Bombard Explorer DB500

Hi !
I'm going to buy my first RIB.
It will mainly be used for family trips (3 pers) and sometimes with friends 8-9 pers.

Anyone got any experience of Bombard Explorer DB500?
Is it a good boat for a small family with the dragon afraid of troubled waters?

Looking forward to hear from you with experience of Bombard or any other brand suited for a small family.

Best regards,

A 5m with 9 people might be a bit crampt....

5m is a good size for your family of three; I go out as part of a 3 in my 4.1 and we have more than enough space.
