I have the 585. Only disadvantage I can see over getting the 535 is that if you trailor/sail you need two people for launching and retrieving. But it is bigger so i can get four people comfortably on board.
What exactly does the second person do? Hold a towel or pour the brandys?

Is that except for the Racing Greyhound !

There is a Rib craft on ebay, but £9250 sounds expensive for a 4 year old 4.8m !!!!

I did say one of the best!!! Unfortunately Greyhound isn't racing much at the moment, and it's depressing me to see her sitting in the yard, so will someone please offer me some money to take her off my hands and get her up and running and showing Ribcrafts a clean transom again...

That 4.8 is seriously nice though. They do seem to hold their value pretty well.

The owner posts on here, nice complete boat but for I would like more than 50HP for what is the best part of £10k.
This one looks a good deal http://www.boatsandoutboards.co.uk/view/F112975

Nah, I don't like the look of that engine much. What you really want is one of these: http://www.boatsandoutboards.co.uk/view/F121546/ with one of benc's Yammie 115s on the back...
