changing sizes and types...

I am maybe looking at getting something like a Fairline Targa...this goes against all my RIB loving...but I don't think I can justify spending a sum of 45,000 plus on something that at the end of the day is a day boat.... Is there anyone else who is boat minded and would like to have a RIB in addition to a larger cabin boat...
I would also like to have a 6 ish metre RIb something like an Avon 6.2, tried it at the boat show and loved it...
I am not looking just at the moment...as am away on ship till next febuary but am looking into ideas...such as going in halves with someone who maybe wants a larger cabin boat but also a RIB..is there anyone in this site who has thought of that...I am looking at maybe up to 100,000 for a Cabin boat so to get a fairly newer one up to maybe 5/6 years old...and also 20,000 on a RIB... therefore a total of 120,000...yes very expensive but a partnership of maybe 2 even three people...I think it would be better to pay 60,000 or even 40,000. I spend up to 2 years away in an 3 year period and therefore can not justify like all the other large cruiser owners of having a boat sat there in a Marina collecting dust...a boat is to be used...two boats even better...If u both want to use it...then if u have two maybe swap each day but both stay on it overnight...???
So anyone else thought of boat sharing... I am not a joyriding youngster...I am young but enjoy quality boats for passage making to parts u can't get to...normally...
So any one thought of this idea too??
Alex

Why not a cabin RIB, Alex?

Mine's got three berths - could easily be 4 - in a 9m boat and sleeping aboard is very comfy in sheltered water.

And now that I've got my beefy new Yanmar 300 we have all the benefits of a cabin cruiser with sea-keeping qualities and fun of a RIB.

I keep the boat out of the water and just lift in when I want to go for a ride.

I've been the two boat route. It's an absolute pain.

But good luck, whatever you do.
