The requirments are:

Engine must be diesel
Must be able to hold 4 crew comfortably (Maybe even backrests standing instead of jockey seating)
Must be capable of 45knots
Fuel range must be at LEAST 250miles (Could do a DIY and fit a portable tank on the deck)

What would you choose? Obviously I would not be buying new, but something less than 5 years old would be nice.

I see a few of the bigger RIB's are equipped with Yanmar engines - Anyone care to comment on these? Good/bad?

They seem to be coupled with Bravo III drives - I've heard some not-so-nice stories here. Anyone again care to comment?

Suggestions people!!
How's the search for the the above going?

I thought I had you on ignore... Hmm maybe a glitch in the system.

Search is going fine, waiting for exams to finish and then flying to the UK and another European country to inspect, finger's crossed will find the right RIB there. If not, back to the drawing board

It looks like Miss World when compared to a Lema Gold, the Wartburg Knight of the boating world.
