WANTED: 4.5 to 6m meter rib

Hi,

The Seafox has been sold so I am finally looking for my first rib!
My Budget is varied but it is around the 3-3.5 mark but could go up to 4.5 if it had a DFI or EFI engine.
Must have a Deep-vee
I live in Hampshire and something reasonably local is needed as I can't drive! no more than 3-4ish hours away.
I am really looking for something I could use straight away

My ideal boat would be a 5.4 Sea rider

there are plenty cheap ribs around but they all seem to be in scotland!

Many thanks

Nathan

Yep he has had great fun out of it but has bought a bigger boat.
It is in usable condition & could do with a bit of fettling, the tubes have been painted & the hull has been blocked off, will do 30+ knots & very frugal on fuel.

We have a 4.8m Zodfiac Yachtline with 75 etec on the back its a great little rib and is ideal for round salcombe to dartmouth.
Let me know if your interested - comes with a trailor as well and is never kept in the water after use, washed down and flushed thru all the time.
