I was going to say £12.5k!!! That'll just about buy you an optimax and cables.

For the size you want I think twins is unlikely, by the time your setup.

I'd look for a good main engine like a 200hp Opti (no offence against evinrudes, they are bomb proof if not a little agricultural) as it will give you the performance your probably looking for.

I'd then invest in a 8hp auxilary engine for safety.

All this for £25k, your probably looking at something like an XS700 which will probably do all that you require. Although your budget maybe a little tight by the time you've sorted out console/seats/ and extras.

I've got (just about) the XS700 and can't recommend them enough although I am actually selling mine at the moment to buy the new XS950. I went for the delta formation as it gave me about 6ft of free space at the back of the RIB which is ideal for 2 or 3 divers to kit up.

Give Laurence at Barnet Marine a ring (or email....it's on the website www.xs-ribs.co.uk) and see what he can do and say Ian from Guernsey sent you.

that 12.5k was for twin evinrudes, the opti are ok but you need to be attached to a fuel tanker to get any real distance


even a single 225 E-TEC and small 8/9hp back up would only be 9.5k when bought with a rib

And you reckon the E-Tec is hugely more fuel efficient????

But if you can get the 225 E-tec and a 8/9hp for 9.5k then your within budget!

P.S. What sized envinrudes and where are you getting these from as they sound a bargain????
