Its rib upgrade time again. At present we have a Valiant V520 Rib, with a 90Etec, which has been an excellent rib. However we are a growing family of five, that often go out with another family of four, so space can be tight, although manageable.
So our Valiant is up for sale and we are looking for something bigger, around the 6 metre mark, and a budget of £20k, maybe £25k at a push for the right boat. We are looking for a rear bench seat, more storage and at least 100HP. The boat is used for wakeboarding, skiing, fishing, day trips etc
Am looking to demo the Ribeye 600 and Brig 610 at the Southampton Boat show, any thoughts on these boats? I know the Ribeye is a good boat, but the Brig seems to be the new boy on the block, and I could probably squeeze into a new one for the top of my budget.
And are there any other boats I should be looking at?
Thanks in advance
