safety boat

Looking for RIB suitable for use as safety boat for a Sea Scout group. Sailing in either in sheltered areas e.g. Poole Harbour or less than 1 mile offshore.

I imagine something like a 4.5m RIB, but any other suggestions?

Hi Duncan
If you can find a Tornado 4.8m they make great sailing safety boats, more space and stability than the 4.5m different hull design.
Stick a 50HP fourstroke on the back and you've got a great little package, with a 40HP still good!

ideal safety boat 4.7 35hp

hello,
I still have my zodiac pro fitted with loads of stuff and very few hours on the engine. Will consider reducing the cost slightly and would be prepared to take the gps off and discount by 300 squids as a result.
5650 ono less the gps if you like
goes well, very stable loves tickover and is very economical

whole lot is very very tidy indeed.
