BWM 6.3 Rib - Any advice /pitfalls on this type of RIB please?

Hi All

Summer will soon be here!

I have searched this site for BWM and found some detail which is great but can anyone please offer any advice of this type of RIB? It's alittle bigger than I was orginally looking at but seems like alot of boat for the money.

BWM Animal 6.3m For Sale - GBP 11,995 - Unknown, UK - Boatshop24.co.uk

Have not looked at it as yet but just wanted to initially understand what they are like and if there is anything in particular I should be concerned about?

All wise words greatly appreciated, thank you.

Falcon0310 you are way way out of date...if you are referring to the Lemmer copies then you need to go back 20 years and don’t get carried away with others rhetoric...

The BWM 6.3m was developed originally by Eddy but it has been modified – steps moved, front kicked up and the console, seats, coamings and deck is all BWM...
Best to do a water test before you buy?

Thank you to all who replied and PM's, heard good things about this hull so from my side it's positive although I believe this RIB has been sold.
