Guys this is about value for money. A trade off. You can get 8m boats for the same price of a 4m of some builders but I don't think it would last long. The most competitve market is the 5.5m to 6m one (Family Car)

Its not down to what you want to use it for cause you'd expect to pay more readies for a commercial spec and get a correspondingly better spec and higher price.

Totally subjective, but regarding your request for views on best looking Ribs you don't have to have owned a particular RIB to have a view on looks and these are mine:

1. RIBEYE 750/765
2. Scorpion
3. Revenger
4. Solent
5. Coastline
6. ProSport
7. V-Type

Ok as was said at the start of this thread, I would vote for XS as I did a lot of shopping about and for value for money could not find anything better....unless you know different

Took me months to find the boat that best suited my requirements. Chose the Osprey, more than pleased with it in all depts. Surely Ferryman (a la' St. Ives) must feature in someone's list.

I've got a pretty high opinion of Avon having recently sold a 30 year old 9 ft SIB that my dad owned and used constantly from new as a yacht tender.
We put it through hell and it still didn't have any patches on the tubes when I sold it.

That and where I launch in Poole, Seariders are the predominant rib in use.Last week there were 5 of them including mine in a row waiting to launch-some dating back to the mid 70's and still in good order with no major repairs.

Wonder how many of the others will last that long...
