Our First Rib

Hello all - what a great site and forums! My first visit.

Would you please be able to give me some advice about buying a first RIB?

Me and two friends would like to buy a RIB for about 6,000 (about 4,000) to get us going in this great sport.

What size / make / model is good as a modest start, combining safety, reliability, fun and sporty handling?

I would think we'd be looking at used rather than new.

We are based in Athens and it would be used around the Aegean.

Many thanks

Wellcome to the RIBNet forums.
For the money you say I think an oldish AVON SEA RIDER with a 40-50 bhp 2-stroke. This particular boat is one of the best. Have a look at the various threads and the for sale section
