Second hand advice

I,m looking a buying a used rib big enough to cart my family round in(no cabin).
Needs to be about 7-8m. I live in the Channel Islands so the water gets a bit lively. Any recomendations?

Probably a scorpion is your best bet, smooth ride, and most have good seat layouts.

Your best bet is to look through on something like boats and outboards and see if you can find something you like, and then post the link here, and ask for peoples opinions on that boat
