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👍

It was fitted when built oracle. Ian at Liverpool Power Boats would be able to tell you where he got it from if interested 👍
