I think that boat looks a bit shallow in the hull. probably won't be very good in roughish water.

The bench seat at the back just looks abit odd, and as Biggles says its only a shallow v, the engines a little dated too. I think you could get more for your money, would be a good boat but is drastically over priced. A number of ribs in your price range at the moment over on boatsandoutboards.co.uk
No hard feelings if you've bought it

This ones not a bad deal with abit of negotiation, I know the owner and its been looked after, got the TLDI direct injection Tohatsu on it too!

I want this one! engines yr2k http://www.boatsandoutboards.co.uk/view/F98906

Been on the market for too long, but is the right money:

And thats at a glance, with a proper look you are bound to find something better value.
