I want to use this boat to go fishing, I'm learning how to fish right now,
so my passangers are men about 45years old, huh, there will be 2 or 3
people on the boat at most of time. By the way, an all weather boater will be better and
I'm not Beckham

Thanks advance, looking forward to your suggestion, have a good day.
First thought is whether anything under 5m is enough for 3 to fish from. A RIB loses a lot of room/beam compared to a normal boat.

Also budget of 8k dollars is about 5K that would be a tight budget even over here with a larger market for anything over 4m

Perhaps an open boat is better if fishing inland rivers or inshore.

If not, you want Hypalon tubes and a deep V hull to provide good seaworthiness.

Common choices are a Searider or Tornado, both solid no frills very seaworthy boats.

Rather than get a new boat I think you should look for a used boat on this budget. OZ waters are tricky at times and there is view that their is no substitute for length. (boat length) All weather and trailable? 6.5 - 7.5mtrs, there are a lot of good OZ builders and boats from New Zealand boats, AMF or Rayglass are very good.

In your part of the world they tend to have a slightly deeper V and finer entry than in Europe or the US to cope with you sea conditions

For 8k what 7.5m boat with engine is attainable? Surely it would be pretty tired?

Whatever you decide, do not be tempted to buy anything from a Chinese spammer. That would be a really bad thing and we probably wouldn't want to hear about it.

Oh, but do send us a postcard from Australia if you ever go there!

It's the food in Qingdao. I believe they eat a lot of the Chinese copy of spam.
