Avon 4m Adventurer

Hi there,

Does anyone own / has owned or can provide info on the Avon Adventurer. I see that most are fitted with a 40hp would this be powerful enough to tow wakeboarder / skier or would a 50 be a better option?

Possibly looking to buy a smallish rib.

Your advice appreciated.

Gibbo

Why particularly the Adventurer? Is it down to seating capacity?

Hi,

I would like a smallish rib as access to my house and storage is restricted. I have noticed a few on B&O / Fleabay. They look quite nice.

Thanks

I'm going to sound like a parrot here but if you only need seating for 2, get yourself a well set up Avon Sr4 with a jockey console and 40-50hp on it. Quite simply the best 4m rib ever made.

Maybe not as 'pretty' as a 4m Adventure, but far more effective in rougher seas.

If you're only looking for something to tow a skier/wakeboarder on calm water, then the Adventure should be ok. It wouldn't be my choice though.

No reason an Sr4 can't be 'pretty' (note that I don't know the company selling it)

Wouldn't fancy my chances of staying in it though without a jockey seat.

Is that blue toobed 4.7 still for sale?If it is,it's been for sale a while-might be a bargain for someone.
