It doesn't have to cost that much. A bit of good design work will go a long way.

Look at all that BBQ space on the bonnet Just need some dolly bird instead of the old raggie bird to spice up the deck a bit, but the old one would be fine in the cockpit if I tinted the windows and kept her down there

I think you are looking at the question the wrong way. Instead of 'what boat should I get next?' the question should be 'what domestic appliance* do I next want to take to sea?'. Once you have decided whether you want to upgrade from your microwave (e.g., to a George Foreman Grillin' Machine or a full rotisserie), the options for boats start to present themselves.

Given your SR4 can travel [quite] fast at wave height and can emit microwave pulses (albeit only of the pasty-warming variety) I think you have 'unique selling point' and a possible future as a dummy anti-ship missile for naval training purposes. Given that traditionally dummy weapons are often painted in a high-vis orange colour scheme you are already half way there.
