I'm sure there's going to be a lot of opinions on this, but after looking for a RIB over the winter I've been offered a SR5.4 which I'm seriously considering. The boat is going to be used for probably diving and charging about round (and taking photos) around the west of Scotland, and would be my very first RIB
It's a military spec one which has been refitted and comes with a Yamaha 90hp engine. Chances are it's going to be used for no more than 4 divers at a time, but I'd like to be able to eventually take it out to e.g. inner hebrides and the small isles for example for longer trips.
The boat in question is this one: http://www.boatsandoutboards.co.uk/s...er-54-PAA21133
The boat itself looks really good, and I've had good comments back from a couple of people I've shown it to, but just wanted to get a few more opinions on its suitability for purpose from before I go ahead
