Don't start pissing on my chips now Dai; I haven't even had the thing in the water yet! Believe me, this was the only thing I saw even remotely in budget that I'd even consider.
Ohh beat me to it.

Have a look at my website link below, be surprised what 5k can buy you

And there was a Ring 6m for 5k, but we're still talking double the OP's budget.

Less than that in fact. Here you go: rib valiant dr600 yamaha 150hp dive rescue | eBay

Digressing slightly, this has to be bargain of the year: USED TORNADO 8.5m Rib Inflatable Boat 2 x F90 HONDA Outboard Motor FOR REPAIR | eBay Unfortunatly despite clicking buy it now I didn't get it as they had already sold it but left it on there

An engine with no boat?

Edit: or a yacht tender?

To be fair that Valiant might fit OP's bill, but it's not a "4m+ rib".

Lol, was thinking more along the lines of a 6m rib with 2004 150hp and trailer, fully loaded but yes I see where your coming from

They are out there, you've just got to look harder

You said look at your site below. I don't see the 6m 2004 rib etc on there. That was my point. Not having a go.

But I see your point; at a shade over 4k that valiant is prolly a decent punt. But it's losing air and the braked trailer doesn't have any brakes. So if you have the time and the skill and the money to put that right then it's a (potential) good deal. If you've got 5k to put a boat in the water and you live 250 mile from the seller then it looks like a bit more of a stretch.

But this thread isn't about whether I bought the wrong boat for 5k, it's about whether the OP can get a serviceable "4m+ RIB" for 2400. Which I still maintain is a bit of an ask. Specially if he's in S Yorks and 75% of the stuff he's going to want to look at is on the south coast.

Well made points. I'm not questioning if you bought incorrectly. Far from it. I found the 6m one though, see below

Point is they are out there on any budget. You've done it the best way though in terms of having the option of replacing the motor at a later date if required. The main thing is to get the right boat, especially if the budget is tight.
