Hi, thats my vid and I had that rib a few years ago. Its a solid boat. The hull is built tough and should last a while. I had all the valves replaced and the tubes were in good shape when it left my hands. What do you plan on doing with it? Its a perfect cruising Rib. Really stable. The 533 is a bit of a harsh ride and slaps pretty good due to the hull shape but if you take it easy its fine. 11K is a good price. I sold it for more than that and it looks like the current owners put some work into it with the new electrical and electronics.

What a small world! Thanks so much for the reply.

I plan on using it for offshore fishing. How does it handle swell? Thank you so much for your quick reply.

It handled them fine. I took that RIB out in some hairy waters and felt perfectly safe. There are a few others on here who had/have a 530/533 too, they might chime in with their experiences.

Nice! I tried to do key word on 533 but nothing came out. Do you who else has them? Thanks so much for your input. Really appreciate it.

Off the top of my head I know "cgoing" had one, looks like he sold it.

Zodiac Pro 530

You can see his pics with the different console to get a feel of how you can set it up.

Have you considered a 5.4 Searider? There is a nice one for sale down in your area.
