4-4.5m Rib - 50hp +

Hi,
As the title suggests I'm after a 4 - 4.5m with 50hp +, ideally 4 stroke but would settle for a new-ish 2 stroke.

Must be hard wearing and good in rough seas (we've cracked several hulls)

Currently have a searider 5.4m which is fantastic just a little too big, a 4 or 4.7m SR would be good replacements but need to be in good nick.

Budget up to 6k

Anyone got anything?

Avon Adventurer and Selva. The Selva wasn't much of a surprise but we thought the Adventurer would be a little more tough. The searider is brilliant though

I have heard it before about the Avon adventurer.
I know someone who only had a 20hp fitted to his under advice from the dealer!!

I think most people will be fine on the Adventurer, ours was just put through a hard (short) life!
