Simply asking because its always interesting to know what other people think when looking at boat adverts - would the above put you off buying that boat?

Oops! I'd misread the ad ( on my phone) I thought it was a 2015.

Hi, I'm looking for a boat for use in coastal waters (mainly NW Ireland). Will mainly be for taking family out whilst on holiday, probably towing some sort of inflatable toy and a bit of fishing. Budget is somewhere between 5k & 10k for 1st boat- once I've caught the bug properly I'm sure I'll end up spending more on the 2nd!

Got offered a 2nd chance from eBay on the nova marine rib and, after speaking to the vendor was reassured enough to go ahead and buy it.
