Nice set-up. Make sure the engine has a good service record, if it's an optimax this is essential
I own a 6.2m Vipermax which was made in 2007 from the same mould the one you're looking at. It's tube ends in water underway, which takes a little bit off of top speed but IMHO adds to the handling. They are pretty quick when the going gets tough and will leave plenty of other RIBs in their wake.
I would look closely at the tube manufacture and check all the seams etc. I've had issues with my seams coming apart, nothing too serious and all the work I to rectify I did myself, but be warned!
Other that that, they are terriffic boats and you'll never feel caught out in bad weather.
