I apologise in advance for another slightly abstract question. I have started building up a picture of quality makes of RIB...I am just struggling to see whether to jump in at one price point, or hold off and save for a larger/better spec RIB.
For instance, member DM's Searider ( http://www.boatsandoutboards.co.uk/view/F224166
) looks a cracking little RIB to me. Newly refitted and good for trouble free boating for a few years. I am seriously considering this option (pending it still being avail.).
But then for a bit more, there is this RIBTEC 585 at Leeway ( http://www.boatsandoutboards.co.uk/view/LWC052
). I like the idea of more pods as I will occasionally have up to 4/5 in the boat, albeit mostly run with 2.
Up to the £9k+ bracket and then there is the likes of this Ribtec 655 ( http://www.boatsandoutboards.co.uk/view/F219374
)...which seems more like a real
A bit more again and I could have one of the Camel Trophy boats ( http://www.boatsandoutboards.co.uk/view/F214529
) which looks an awesome expedition boat....say should I want to go out to St Kilda or whatnot.
I suppose it's the eternal question...at what point to jump in. I'm just trying to gauge whether any 1 step up represents much better value or not. Also, resale value. Any one of these examples hold value better than the others...or are decent made ribs much of a muchness?
