You wont get 'proper' seating for 8 on a 6.5m rib. Suicde (console) seats are useless unless the boat is stationary. I put two of our kids on the console seat once, then promptly sold the boat for one with enough jockies.

Possibly 7 seats on this Ocean pro 6.5 ( 2 x triple jockeys? and 1 x console)

Would think 8 would be a real squeeze, but may just be possible with a double console and 2 x triple jockeys?

I think the 3 friends on the triple jockeys would be VERY good friends after taking a bit of rough water on those!

putting that many seats in a boat that size won't make for a very good boat at all, putting people behind you will make the helm to far fwd, it will be a bad ride when empty and you'll get wet, putting them in front of you will be better, when empty but you'll have to watch for following seas and flooding over the transom and the front will be flighty

This might suit if you added 4 extra pods or bench seats and with the weak euro comes in under budget
