Wanted 6.5m to 7.8m Ribcraft or Vipermax

Looking for a Ribcraft, or Osprey Vipermax between 6.5 and 7.8m.
Might even consider a Ribquest.

Prefer Jockies and rear bench layout.
single 4 Stroke outboard only.

I guess that means I couldn't persuade you to consider a Vipermax 6.8m with an Evinrude ETEC outboard. From my own personal experience I've found the ETECs to be excellent engines...

Go as big as you can, for a number of reasons inc seakeeping, stability and space. Many moons ago I went from a 6.6m to a 8m, different worlds on the water. Good luck
