Crusher - that does look like a very nice boat indeed and ticks a lot of boxes!

Good point about the Tornado's trailer. Will carry on looking...
Don't be in a rush to spend your hard earned, keep your options open & ask the advice of the collective BEFORE you buy, too many people turn here for help after the fact & by then it's too late. Chances are that when you do find a boat, it might already be "known" on here & you'll get some history. Also, don't be afraid to ask someone to give it a second lookover before you spend your cash, take your time

Like Rool 5
good advice on this post.

RE Tornado be wary of a secondhand Tornado if its over 10 years They have PVC Toobs and they start to go off particularly if they are orange and have been left in the Sun without a cover.

Good news is they can be bought with bad toobs and retoobed in Hypalon if the price is right

Personally I think a Searider 5.4 is an excellent starter boat, I don't think there is a better Sea keeping hull in that size they are built very strongly. Usually you can get a decent one for 5 k - beat the crap out of it for a couple of years and still get most of your money back. If you grow to love it ( should take about 10 Nautical miles) then you can throw money at it and make it look sooper!

Like Benjy's, Zubols ,Colcrete, Bushriders, Macmillans or Mine.

That's interesting about Tornados.

This one has rather caught my eye...

Tornado - 5.3m RIB RIBs and Inflatable Boats for sale in Sussex, South East :: Boats and Outboards

Any opinions?

(Cor Blimey Nick we've agreed on something)+1 That's a 17 year old boat. and it looks like its been used as a work boat to me. Also don't forget if a Broker is selling boat he's looking for a piece of the action which generally doesn't come from adding any value
