Brand new SR5.4?
How far either side of 5.5m can we go? Redbay and Parker do some pretty nice boats but the smallest are closer to 6m.

With a lotto win I'd have a Motor yacht big enough to have a 5.5m RIB on the deck.

Parker have a 5.1.
Would have expected RibCraft to make it to the short list.
And may Osprey's have a following on here.
