If you’re still after a rib with your 10k/ish budget then would recommend looking at this. Linked earlier in the thread but saw it in the flesh at the boat show yesterday and definitely worth considering.
Originally a 5m Bombard which has been fully refurbished/refitted to as new by XS Ribs with hull refinished and flow coated, new tubes, new Mariner 60, controls etc. plus new trailer and all warranted. Re-plated as a 2019 XS-Ribs 5.0m Rib.
Whilst perhaps not a very deep V hull, ride should still be ok and with rear of tubes in water at rest will give a stable platform for fishing. Lots of open deck space behind the small forward console giving room for a large cool box cum bench seat, again ideal for fishing.
Effectively a brand new rig.
Rigid Hull Inflatable Boats, Up to 4.8M length
