Been offered a 455 Zodiac Cherokee

I've been offered a 2003 Zodiac Cherokee with a 50hp Tohatsu engine for 3500 inc a trailer.

I've also seen a Zodiac YachtLine 500 Club for 4250 inc 50 hp Evinrude and trailer.

I'll be using if for estuary and coastal boating, mainly fishing and family days up and down the Devon coast where i live.

Anyone had any experience of these? Thoughts please? This is not my first boat, but it is my first RIB.

Thanks

Ash

I'd go for the Yachtline Club... They're a lot more of a premium boat.

The Cherokee was an entry level boat with a glued on PVC tube set.

I sold my Cherokee 18 months 2 years ago, with that self same setup, it is a shallow V, slaps a little, but god we had some fun in her, you got any pics , is it the same one.

The Cherokee models were great boats. They were marketed as a Mediterranean style family fun with lots of storage built in. Yes it did have a glued on tube but they were well built and can be replaced professionally if need be.
I've got one sitting in the corner of my shop Waiting for retube in the next few weeks.
