Question Rinker boats

Customer of mine is looking at a Rinker 342 Fiesta Vee. Im not sure of the particlars and know nothing of these boats. Anyone know anything about these boats or another brand he should be looking at. Is there another MB I should post that is more condusive to cruisers.

The Baja dealer here that I use is also a Rinker dealer. I have looked at several. They seem to be a good quality boat. I have a friend with a 23 foot family open bow and they have some real nice touches and are built well. If he likes the boat and the price I don't think he would be disappointed.

www.boatered.com is a good place to put a question like this. You should do a search for rinker on the "Ask the surveyor" board. I know I've seen them talked about by the surveyor who moderates that board. He says that they are a decent value in that segment.

Thanks for the help. That boatered.com site is painfully slow, I forget how good we have it here on OSO.
Ill pass the info on

I have an older Rinker 250 Fiesta Vee. It is nothing fancy, but it is a well made boat, and holding up very well. We use it for weekend trips. As far as cruisers go, you get a lot of bang for the buck compared to searays etc.
