Hi billic, normally I would fully agree with the way you're thinking - "I will visit a few dealers and look at as many as I can". I managed to do that at the end of the first lock down in June 2020, but even then there was very few dealers with SIBs.
Covid, Brexit, Staycations (being to hate the word!) has created a shortage of new SIBs and pushed up used prices to stupid levels. You may find it difficult to veiw SIBs at dealers as they may not have what your looking, or have any on display, or have any stock.
I would suggest you research as much as you can (the forum is a mine of information) and narrow your preferred choice down to 2 or 3 (not many SIBs are light and manageable at 3.8mtrs so it shouldn't take to much research) then contact dealers to see if there are any available.
