Zodiac Searider

Can you still buy a new Searider in the UK these days and, if so, how much would the 4.7m model be? Does anyone know what changes were made when it was rebranded as a Zodiac product?

I wouldn't even go there. When the quote pings through, I'll guarantee that you'll be spraying coco all over the monitor.

Agreed, it's ugly.

All good stuff, thanks. I agree about the rear of the tubes, otherwise a great looking boat, very tempting. Of course, quite an expensive package but then they are great, well built boats and it'd probably last longer than me too (which is hopefully still quite long).

I think they thought those weird ends might help get over the hump and on the plane a bit faster?

The 6m Avon Seariders we used offshore got up on the plane very quickly, even with 4 people on board, the self-righting gear etc. Nice boats.
