Rib wanted 5.4 to 7 metres

Hi, looking for something suitable for coastal excursions. Hence engine must be bulletproof(preferably low hours)and Hull must be suitable. Don't really want to have to do any work other than maybe add seats or extra battery etc. Ideally in Scotland but will go anywhere mainland uk for the right boat.
Budget approx 5-7k
Anything out there?

Bad news fella, your budget is a bit shy for your list of requirements.

You may find a 5-5.5m within budget, but 'low hours' is a big ask.

Just a tip, a 2m difference in length re. rib length is massive. To say 'I'm looking at 5-7m' is akin to 'I'm looking for a small family hatch of a Landcruiser' Add to that a tight budget and it may pay to stick around the 5m and not waste fuel on viewing 6m+ shaggers.

Yep. Be VERY careful of project boats, particularly ones that look like they don't need much work. It's always 10x what you think,parts are 3x what you think and you need 3x as many of them as you think
