that look's like a seriously light layup, the way the rollers are warping the hull, you'll need to put that one on a bunk trailer, this is classic case of why some boats are dearer than others, a few of the ribeye boats i've had in are doing the same, last month i went to look at a ribeye 650 for a bloke, it was advertised low hours and very clean, and it was, but 3 years of siting on it's trailer had took it's toll on the hull

Is it still under warranty?

If so, I'd be taking that back to the dealer as not fit for purpose.

Bloody hell,that's a seriously thin hull....................no more slagging humbers off when there's things built like that around.
I'd be inclined to use the phrase ''not of merchantable quality or fit for the purpose intended'' Personally I'd get it surveyed and then threaten legal action unless I had a fit for purpose replacement or refund.

In our sailing club we run two SR4's,a 4.8 Avon and a 5m humber,occassionally well-meaning helpers load the boats onto the wrong trailers so the rollers are all wrong,ie all the weight on only two sets of rollers,keel rollers nowhere near the keel etc. But none of our boats have ever done anything like whats pictured.

Can't see any keel rollers. Does the trailer have a hinged swing beam for the boat to ride on before it's hauled onto the rollers?

Thanks for all the advice lads, the boat as 2 yrs warranty still left on it ,the dealer did say do another season then bring it back, i think by the end of next season the hull will be a lot worse than it is now, so maybe i can push him for new boat then or a refund , thank again

Certainly looks like a poor trailer setup.. Roller setup looks too far down the hull towards the keel.. Not enough rollers.. And no keel rollers by the looks of it?! I'd be going back to the dealers looking for extra rollers.. Worst case scenario spare rollers are cheap enough!

mmm... sounds more like the dealer is angling for the "well its 2 yrs old, its just wear and tear, you've enjoyed it for 2 years so you certainly can't get a full refund, how about a discount on a new boat" line. Its crap now - tell him to fix it now. You don't want it develop into serious problem that leaves you boatless at the start of the season - this is the ideal time to get it sorted.
