How about this ?
That looks like a reasonable package, it will be good for around 30knots with that motor so not as fast as you are used to but will handle and chop better than a sports boat. I think those 2 stroke Selva motors are OMC, but not sure, I know the newer four strokes are yamaha based.

If you do a search on 'Avon Adventure 4m', then you may find some info on the boat listed in post 1. Avon didn't brand them 'Adventure' back then, but it's the same boat.
Blackroady on here has one with a Yam 4-stroke. May be worth asking him - I recall he quite likes it for pottering about on.
Problem with 4m RIBs is the lack of deck space, especially when they're rigged as this one is. If you could find something nearer 5m, then you'll probably find it better suits your requirements.
