Another one for sale on Ribnet with a different layout. BHG should be able to arrange a test drive on the water for you.


Ribnet is best viewed on a computer of some sort

I would go for a bit more power if possible. Our Merc 135 is a great engine and goes like stink.

I can't comment on the Avon 620 specifically but I have that same Yamaha outboard on a 6.3m RIB and the performance is very good. Lovely engine.

IMHO I think it will be more than adequate for family boating.
