You could do a lot worse than something like this:

Nicely laid out with nothing too quirky, sensible engine and a very good hull shape that will keep you smiling.

It would be pretty close to your budget if you left the trailer out of the deal.

Bit smaller than you wanted but is in mint condition and comes with trailer would also make an idea first boat. What would you be using the RIB for?

It is a little small and I need a bench seat as well. I have a 2 year old and one on the way so need a little more room!
