There is nothing wrong with two strokes, but traditional two strokes have not been generally available new in the UK for over ten years, but are simple tech so quite reliable and easily maintained. The downside beyond age, is they are rather inefficient so will burn about 20% more each day...

New two stroke technology (direct injection like Etecs) achieves similar efficiency to four strokes, but has better low rev torque and the very long service intervals on etecs make them popular with owners. They do have their haters though.

In terms of size, for that many people to be comfortable you are probably looking at close to 6m.

RIBase
That appears to only have 2 seats you can use when in motion unless it's flat calm. You really need a jockey seat per person if you're going to have 4 people aboard every time.

You probably need to raise your budget a bit.

We are family of 5 (and kids are teenagers now) and we use now setup: 2 jockey seats and rear bench for 3. I do recommend such setup for 4-5 people.
Below example picture from Ribeye website:



Now we have usually 2 more guests on the boat so I'm thinking to upgrade for 2x2 jockey seats and rear bench for 3:



for me seats on the bow or in front of the console are good when you moor or on flat water

A four stroke or a modern DI two stroke would do a lot better than that.

I don't think your budget is that far off, but the right boat will take a bit of finding.
Being prepared to look nationally rather than locally will help.
