My Humber Attaque 5.3 will be for sale in the spring, and when i get the top mounts on the outboard done. Don't know how much of a hurry you're in.

Elderly boat (1993) but it had a lot of work done by the previous owner. PM me for details if you want 'em.

I'm just starting the build on the McMillan "doner" rib. Regulars will know she is a ribtec 535 in need of some repairs. The basic hull and tubes, however are VGC and you should view the fact that the deck is coming up as a very good thing because we can inspect it all and put a new one down !!

This could be within budget on a trailer with the right engine.

You'd get a choice of layout too, as it'll be a bare boat soon enough.

I haven't measured, but I'm assuming 5.35m. She isn't a true deep V, but I've had one before and it punched well above its weight (length) in a chop.

I originally thought id be doing this for myself but my diesel rib project has arrived so I'm doing it to move it on before I start the next "proper" project...

Someone can probably link to the photos... I'm on my iPhone and haven't worked out how to do that not at the PC.

Out with budget by a couple of grand, and located west coast of Scotland. For the right boat you'll have to travel. Hopefully it's a one off journey anyway.

5.85mt - FAFB

You guys...


Spartacus, thanks for the link - not sure this is an ideal one for me I'm afraid.


Low Flyer, that would be spot on - just the kind of boat I'm looking for (plus a bit!). Sadly I can't stretch my budget that far. I'm looking for a boat to use as a coach boat for our sailing fleet over the winter so it's not even properly for pleasure use!

Does it have to be as big as 5.5 metres if it's going to be used for coaching?

You would get a very good Avon SR4 within budget. I know you are worried about the flooding hulls, but they can be easily blocked off if required, and for coaching the flooding hull is a big asset as it gives a really stable platform at rest and at displacement speeds. Southampton Watersports Activities Centre use a fleet of SR4's as coaching boats.

Thanks, Chris.


The 4m is fine for the coaching side of things but we found that it was a little small when carrying large marks with a few people on board to set up racing courses etc.
