Looking to buy a RIB in Portsmouth area.

Good afternoon all
I am looking to buy a second hand RIB in the Solent area for use in the Solent. I would want to use it when it is a bit choppy as well as when calm so it would need to handle well. I am considering 6-7 m with 150 hp !
I have a budget of £15 k (ish).
Any advice would be welcome.

Thank you.

Hard enough to find the Right Boat....without limiting yourself to specific area
With the decent investment your making I'd say you may need to do a little more Homework and be prepared at least, to travel,to get the best deal,and Boat for your money.
You'll may find somthing local that's adequate for now..then relise later ..All RIBS are not the same
Good luck and enjoy the process.

It's Seawork this week in Southampton. There will be quite a few RIBs there albeit new.

It might give you some ideas.
