Identify this Avon Rib

Can anyone tell me what Avon this is, I know its not a searider.

Its 4.7m, so I think its a 4.65, seasport, supersport or adventure??? Believe its 1995.

There are a couple of similar boats on ebay, but the have much shallower decks, i.e less freeboard. Click image for larger version

Adventure hull.

Basically a searider with no water ballast and lighter tube fabric.

No the hulls way to shallow, Looking at it again I think its a Seaport 4.65 with a searider type deck instead of the moulded deck.

I think your right, it must be a rescue spec seasport, orange tubes, grab lines and lots of handles.. The id plate is missing, if anyone comes across a spec that would be useful.

You're probably right.

The neoprene anti-wear pads had me fooled...they put that on the early Adventures!
