Would something like that be under the 750kg's non braked trailer limit?

4m, yes. SR5.4, maybe,if it's empty.
5.8m? Highly unlikely. If I was offered a 5.8m that came in at under 750kg on a trailer, I'd be questioning the build quality.

I'd suggest a 4.4m Frig with Waymarine Gaydar. Currently very popular on this site.

Wrong time of year to be looking for any amazing bargains, but 3k should buy a nice little rib in the winter market.

Go for something like a Dell Quay Sportsman and go as far out as you like!
Or a refurbished (professionally) Aircraft 5.2 with a mint 2001 yanah 40 4 stroke on a cheap but servicable trailer. I have one that is taking up space if you are interested Its surpisingly nippy with the 40 and cheap to run

This is a very small RIB but it sure looks a lot of fun and would be nippy as hell:

Ribcraft RIB for sale , Ribcraft 3.8 Metre - Boats And Outboards

Dealer pricing though so you'll get a lot more boat for your money in the classifieds on here.
