Opinions please!

Hi there, just joined this forum as I'm thinking of getting my first RIB. I've spotted this boat on eBay and would be interested in any opinions, positive or negative.

Kind Regards

Brendan

For a 12 month old boat, there seems to be a lot wrong with it. Where are you going to use it & for what? If you are using it for a yacht tender in the Med, it looks ok, if you are using it in UK coastal waters, I'd keep looking.

What do you want to do with it? Sea, loch, family cruise, river, offshore? Different boats will be good at different things and if you give an idea of what you need you will find there are people here that will help you and give advice. Budget would help too 👍🏻

I have nothing to do with this boat but I'm just curious about the above point. For a 10 year old boat I personally wouldn't consider a missing transducer, "sloppy" remotes (whatever that means) and a rip in the cover as being massive issues. 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?
