This is the same boat thats been for sale on Boats and Outboards for some time

http://www.boatsandoutboards.co.uk/view/PAA3391

The name has been taken off from the sides and the trailer has been painted, the description is the same. In the pictures on B&O it shows no back seat, and is a few hundred quid cheaper. I dont know much about the engine but i think with the xr2 engines they need a lot of looking after are noisey and juicy but powerful, but not really practical for pleasure craft i understand. There are a lot of people with mixed emotions about these engines. Someone with more experience than me will be able to better advise. In the mean time type in xr2 in the search have a read up and make your own mind up. Other than that it looks a clean boat.

Mid section is late 80's ridgeback offshore mid . Powerhead looks to be same age but can't really tell from angle of pics . If you buy it make sure it's 200hp and not the earlier 150hp .

It says on B&O ad...

the engine was rebuilt last year with many new parts also comes with workshop manual spare piston rods bearings cylinder head etc

This might question the owner's faith? That bit would get my alarm bells ringing but thats just me being an old cynic
