My advice is threefold if you're serious about ribbing in the UK:
1. A deep V hull and high bow
2. Quality jockey seats
3. British manufactured in Hyaplon

Happy shopping

Well I cant knock my Ribtech. 20 years on and still going.
Rib eye seem good to.

Best to take a look at some and give them a try.

But like many have said its all the little bits that build the cost up.
vhf,echo, nav/gps, antenas, controls, gauges, ropes,anchors,fenders,covers, flares, tools, spares.

but they are good fun and go for what you like and can afford
