Looking for a deal on a 14-22 foot RIB

I'm new to the forum. I'm interested in RIBs because I can tow them with almost any vehicle and fuel costs are low.

I'm looking for an inexpensive way to get a RIB I can use for ocean diving and to take my kids wakeboarding on the lake. I live in Southern California.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Welcome to Ribnet

First suggestion is to make your mind up as to exactly what size boat you want and how much you want to spend-there's potentially a $30,000 price gap and up to 2 tonnes between the sizes you've posted.

Thanks Nos4r2, I'm looking for a boat that can get three divers out to the islands on a day with good conditions. I'm guessing a 15 to 18 foot boat would be ideal. The problem is I can't afford the boat I want...I'm considering buying a 12 footer starter boat for now since I might be able to get a great deal on it. I'm aware a 12 footer won't hold more than two divers with minimal gear.
