Ribquest 6.3

Hi folks,
Iím toying round with the idea of trading up to a 6-6.5m rib for more sea trips. I spotted an early looking Ribquest 6.3 for sale recently but I wasnít familiar with the brand. It has navy tubes with a yellow panel. It looks early 2000ís.
Are these earlier Ribquests any good? Are they deep or medium vee hulls?

My understanding is Ribquest changed hands in 2007.

I visited their Sheffield factory in 2009/2010 before I opted for Ribcraft, but ultimately it came down to price as I was rigging myself. Deep V hull, etc.

More details here:

Found this 5.3m for sale at Ash Marine:
Is that with or without VAT?
