Wanted 5.5m-6.5m RIB

Hi,

I'm looking for a RIB between 5.5m and 6.5m for a family of 4 (with two young kids), very occasionally 6 people.
Seating arrangements I'm thinking about: double console with either two jockey seats or one bench, additional bench on the stern (two seats either side of the engine also acceptable), suicide seat (either single or double) and the bow seat if possible.
Most of the boats are with 2x2 jockey seats which might not be the most convenient to keep the little ones under control.
Ideally fuel tank in the hull, I don't want a 6.5m RIB with 1h worth of fuel.
Needs to be on a trailer.

What I'm not sure about is if deep-V is more important than a really wide boat - I don't yet know how we'll be using it, time will tell. I am assuming that after 2-3 years we will make our minds up what is the "perfect" boat that fits all of our requirements.

We would like to (at least once!) camp somewhere, so there needs to be enough storage for some basic camping equipment.

Should be below 10k.

Thanks Gledhill and JUSTLOOKING for the posts, but I think I need more seating (I'd like to fit four persons behind the console and occasionally two in front).

On Gledhill's Aircraft you could always fit a bench seat like on mine and also fit a icebox come seat in front of the console giving seating for 5👍

Jerry,

Something like this?
2 single jockeys, double bench and suicide seat for two at a squeeze
It's quite a wide boat too.
PM me if interested in viewing, the boat is in Waltham Abbey so not too far from Cambridge

It looks like your requirements are similar to mine when have searched for boat. I think that you shall search for 2,4 wide having similar setup to mine:



I do not sell mine - just want to show you Family setup which is very good for my needs. Mine is 5,4m and GVW trailer is 1300 kg and it is optimum for my car.
My dream boat is Parker 650 (and it require 150 HP) but such setup is more expensive and it will exceed my car towing limit.
