I personally would get something even cheaper to see if you'll get the use out of it, enjoy it. You'll find out whats best for you and the other people who use the boat.

With a decent budget,and definately a buyers market my advice would be to have a good look at whats around,plenty of low hours RIBs crop up which may offer better value in the long run.
