Avon Searider 5.4 rebuild

Back in 2014, we purchased a lovely Avon Searider 5.4 from "barrowboy" on this forum. At the same time we were having our Atlantic 21 totally refurbished by Henshaws - https://www.rib.net/forum/f8/atlanti...ild-66342.html

Well, after 5 seasons of hard work, looking after the Nisos Yacht Charter bareboat yacht charter fleet in the Ionian, it was the Seariders turn for a major make over.

This time, we decided to do the work inhouse. Laurie Campbell, who is a bit of an expert with Hypalon, took on the project and with the help of a few local contractors did an amazing job.

We purchased a new tube kit from Henshaws, and transformed her, with the same look as her sister, "IRA" the Atlantic 21.

Very pleased with the end result.

As she was when we first bought her in 2014
