4.5m to 5m RIB Wanted - Up to 7000

I'm looking for a 4.5 to 5 metre RIB for family use. Maximum size is 5 metres due to storage issues. Our preference would be for a jockey seat and bench seat and it needs to be tidy and ready to use. I'm the worlds worst DIY'er unfortunately so this isn't a project. I can take care of what I have, but lack the skills to repair anything. I know my limits. ;-)

If anybody knows of anything, or has any suggestions they would be greatly appreciated. Within reason I can travel anywhere in the UK for the right boat.

Cheers. :-)

Thanks for the offer but a bit too much work for me, and also slightly longer than I'm looking for.

I'm looking for something that's ready to go straight on to the water as I'm all thumbs and unfortunately don't have the skill set to buy something that needs working on. I wish I did, I admire all you handy types. :-)

We're still keeping the Humber but we want another RIB as well. If we could find something similar to the Humber that would be perfect as we love it. :-)

If we find something before the Anglesey cruise we'll bring the Humber, and the new (2nd hand) RIB as well.

Trying to fit a big family on the one boat was just about ok last year on our holiday, but this year there's even more of us going so we need another one. My plan is to hopefully get more use out of them this year. :-)

Ribcraft 585 and Zodiac 5m here within budget. Doesn't have the seating configurations you're looking for though.

tubes are better than pics suggest and engine is superb, less than 100 hours from new.
