Wanted 5m+ deep V hull rib either full boat or cheap project

I'm looking for a 5m+ rib with a deep v hull so it can cope with the solent chop and inshore use.

Very interested in a searider 5.4 or similar humber, tornado, ribtec, ribcraft, ribeye, etc etc

Budget is in the region of 3000 possibly more but would have to be complete boat for top end of budget with engine.

Anything considered but has to be deep v type

Projects willing to take on as well as I can design the boat how I want it then.

Right increasing my budget slightly to 4000 to 4500 but this would need to be a boat that was ready to go and in good condition with reasonably young engine.

My primary boat that I'm looking for is a Searider 5.4 as it has a very deep hull but if there are other boats out there that have as a deep hull I'm interested in them as well.

Or if anyone has a bare 5.4 searider hull I'm interested as well as I can always get the boat retubed.

Busting your budget, but this look sweet!

Avon Sea Rider 5.4 with Mercury 90 on Rolls Aluminium Trailer

I think it was restored by Ribraf

Tell her the more expensive already refurbed one will work out cheaper in the long run (which is most probably true)

The problem is once you get into that type of price bracket it also brings in a lot of other boats that are close to the price but just slightly more and it keeps going.

So becomes a never ending hole of justifying more money.

So had to draw the line somewhere
