You've got it wrong - he's gonna buy a Targa with at least one running engine and a cocktail bar.

Shearwater RIBs 860 boat for sale in United Kingdom - Ref: 79718 - m.uk.yachtworld.com

Very, very nice but 50% more than budget is a bit more than a stretch

I can feel myself heading down the rabbit hole, budget starts out at 20k (last week) and ends up with me spending 60K !!

I love the Zodiac cabin ribs, but 50k is just too much for the amount of use it will get, but give them 5 years and they will probably top of my list.

Your comments about leisure ribs havent been taken the wrong way,I want every ones thoughts.

Been looking around for the last month or so, my experience suggests that "leisure" ribs tend to be much wider (which my better half and family like) giving a lot more space, they have seats that look great and are really comfy while you are on the trailer but from my limited experience would be horrible when out on the water. The wider hull usually means flatter deadrise and rubbish handling.

I have 2 very different experiences of leisure ribs.I borrowed a small Zodiac Yachtline 340DL to use as a tender. It was fantastic, smooth 3 pot 2 stroke Yam on the back, soft riding hull, stable in all (moderate) conditions and it felt safe and comfortable. Great for sking the kids, lots of storage for all the bits and pieces and just a really enjoyable rib to play with, even though it was tiny.

The year after I borrowed a a Zodiac Pro 6m ish (sorry cant remember exact model). It had a horrible 2 stroke 100hp Suzuki, chine walked at anything over 35kts, helm seats that would have been better suited as bar stools and a feeling that you were contstantly about to be ejected off the back or over the side. The passenger seating was all above the level of the tubes and the whole thing just felt horrible.

So really I'm just trying to find out if I can buy a scaled up Yachtline 340DL or once I go bigger are alll leisure ribs pretty on the trailer and just pretty rubbish on the water ? And I need all of this for about 30k.
that's why I mentioned Revenger, there is a model with a heads in the console, thinks it's on a 32ft but Phil Morris is the man to ask, if there are any about he'll most probably know and yes, I know Revengers aren't an out n out rufty tufty rib but mines never let me down it's just me that's not up to getting battered to death just yet
