I know of a Avon Searider 5.4 that comes with a 1998 ( i think) Mariner 50 2-stroke. It does 27 knots. Steering systems needs some TLC otherwise is fine, considering age. I blevieve trailer as well.

All for 1500,

it is situated here in Jersey C.I. tho

The 4m Searider is for sale at Sea Ventures, Hamble Point Marina - 01703 455 333, however when I went by yesterday some one was onboard and the for sale sign removed so it may have been sold. It has been there for some time and is in excellent condition on a trailer.

The avons at Babcocks are in a very tired state which i why they are still there. They are of the type the Police and Customs use for coming up alongside and boarding vessels. The tubes were completely flat when I looked at them but repairable and the steering would need replacement or alot of TLC. My advice on price was if you are interested they would take an offer to ger rid of.

The arctics were in really bad condition.

Have you tought of getting a really nice Flatacraft Force 5 - this is a much better boat than the Avon 4m, I used to have one, it is too short - the sea comes all over the front.

Thanks gavin but this is maybe a little too far, i spoke to babcocks, apparently one of the sea-riders there has gone and the other one won't go for anything less than a grand!!! These sea-riders i know are in a bit of a state!! Oh well.... the search continues!!
