it is like I said to one forum member many years ago. I do not make them I sell them. and before you ask - yes he did buy one and it was an all Yellow RIB and now some know who that person was.
anyway why have a 6.0 mtr when one can have a 6.50
Yes it was a joke, relax
Why have a 6m over a 6.5? Simple, cost of purchase and ownership costs.
most "normal cars" will struggle with a 6.5 or are at the upper limit of their capacity. I.e mondeo, insignia, astra, focus etc Not to mention fuel, storage etc all goes up of course. Anyone under 35 will need to sit a towing test (400-1000 quid) for 6.5m and probably think about a bigger than normal car. Decent chance both of those are okay with a 6m boat. The fact most cars are going with the no torque with turbo on a small engine road doesn't help.
Anyways, there are many good reasons for me and IMO 5.8 - 6.2m is the sweet spot in the market, Parker obviously have their own thoughts and fair play to them.
