depends what you are teaching and where. Do you mean for power boat instruction? or for traching dinghy sailing? what level? is this the only boat? how many people? where will you be sailing? how will you be launching?

If it's dinghies, probably one of these:

I notice all your pics are of 6+ M boats. If you are teaching powerboating, any or all could be valid. You probably want a selection anyway to give a good spread of learning (e.g. SIB / RIB/ Dory , big / small, single /twin, wheel / tiller, planing / displacement.......

If for rescue / teaching at a sailing centre, probably nothing bigger than 5.5m or your fuel bills will cripple you. I *think* the RYA has a reccommended boat - probably best to give them a call.

I've taught Oppies from a canoe in the dim & distant past.......

I think the RYA's preferred option for sailing coaching is this:

Long time ago now, but when i was teaching we had a number of 4m seariders with tiller steered 30hp, a couple of 5.5m seariders with twin 30's and a big wooden workboat. For teaching dinghy sailing and windsurfing the 4m were the best, very easy to do windsurf rescue with them.

if I was specing a rib purely for trining thenmy number 1 priority would be side by side jockeys with a centre throttle and kill kord

ospreys ar every sweet boats if you can't get a searider to suit your needs

This is pretty scary but I am in 100% agreement with Rogue

C2Ribs use a Ribeye Ribtec 585 with a Yamaha 100HP. Full RYA spec. Very capable for RYA Training, safety cover etc. Look at his website, or give him a call. Ian is always very helpful.
