i used to own a 6.0mtr one never really had any problems with it, but there are better rides out there, i used it for a full season with no problems ,
quite a roomy boat and good console setup on mine but there all built to purchasers spec,,
i personaly thought it wa s good rib for money it cost me ... and i sold her above the purchase price with ease but i did keep her clean..and verry tidy

Bob,

I have had a 5.5 widebody for the last two years and have no complaints. Its a good sea boat and gives a very dry ride even in big seas. Upgraded from a 75 four stroke to a 115 optimax last year which gives great performance, 33kn cruise 43kn flat out.

Does look like the bow is the same type as mine, take a look:....

The Transom is slightly higher and planing wedge is different, but it is a 6.2m as opposed to my 5.5!
