Before you make your decision I would be tempted to look at Boats and Outboards For Sale , Apollo Duck UK and some of the other sites, there are a lot of similar boats currently available and you may find something better for your circa 17k !!!
I take it your looking at the blue 5.85 ribcraft with 130hp honda on appolloduck.ie. I know the boat, nice boat and i'd say well looked after as i happen to vaguely know the owner.

Yep that's the boat. Seems like it's the ribcraft just need to check it's not too stern heavy. Does anyone know if the transom on the ribcraft is wide enough to take an auxillary. I think the honda is quite a large engine block.

Hi Stig,

I looked at importing, you need to add 1k to the selling price to cover fuel, ferries and food! Don't forget to give the lads at Redbay a call to see if anything interesting is coming back in PX. The exchange rate is well in your favour right now!
