Keep looking Bob - they are out there but Spartacus is right - they can be quite a hunt - however ours cost 4k and is a cracking little Searider - no regrets and worth waiting for - we saw some real rubbish for much more money

Good luck

Not sure if this is a stock ad or if it's still for sale. http://www.ribsforsale.com/detail-81...speed+boat.htm (Slightly over budget).
