You wont get 'proper' seating for 8 on a 6.5m rib. Suicde (console) seats are useless unless the boat is stationary. I put two of our kids on the console seat once, then promptly sold the boat for one with enough jockies.

Possibly 7 seats on this Ocean pro 6.5 ( 2 x triple jockeys? and 1 x console)

Would think 8 would be a real squeeze, but may just be possible with a double console and 2 x triple jockeys?

I think the 3 friends on the triple jockeys would be VERY good friends after taking a bit of rough water on those!

putting that many seats in a boat that size won't make for a very good boat at all, putting people behind you will make the helm to far fwd, it will be a bad ride when empty and you'll get wet, putting them in front of you will be better, when empty but you'll have to watch for following seas and flooding over the transom and the front will be flighty

This might suit if you added 4 extra pods or bench seats and with the weak euro comes in under budget

RIBase
This is a Parker 630 with 2 x 4 man jockey seats where each person has a back rest. The 630 has now been upgraded to 650 so the console will not be that much forward
Best engine the Verado 150 or the Verado 200 4 cyl

You will need however to increase your budget

Cobra Nautique

Have an 8.6 metre Cobra Nautique. Bought it to suit the family who grew tired of going to sea every day. Looking to downsize myself. Have a look on the Cobra website. Take it from me it's a great dry boat capable of 44 knots when driving on on your own. Well capable of heavy seas as well tested off the south coast of Ireland. Good trips around the Mizen and Fastnet Rock but the usual trek is between Cork Harbour and Kinsale. Have a look and give me a mail if you have any queries. seankellykelco@yahoo.com
Regards
Sean Kelly
