RIBeye .... Confused!

Found this on B&O http://www.boatsandoutboards.co.uk/s...-500m-PAA75787 initially wondered if the year '2005' was just a typo as the asking price and first couple pictures suggest something much newer. Looked at RIBeye site and sure enough the styling is there latest design and looks very smart! Also states tubes are Hypalon these days?

Now look at the third picture is it the same boat!? Looks to me the same colour scheme I would associate with RIBeye of 2005 vintage .... but if you look closely at pictures one and three the same boat covered with blue cover is there so think its taken from same location, not in your usual scammer price range in fact (in my opinion) overpriced if it is actually 2005

Confused and suspicious is it genuine but poorly advertised or should I follow it up?? (Think I have answered my own question but as always appreciate others view)

Year look right as it has the metal rails set in the deck so it can not be any newer! Dout it has hypalon tubes and would say it is top dolla for the age.

Thanks for the education Nick

Jambo - In no rush, not my first choice and now it's confirmed 2005 wont be following it up. Will keep it on the radar thou, when he's desperate to sell and it's priced more realistically, I cant find my first choice etc
