Deep V ribs under 4.9 metres

Advise wanted, i'm looking to buy a rib under 4.9m (restricted by garage size) with a deep V and excellent handling characteristics for the length. I am very keen to find a Ribcraft 4.8 as I understnd they are ideal. As I am finding it hard to find one for sale can you recommend a similar boat with excellent sea keeping abilities. If so do you know of one on the market. Cheers

We have a little Lencraft 4.7 M here beside us in Lough Ree Yacht Club which although only fitted with a Yamaha 40 hp is a proper little Spitfire . It has a fairly deep Vee and just carves through the water .

I'd say that with a 50 hp , it would go like the clappers !

They also have a 4.7 M Avon Searider which might not have the sharp handling of the Lencraft but is nonetheless a good solid little performer with the added advantage or disadvantage ( depending on your use ) of the flooding hull.
Best wishes ,

IŽve the same problem (garage).
IŽm looking for a Tornado 4.5 od Viking 470 with the new 50 hp Tohatsu TLDi 2-stroke, jockey-console and 60 ltr.- console-tank.
Both are heavy duty deep-v ribs (for their size). YouŽll find more informations under

Best regards from Germany, Hamburg
