New 4-5m rib

Hey guys first post on here!

I have been seeing a lot of Avon sea rider forums on here!

I need a rib preferably 4.5 or smaller that can tow a wakeboarder/ringo and be able to fish and drop lobster pots from, I live in Cornwall in padstkw so launching isn't hard!

I've been looking at the sr4's but I would really love a brand new fresh boat! Is there anything similar available? With a 4-stroke I heard the ribcraft 4.2 has the same hull shape?

Also what speeds/fuel usage would I be looking at with a Honda 50hp?

Any help would be amazing cheers!!!

Zodiac have bought Avon and are manufacturing new avon seariders. You are looking at around 13-14k for a new package though.

Seaswift have some good options: They supply the Highfield Ocean Master aluminium range to Honda Marine dealers, offering both 460 and 420 versions (I have the OM 540)

Check out the Highfield range at:
http://www.seaswift.co.uk

They also have a few Xpro Defender 420 models for sale. These also have aluminium hulls and get great reviews.

Here's an example...
