Is this a "bite your hand off deal" ?

Offered :
roughly 3 year old 6.8 ribcraft.....with a 250 suzuki 4 stroke with 180-200 hours done,Regular services, complete with trailer, Aframe, nav gear......etc
has a warranty repair to be done to the console (come away from the deck) which i may try and change to another model as its too big..(its a chart table console whereas i'd "like" a ocean cruising one.

£20,000

what do you guys/gals think to that????? is that a good deal ??? seems good and i've tried the boat out ...its bloody awesome..!

Had a good look though it today with the wife and in true female traits she noticed the seats slightly worn and dirt and grime in places....

Seriously though its VERY tempting ...however for a bit more (£4000 is only a bit.!) i could get a new rib set up with what i want with a 5 year warranty and a new 00 hour engine with 3 year warranty.
I think its save up a bit more and go with new????
Will wait and see what the manafacturers say about the console first.
The big thing for me is its a suzuki and i have no dealer local for service/repairs whereas yamaha is covered very well (scillies)
Agghhh can't decide

ECU there are some other posts on this but i spoke to the local dealer who also sells Yamaha, he said that they are basicly a good engine but it wasant that long ago suzuki did two strokes that did not have a great name and the new four strokes are light years ahead but reliabilty take awhile.

Had another good look at the rib in question and its looking more likely that i may well go for it ...just waiting to see if some small things can be replaced/changed by the builders when they get the boat back for the console fix..

delta for sale coming up??
