Thanks everyone for your offers but I have now purchased Chris Stevens cherished 2008 Osprey Vipermax 6.5. It has taken ALL my money so I won't be looking at any other boats now thanks,

Lester

Since you are an instructor, will this be the first coded VM?

Good job on the purchase though, great boat

There are plenty of Falcons which is the commercial brother to the VM in commercial applications, and bar a couple in Belgium / Holland and Marcus 4 near us, I don't know of any in UK.
