Apologies if I'm incorrect but that looks very much like a scam listing to me. It has all the hallmarks of one at least (specs without much personal description, location, delivery option, single picture free advert). I would say do your checks first, before paying.

Worth a phone call to see what's going on there.

Not a Searider

The craft shown in the image is NOT a Searider I think it is a Avon Rib 400 so compared to the Searider it is a VERY shallow V hull, in fact just a hard hull version of the same craft as the 400 Avon Sportsboat SIB

I do not question the value just point out it is not a Searider and with a shallow hull and low bow not an obvious boat for the west of Scotland, but it will tow a skier !

Incorrect. You can see the flooding hull hole. It's a Searider.

Maybe it is a Searider, it is an Outhill console, unusual in a Searider as are white tubes with the trim they have and no bailer tube, the plate will say what it is, I see what you mean about the hole, my poor old eyes are just not up to the job any more !

Nice bit of backtracking!

It's a converted SR4 Deluxe (the type with a 'bonnet', 'dashboard' and bucket seats). You can tell from the grey hypalon patches on the forward part of the tube tops, where the 'dashboard' has been removed. This is why it has an aftermarket console & no trunk on the transom - most of the deluxe boats had a moulded GRP deck with a drain plug at the aft end which could be removed to drop any water on the deck into the hull void and out through the big hole in the transom.
