I was thinking Sterling - and it certainly has gone sky high at the moment! I'm not a price expert - just basing on a few I've seen for sale. Assuming top nick and well maintained.

Is there much difference between the Redbay 6.5 and the 650?

I am also hoping to win the lotto. But I am wondering are the 6.1 & 6.5 m redbays tail heavy when rigged with twin engines as so often seemes to be the way?

The 650 has a fully moulded GRP deck and console, so the finish is very good, but it reduces the ability to customise the boat somewhat. The 6.5 is the same hull with a ply or Nidaplast deck.

To answer TSMs question, I'm not sure about the 6.1 (I have no experience with it) but the 650/6.5 is well able to cope with twin outboards - the beam is enormous! I've seen a 6.1m with twin Suzi 75s running in a bit of a sea and it looked fine.
