If your referring to this one Ian, its identical to the one I did my Level 2 on while ago, best to check it hasn't been used a training boat. Was a nice setup and quick, but remember the 75 is a 2stroke, although being a Yamaha one of the best in this size. I believe the 'PRO' apspect of the name means commercial, not 100% though.

Others to consider:
http://www.boatsandoutboards.co.uk/view/F104382 belongs to Mike100 on here may already have been discussed.

http://www.boatsandoutboards.co.uk/view/F103958 Another SR again 2stroke.
http://www.boatsandoutboards.co.uk/view/F103600 still advertised and still competitively priced!!
http://www.boatsandoutboards.co.uk/view/F101879 Nice little Ocean RIB

http://www.boatsandoutboards.co.uk/view/F92722 Tohatsu 70 is a nice lump, but im biased!

I think these are the Dive/Adventure series Avon produce in 5.4 and 5.6m sizes. Very impressive and you should consider it for two counts. One, the tubes are by Avon and seem particularly heavy duty compared to most ribs they are slightly larger than some. Two, You sit right in the boat rather than on it so very safe feeling when on board. Okay the engine is a two stroke but its not going to use that much more at speed over a 4 stroke. Thats an expensive Outhill console btw.

Link to Tonys 5.6m, http://tcwozere.co.uk/xanthus/sharky/5.html

Since its on with a broker, a silly offer isn't going to offend if you also imply that you wil drive up if its accepted.

Yes, valid. You bought a new boat, built to your spec. Any 2nd hand boat is about compromise, especially in that price range. To find one that ticks half of the boxes is not bad going. Ian's brief is relatively broad, but to start crabbing a particular boat on no.s of grab handles is gonna make it a long search. In my view.

Just watched that Avon not make near its reserve . Too many unknowns , they wan't 6000 for it . No pic or spec of trailer its been advertised for a while On B&O at 6750 . To me its a 5000 rib tops .

The blue osprey dive boat is ok , but I don't need to pay for all that dive gear and a 60 on that to me is way too small .

The other osprey YUK scrap heap challenge I reckon

Wasn't sure about the Tohatsu on the little one but looks ok .

Mikes ribcraft is superb But 13 grand is too much , unless I can sell the missus .

Now Roy and Alice behave , stop squabbling , I wouldn't choose orange but I can't choose it all at my budget . As for the seats good point , as soon as i start spending time sorting things like that I had just as well pay the extra for the right boat . Joys of being self employed .

The more I look the more Iam atracted towards the 4.8 ish boats , they seem to be cheper so I get a much newer boat for my money . Older than 2000 to me is a liability .

Agreed, YUK. Numbers on the tubes look like someone wrote the hull serial number on with a marker pen, hmm nice . Fin on the engine suggests its a little stern heavy perhaps.

Don't forget some of the dealers too, BHG in the New Forest & Dave Crawford in Lymington often have interesting boats at sensible prices.

Very nice:

The numbers on the side look like the boats serial number, the colour choice is awful and again theres not much seating, that Mariner 60HP looks very much like a 2stroker to me. Bear in mind that the Humber 'Assault' is a shallower V so not as capable as say a Ribcraft 4.8m or a Osprey. I believe Roy had a Humber Assault before Voyager and he didn't keep it long.
