Wanted: 5-6 Meter Rib 75hp+

Hi I am looking for a 5-6m rib. Something along the lines of a Searider 5.4. Preferably with a 75-90hp max. Would like a jockey seat configuration with a road trailer. Cheers

Don't mind 'em mate, it's the bad weather - it makes 'em fractious. You're posting in the right spot, if possibly at the wrong time of year. Something will turn up.

2004 Searider 5.4m with Yammie 90hp and auxilliary 4hp, A-frame, etc... please form an orderly queue!
Avon Searider - FAFB

Not sure about the claimed top speed of 55mph?

Also something a little older (2001). Pretty sure this is North West Trading (Ellon).

Thanks, for the links guys. I have also opened my search up to Humber & Ribcraft. Ideally would like a 5.3 or 5.8m Ribcraft, ones I have found look tired and worn out sadly. What are Valiant ribs like? Ideally I would like a deep v hull, most of its use will be around the Solent and possibly Falmouth/Fowey.

Many Thanks

Ideally around 6000, I guess thats too little for a RC 5.85 though. Hopefully someone can suggest?
