5m Dive rib wanted

Afternoon all,

I'm still on the lookout for a 5m deep-v hulled RIB which can be used for taking a few (max 4) divers out. Something like a humber destroyer \ tornado \ xs would be ideal, in the range of about 4.8 - 5.3m (no bigger!), and it would need to have the engine and trailer included. My budget is about 4.5-5k depending on what's included, so if anyone knows of anything suitable I'd be really interested.

I'm based in Glasgow, so local is better but I'm happy to travel if need be for a decent boat. This is also going to be my first RIB, so I'm not looking for any project boats quite yet!

thanks,
Zan

I thought it might be too, but it's waaaaay out of my price range sadly. I can potentially stretch to about 7k at a push, but def not as high as 14k as nice a boat as that looks!

Don't know if these are any good but it's young and might come in on budget?

There was a Humber Assault listed by a dive club on here, think it was 5.5m though.

Good luck with the search.

Here's one that might fit the bill under 5k mark.
