Does look tidy - about the right case, nice boat and a great size.

Saying that I've just taken the rear bench out of my 4.8 as it wasn't comfy for the passengers and put to much weight on the rear when used by adults.

Maximum power for the 4.8 is listed as 60hp — it might be worth giving the transom a very careful look over, because that one's got a 75 on it.

Slightly confused. They don't make a 4.85 and I don't think they ever have.
Current sizes are either a 4.8 a 5.3 or a 5.85.
Ribcraft did make a 5.45 around this age boat.
From the pictures and the engine size (4.8 is rated to max 60hp so I think this is ruled out)
I think it could well be a 5.45
I would message the seller and ask for a photo of the boat plate. This will tell you.

If it is a 5.45 then I have owned one. IMO. This was an incredible boat, punched way above its weight in terms of boat ride and performance.

Looks like a good setup, well worth a sea trial and a check out... Good luck!!

No way that's a 545 definitely sub 5.0 meter...

From the size of the folks on board and the space around the console I'd guess it's a 4.8. Looks smaller than our 5.3

Does look similar to my 4.7, I thought it looked quite pricy for a 17 yo boat.
