Hi

If the pic is anything to go by it looks well looked after. I guess it's 4.5? Zodiac have made boats for a long time but I've never used a rib version myself. With a 40 on the back it'll be lively enough. I've been out today in a 4.5 with a 40 and it was great fun.

I hope she enjoys it

Get her a SIB and outboard, seems like a big jump for a first boat.

Nah! I know a bloke who's first (own) boat was a 6.5m twin engined Redbay - piece of p1ss! What better way to learn than in your own rib (wot u love)

I disagree!

Looks like a good package for a starter boat. I think I was about 15 when I managed to persuade my parents to buy me a RIB - similar sort of size. Had lots of fun with it and taught me loads

PS. I would be tempted to try and beat them down on price a tad as the engine isn't the newest
