Excel Ribs - Virago 520 Thinking of Buying

Generally I never tend to buy new but am sort of thinking about it.

As you know I have several boats and have the urge for a slightly bigger rib (My biggest Rib is 4.5m) I don't want to go loads bigger as I like to be able to launch it easily on my own from time to time. I also want a boat with a modern looking interior. This will not be used for diving and will be in reasonable off shore water. Want to be able to get a few more people on board with some comfort..... ie not sitting on the tubes

I know that the excel range of Sibs are finding favor on here but wondered about their Ribs.

I am looking at the Virago 520

Or possibly the Virago 470

One thing I like is they look quite roomy

Has anyone got either of these boats or know much about them

I don't own a Excel rib, but do own a Sib. In this currently climate with social distancing have you considered called excel and asking for video walk round or video call of the 470/520?
