ribs with good seating

looking into getting something new for the summer.
have an avon searider 4.0m
i wanna get somethin a bit bigger, probly around 5.0m
but i want to get more seating. i was looking at a zodiac yachtline as it have plenty of seating an gadgets, but ive got mixed reviews on em. and people say the pvc tubes wont last long.
is the yachtline 4.8 metre the answer or is there other options from other manufacturers??
any feedback would be apreciated.

How do< IMO yachtlines are not up to much except for the birds that sit on them.
if onbudget and looking for nice boat, handles well and notoff shore, you can not do much better than 5 MTR Ribeye playtime. Check Boats and outboards, starting at 10k 05 models. with yam 80 4 stroker.
Regards.

The smaller Brig RIBs seem to have good seating arrangements, can't comment on them other than that tho' I'm afraid

Medline's

The Medline series - Med I - Med II (which I have but am selling on boats and outboards) Med IIc and Med II are all superb family ribs with lots of space for toys, skis, wetsuits and long days on the water, unlike many normal more commercial type RIBS - but each to their own.

Further, it has been debated here many times - many many times the pros and cons of the "sofa style" seating. However, in my personal experience it has never caused me discomfort, inconvenience or given cause for safety concerns when enjoying or enduring whatever conditions have been thrown at me - and I've been out in the best and the worst with the best and the worst - if you get my meaning.

Had a sit on a Brig last weekend. Was quite comfortable in both Bolster and sit down positions. Don't know what it would be like in action though.

Replacing my Medline II.........

.......with - possibly a Sea Pro 196cc or Beneteau 650 WA Flyer. Found a Sea Pro - nice colour - nice kit etc - not found a flyer yet but lookin hard.....

Of course - need the Medline to move first - have someone sniffing the hook - just not taken the bite yet....
