Ah so your a diesel man, for the money then, even after sorting out new seating which can definatly be done its probably alot of boat for the money.
Im trying to think of diesel alternatives around that price and im struggling! Pacific 22, although probably not as fast, only other two in this size I can think of are the Parker 630 and the Solent 6m, both of which are likely to be a little more expensive although probably a better boats.

There is a delta up north for sale at 16K, diesel/jet. The picture is not very good but it does look like the other extreme,rather industrial. Nice high bow though.

Make me an offer I can't refuse!!!

I love my Ribtec. As Pete says, the previous owner really did look after her well (Andy on Ribnet) and she only looks about 6 years old (she's a 1991 hull). The deep v is fun in chop - very quick to plane, and very soft on landing. Slightly different driving style to some boats, but you'll get that whatever.

I really rate the Ribtec 585 as a sea boat, because it seems solidly built, and handles very well.

Nice boat and worth an offer, may be worth asking the boatmad lot its history as I believe its had some involvement with OCR racing as a safety boat, Boatmad advert

Ignoring the engine hp, consider Robins Tiffino, Ribcraft 585, merticulously maintained, would have no quarms about a channel crossing on her.

Interestingly though Pete, one type of boat I have been keeping an eye on is the pacifics. Various ones seem to keep popping up at Folly Ribs.
