Selva ribs who knows anything about them

I am looking at a Selva 5.8m rib with a Mariner 225hp I have been researching Ribs as I am looking to purchase my first for Cruising with my family. I have a limited budget and this appears to much newer and with a more potent motor than the others within my price bracket so any feedback would be useful. Its my first rib so I do not want to make a huge mistake.

Congratulations on this web site it is really superb

regards

Jetski

I'd check the rated HP if I were you. 225hp sounds waaaaaay OTT for a 5.8m rib. You don't want the transom coming off after you land hard.
