sensible really if you get the right boat they normally have a few extras with them just be carefull go and see it, crawl all over it like a rash if its looked after chances are you have a good one.

Used Bombard 640 RIB with Suzuki 140HP Outboard Engine and Trailer for just over £13,000 its over my main budget yes but its complete and its also over my spec that i was going for but as you know jeff over is big smiles

but there is this one as well Excel Used Excel 470 RIB with Evinrude 60HP Outboard Engine and Trailer its under my spec in boat size by 300mm but i think i could live with this at £7,500 at only 7 yr old and well looked after
ive got all year to browse the sites looking for the right boat this is just a few i found straight off the bat and one thing is for sure i will not rush in to any purchase but if the right one comes along in the mean time so be it

(well i found one at 168kg seems to be the closest) Is this for the use of a 2 stroke 75 instead of a four stroke 75, if this is so, i would have to knock down the hp that i would like because now way would i put a 75hp 2 stroke on the boat. my 15hp 2 stroke uses like 12ish litres per day and thats just fishing around the shore
Suzuki 70 hp 4 stroke weights about 155kgs. Lightest in the 1500cc block.
Yamaha is lightest but have smaller block and smaller lower...try to find on youtube suzuki 70 vs yamaha 70..
I have ordered suzuki 70 df from barnet marine for 5.2 boat after long hesitation between suz and yam..finally suz.was the choice..

I am paying different because i get tax free. Taxes payed locally.
As i mentioned the dealer it is not appropriate to mention price, but i advice you contacting laurence at barnet. I think he has yam 70 in stock.

Was your price including cables? Or regular package?
