Avon inboard

Take a look at this, been thinking about going for an inboard RIB next, I was thinking diesel. Found this petrol one, does anyone on here know it? Opinion and experience appreciated.

I'm no expert , but I'm sceptical thats an avon hull & tubes. Defo outhill seats etc .

Cant really explain why though - maybe its the tubes - just doesn't look 'right' to me.

Edit - just looked at sellers neg feedback - on another RIB ...............

Outhill do supply Avon.
What got me was if I'd had a brand new engine fitted I'd have had a few photos showing it off.

Doesn't look ('feel') right to me either. I'd be really wary about parting with 10k for something on ebay.

I've a feeling that boats with an inboard petrol engine are very difficult to insure - might be wrong though.

I thought an early humber given the amount of overhang at the bows. Old hull with new tubes me thinks. Not sure it is an 11k boat though.
