rib for around 5000

Hi all. Just looking aroune for a rib that can take rough weather but also be used for just pottering around in. I would prefer something over 5.5m. I'm looking to spend around 5000 but may increase if I get a job. Not looking to buy for a month and A bit but just seeing what was available.



Cammy

Cammy. Not sure of prices but we have a Ribtec 585 with Yam 100 that is amazing in Solent chop and bigger seas than we anticipated it would be if you can find one. Great handling and sea going capability for under 6 metre.

An RC 585 for 5k probably wouldn't have an engine or possibly a trailer either.
