New 250 or 300XS required

I have an enquiry for a 250 or 300XS and was wondering if anyone could recommend a good US source, or a UK one if there are any? New only please!

I prefer to deal with people who are known to be good suppliers - Thanks!

BOY! Do you do everything small.... Go big... V8 is what you need. Or single gas turbine. May I suggest a Pratt and Whitney or a General Electric. My boy works at Lockheed...

Thanks for the advice mate, I'm afraid that a gas turbine probably wouldn't be appropriate for one of our RIBs (see below)

Thanks Tony, just spoke to Burt at Mobile marine and he's still got it and that's not a bad price allowing for the fact that the exchange rate is going the wrong way for us at the moment!

Burty's a really good laugh and certainly knows his stuff, near you as well so surprise you haven't dealt with him previously.

Not sure why you think I don't know Burt, actually I do know him quite well, and have done business with him, I just didn't know he had a 300XS!

By the way he's very good with Verado's as well!
