what rib for £17000?

new here so please be patient........

Have up to £17,000 CASH to buy a nice rib - have been fancying something like a 7.5m cobra or similar - must be a good hull with a leisure bias - ie nice seats and a sunbed etc.

What do people advise? Missed a nice 7.5m cobra by a week at £14,000 so bargains are around

Will prob use in choppy weather occasionally and am a bit of a speed merchant!

HELP

I may be a bit biased, but if you want a rib which is good for speed and leisure which is what I wanted, a RibEye would be a very good choice, you may find a good 6.5m with a nice Yam on the back for your budget.
