what boat then?

Ok im after a different boat,

spend between £15k-£25K must be a minimum 25ft hull, something with good seakeeping, go over 55mph and have a soft ride. Was gonna get a rib but im opening my eyes to other things a little... seen some shakespeares, mohawks etc nice but couldnt afford to run twin petrols unless they were priced to allow for a diesel conversion..

Any ideas

glen

Well over budget but THE TITS! Posts on here as Megalomaniac, and the boat is a diesel extreme (Ring) 26 as built by Tony Davis I believe.

It confuses the f*ck out of me, every boat I build ends up for sale for more money than I sold it for.

Perhaps it's time to cash in my shares and invest in some of my boats!!!!!

There's gotta be some cudos in demand exceeding supply sufficiently to elevate used boat prices above that of newuns.
Usually reserved for the most exclusive automobiles.
