Avon 4.7 Searider?

Noticed this one AVON ADVENTURE 4,7 RIB WITH 40 HP YAMAHA OUTBOARD | eBay
(nothing to do with me)
Although it's described as an Adventure it seems to be a re-tubed Searider and have a blocked off flooding hull.

Perhaps he's put the 40 on just to sell and is keeping his good engine for a proper Searider 5.4

These are called "Avon Adventure SR4.7" They are essentially an SR4.7 with leisure look tubes. As whisper says they were available with white hulls and a choice of white, blue or orange tubes. Given the poor reputation of the Avon Adventure, these can be a good find.
