Anybody own an Avon adventure 560?

A friend of mine wants to buy a rib, he likes the Avon adventure 560, is the Avon 560 a proper sea going rib? from what i have been told, these ribs are not quite up to the job, compared to some other ribs, is this fair to say? He wants the leisure layout but I think he would be better with the 6m picton cobra as far as sea keeping goes?? what do some of yu other guys think, he's got around 14k to spend on a rib, but it must have seating for 2-3 adults and 3 kids, he wants something 2004 or newer.

TCWOZERE had one for a while, all be it in orange. Normal heavy duty Avon tubes and excellent quality with Outhill consoles. Went well with 80 hp.

However what really impressed me was that you really sit in them not on them even with jockey seats, so super safe with little people as the tube height is high. Deffinately worth looking at in my opinion.
