Some advice please

Evening to all,

A mate of mine ( person a) wants to know if hes making the right decision. To set the story: Person A has a 50 ft sunseeker moored in St tropez ( sheltered bay) with a 3.2m jet tender. He is lucky and has two berths and wants to buy a rib. He's speced up a zodiac medline II ( as recommended by me) with a Yamaha 150 and med spec, there is a nearby zodiac dealer. he wants it for day trips as a change from the main boat. It would not be his main boat. All he'd do would be take it to a bay, anchor and sunbathe. The sunseeker would be his boat for exploration. Taking all this into account would he be right to purchase the medline II, since this seems best suited to his needs. Or are we overlooking some other major contendors or factors.

Any help much appreciated. ( any advice will also benefit my own situation)

Thanks.

if hes just taking it to the bay and stuff i think he can put a smaller engine on that pup to save some money. Im not a big fan of Zodiac but they do have the bow cushions and such so it will probably be the best choice....

If you want a good solid boat, go for a 6m+ Ribcraft or Ribtec with Twin Outboard Engines or a decent diesel for smugness. If you want a poser mobile, I'm the wrong person to ask, lol.

Keef.

Is there a length limit? Not sure how long a Medline 2 is but we make a 7.7m that would definitely fit in down there! email me at cookee@bananasharkracing.com and I'll send you some photos if you're interested.
