Requirements are as per current rib, family boat, Solent running, Bit of towing, mainly day tripping, sunbathing/picnic area and plenty of storage.
Probably keep around sort of engine size - up to 200
As always would appreciate any thoughts or sage advice
Should be fine with that Budget...may take a "little" time to find the right model/spec that exactly suits...in the meantime try as many Rigs as you can...and don't be tempted compromise! something will come along that ticks all the boxes....Try to enjoy the process...and learn all you can along the way,you may even modify your shopping list.
Like cars...there's always another Boat!
