Wanted Tornado 4-6m RIB

Hi,

I'm looking for a 4.8-5.5m RIB for use as a rescue boat, 40-90HP engine 2 or 4 stroke, I'm happy to retube if this is required.

Anything considered, but must be a Tornado between 4.8 & 5.5 meters

Cheers

budget is 1-5k depending on variables

Tornado because it has very good slow speed manoeverability, is dry at speed & in chop and is easy to pull sail boats into

What else should I consider as a sail rescue boat ?

Cheers,

Dave.

Maybe Humber, Ribeye or Ribcraft? Maybe the only problem will be the budget.

Saw the ebay one and spoke to the guy, sounds good, just don't have the time to go to cornwall before it closes, otherwise its the right sort of thing.

Considered the offer for your 4.8, it looks fantastic, trouble is 'er in doors has only cleared 5k for my mid life crisis purchase, I know, I should have started by asking for a motorbike...
