Some where in that range though, there has been a few suggestions or pointers to 6m and just over boats that are within the price target.
Most right enough are 5.8 to 6 which is ideal

About as far away as you can get. No idea about condition, but proof twins can be done in your budget: http://www.findafishingboat.com/bwm/ad-72128

I am selling a 6m Ring in for sale section. 7500. So enough change for new upholstery, electronics and maybe a newer trailer.

Had seen that.
What is the thought on make.
My understanding is they are maybe not the best, with very little shear and therefore fine in flat water but not really the kind of boat i would be looking at.

I've never been on a BWM so can't speak from experience. However as I understand it they share some heritage with Parker (and some others) who Ive never heard anyone question their sea keeping.

No one has really mentioning weight when towing. A 6.5 is going to be on a 2t. My 5.85 is on a 1.5t and weighs 1.4t. Just worth taking into account what weight you can tow.

I'd always choose the largest boat possible within budget constraints, - primarily for usable space and better sea-keeping. The difference between a 5.5 and 6.5 in seas is significant, I recently went from a 6.5 to a 8m and there worlds apart in capability, oh, and screw the cost, you only live once
