5.0-5.5m RIB Wanted

Hi guys,

I'm on the hunt for a RIB to replace my Avon A450.

I'm looking for something between 5.0 and 5.5 metres.

Something with a deep hull, jockey seating and a proud bow would be ideal. The sort of boats I had in mind were the Humber Destroyer, Tornado and Delta Dash, but would consider other manufacturers.

I'd be looking to engine the boat myself, so a hull only would be perfect. Although I would consider something with an engine that I could remove and sell on separately.

Budget wise, I'm looking to spend up to 5k if it was a hull/console only. I know this would probably put me in an older boat, but so long as it meets the spec, I'd be quite happy.

Cheers, Alex
