for handling waves.

Although there are lots of the Avon Adventure's around, the Delux versions are like hens teeth. You will probably have more success looking for a Zodiac version like

ZODIAC 420DL YACHTLINE / EVINRUDE 50HP ETEC RIB BOAT | eBay

Its nothing to do with me, but thats not a bad price.
