Whatís out there around 5-6 meters?

I have a friend looking a decent 5M Rib, he has £5-£10k to spend.
Would need to be top notch as only today he has had a poor experience....
He purchased a 4.9m Valiant, got it home and the engine packed in. Thankfully he got his money back.
He is in Northern Ireland but willing to travel for the right boat.
The internet really isnít his thing, hence me posting on his behalf.

Whatís out there???

This was listed today - hell of a boat, I had the 4.7m version. I'd want it a bit cheaper though!

It is a little expensive, and to be fair he would prefer a more (polished) looking vessel, he wouldnít be just as keen to venture out in much over a slight swell as we would!

Thatís a tidy looking Rib!
Something like that would probably suit me more when Iím ready to change though.
This guy just wants something ready to go, I know for a fact he will be looking for another 2 double jockey seats, an engine and screen on that yoke!
And I doubt all that will come in under budget. Iíll show him later anyway, thanks for getting back to me

Heís not mechanically minded, nor will he intentionally be out in big seas, heís looking something ready to go, to use for his family to do a little island hopping
