Old Avon Adventure vs Searider

Hi I am looking for a Searider or similar and saw a 1995 Avon rib. Click image for larger version

To me it looks like an Adventure.
Is this correct?
And do the old Adventure's have the same sea keeping abilities compared to the Seariders or are they more like the modern ones?
Thanks Whizz.

That isn't an adventure hull, looks too narrow.

Also looks like it is well down in back so I assume the hull is flooded which a wasn't an option on the adventure.

Cheers

Yeah, it's an adventure, they're dogs. Where is it and what's the phone number?

Hi, thanks for the replies.
I guess it is a Searider then and I wouldn't be interested if it was an Adventure.

How much do you think this SR4 is worth?
It's up for 6k which in my opinion is way too much.

I have to say that's a sweet looking boat. The engine and trailer will affect price. Age/hours/condition...?
