Avon sr4

They do not make these boats brand new?


I am looking at a zodiac futura mk11 but u can't decide whether to get a 4.2m rib or sib

Any good small ribs that I could get with a price range up to £8000 with a 40-50hp mercury?

With an £8k budget you could put together a very nice SR4.

And in my opinion the SR4 & SR4.7 are the best smiles per pound small ribs you can buy. If you want to go larger Ribcraft 4.8 or Ribcraft 5.3 are also good.

I have had 2 SR4's in the past and they are great, handle anything.
Mind you my Avon seasport is pretty much the same except for the steering console!

Are you planning to ever pack the boat away if it was a sib?
If it's to stay on the trailer I would by a rib any day.
