Welcome to the forum.

2,400 is going to buy you nothing but trouble, especially if it's your first boat. You might have to increase your budget some what, or look at a SIB instead.

This is local to you but out of budget. Pennine Marine Ltd > 1996 ZODIAC PRO 11 (470) RIB

This is local to me, but possibly bigger than you want with a brute of an engine.

Hello


NATHEN K has an Avon 4M searider package on here for 2,400 so smack on budget. Search the ribs for sale section (as I've not worked out how to link to it

I searched Avon 4M and it came up.

Hope that helps

This time of year there are loads of bargains so that's not really correct. There was a really tidy 4m Searider that finished on ebay last night for 2300. Engine wasn't the newest, but the rest of the boat looked really tidy and trouble free: 4Mtr Avon searider | eBay

If you keep your eyes open I think you'd be surprised quite what you can pick up for your money.
