Very wise

But... Bear in mind any engine is disproportionately thirsty at full throttle, so something that can meet your cruising speed requirement comfortably will be better in the long run.

This might be for you then;
Barnet Marine Centre - Tornado - Tornado 5.8 - Used - ::: BOATFINDER*::: - United Kingdom
I was suggested this one by Laurence but ended up buying the new XS 530. 530 and 580 are both new XS models, with the same beam as Tornado had...

Thanks mate it does look nice BUT it's too near the same as new boat money (hence your purchase!!) Tornado are advertising a cancelled order for 5,500 but it's all in grey Now if it was orange it would be mine I could also do the above boat myself and save 3Kish

That's why I bought a new XS 530 in the end, to close to new boat money...

I have a little 3.6 tornado that is about 25 years old. It's still bright orange and folks always comment on how tidy she looks. However, I do have to put a bit of air in every couple of weeks.
