5.8m - 6.5m <£8,000
I've just had an engine failure on my Searider that means I need to repower. When I first got the boat it was great - but it turns out that my family enjoy it too so I might take the opportunity to change to something slightly more fit for this new purpose as well. The main use is still as a support and coach boat, though, hence my requirements.
I'm looking for a 5.8m - 6.5m boat ideally with a good hull form for the sea, so a ribcraft, humber (not assault), delta, osprey type of boat ideally. I'm not too keen on valiants or apexs.
I'd ideally like double jockeys, side by side or in line, or a delta triple. I don't mind looking at other layouts but having the driving position at the back is no good for me, likewise having a single seat unless the price allows me to change this.
I'm not precious about single or twin outboards (mindful of budget) but I'd really like 4-strokes. The only 2s I'd consider are Yamaha, tohatsu or optimax with a service record.
I'd like a trailer but again am mindful of the budget so I don't desperately need one. Providing I have a way of getting it to Cornwall in the first place I'm ok!
I'm also not bothered if a boat has been well used providing that it's been looked after.
Has anyone got anything in mind?!
Thanks, as always, for your help.
