I have always had to work hard for my money ( apart from the 10 years in IT) and I don't like buying a product that I think won't hold it's value in proportion to the competiton. I believe that to be one of Ribeyes shortcomings.
You might be right about the Hyundai bit, but that sounds about right for a first boat - I didn't pass my driving test in a Ferrari!
I also work hard for my money but as with cars, I won't buy a dull Merc for the resale value when I really want an Alfa Romeo!
Build quality seemed good to me compared with the others i looked at. Asked Solent Ribs for a quote 2 weeks ago and am still waiting - they must have all the customers they need!
As I say, I'm certainly no expert and I will keep looking before i buy, but at the moment my criteria is most closely filled by the Ribeye, not least of which is that I only have to paddle a 100 yards across the medina from my pontoon to the dealer when it breaks!
