Something in the 6 meter range

Hi folks (back again)

I did a lot of water sports last year with the kids (typical inboard speedboat) and while the family all liked it; we all missed the rib!

I am seeking something in the 6 meter range in essence I donít want to have to buy a 4 wheel drive to tow it and while we will be on the river for some of the time I also want to take it to the rough stuff. My budget is a max of £10K or less and would prefer a 4 stroke/opti re fuel economy. I am not opposed to doing some refurb work whether it be rewiring, mechanicals and or upholstery etc!

Probably something like the Ribeye 6m/115 hp would suit as it has jockeys and little bit of comfort seating!

Great to have the multiple eyes of Ribnet watching and signposting!

Suggestions welcome

DJ

Hi There

Thanks for your message and perhaps the title for the thread was a little misleading as anything over 6 mts is just too big for me.

I am seeking something between 5.5 & 6.0 and I have now increased my budget, typical models in view are the Humber 5.8, Ribcraft 5.85 or Osprey... with dual cruise etc.

Thanks again and all the best with your sale!
