Brig 645 eagle

Good afternoon all
I am looking at buying a rib and keep being drawn to the brig eagle 645
My intention is to take it to the south of France and use it for mainly day tripping
Is the brig a good choice
Does anyone have a view please.
Derrick

If you're looking for a Med boat, assuming you want, white, blue piping, teak decking, bench seat etc. Have you looked at Ribeye? (I never thought I'd see the day when I said that&#128516 if you are leaving her afloat in the sun, I'd avoid PVC tubes like the plague. The Med can get quite lively in the late morning/afternoons, so I'd be looking for a decent hull that will get you back home if you venture out in the morning & get caught out.

Popular opinion is that brig build quality is not the best. So looks the part but won't stand up to time and the elements, that's a summary and only an opinion 😄.
