Having bought a Ribeye, I have to say for that money I would go for a 5m I have seen them come up for 12k odd mint condition & you do get a very well laid out family boat loads of storage, great for skiing curosing it has been a great all rounder for us
Good v hull & nice shear to the bow, gives a good ride out in the chop

Pick up my V520 tomorrow. Long drive to Middelborough from Bognor Regis, but I've got a very good deal on a 2009 Boat with a 90 Etec and only 30 hours. Will report back once I've got it. Happy days :~}

Expect the rib to Chine walk if the hull is similar to the DR 490. If it does it will kick you out

same boat as mine including A frame.

mine grey and blue as opposed to yours been blue and grey.

i have slightly diff console i think urs is older model but the set up looks exactly the same.

regarding chine walking, mine does at max which is close to 40mph but i am very very very rarely doing in excess of 30 mph. i usually cruise around mid twenties.

nice boat, health to enjoy.
