Avon 450 vs Zodiac pro 12

Hello, I have a question,

For the moment I have an Avon Adventure 450 ( which is 4,5m) with a 60PK Yamaha and I am planning to switch over to another boat. Because I think that it has to less V-shaped - hull for trips on the sea. Specially when the sea becomes more rough.

I am thinking about buying a Zodiac Pro 12, ( which is 5.2m) with a 80PK Do you think this would be better for trips on rough seas, or do you think that I would not feel a big diference?

Does anyone have som reviews or an opinion about the Avon 450,
Are there any tests of zodiac ribs (pro 12) on a more rough sea? Is there some difference with bombard?

Think you need to speak to Bogi. This group used a Pro 15 man for a trip to the Faroes. One word of warning, it's rated for 150hp... they stuck 250hp on it. Welcome the ribs, Iceland-style!
