6m to 7m RIB around 15-17k

Hey all

I'm on the search for a 6m to 7m RIB around 15-17k
I'm keen on an engine from a manufacturer still in business (!) so no Evinrude/Johnsons, and must be under 500 hours.
Needs to seat at least 6x, ideally 8x (such as twin double jockeys, and a rear bench).
Nice to haves: Towing A-Frame, anchor locker, VHF, decent trailer
Based south coast but will travel if needed.

please get in touch asap!
Cheers
J

You're going to have to be looking at an older boat that's been re-engine'd and I'd imagine you'll have to do something about the seating to configure it for your use. However.....you won't get a 6mtr that'll seat 8 and you won't get a 7mtr with a sub 500hr engine for that money. The engine is going to be a 200HP+ and worth too much for the lot to go for that money. You do get 6.5/150s that would be in your budget but I'd expect to have to do a bit of research and be willing to travel nation wide.
