Default Looking to purchase a RIB

Hello everyone, I'm looking to purchase a 22' rib or close to that size. A little bigger is fine. If anyone knows of one please send me the info. The RIB can be a few years old with good power. I've search yachtworld, ribs for sale, etc. hoping someone on here knows of one. Something on the east coast,

Look int a Caribe I owned a 21 footer that I beat the living Chit out of in the Commercial parasailing business back in the day,
I Have a good friend that I used to sail his 53 foot ketch for years that purchased a 20foot Novurania for about twice the price as the Caribe . Yea it was fancy but it didn't hold up any better than the Caribe at half the price. Also they wiil retube an older model of theirs for a very very reasonable price which makes it like new.

Why the need for a inflatable? If you don't need it as a tender it is a high maintenance boat to own if you don't specifically need it.

Protectors are bad rides. I don't know of any specifically but would give you a # to a friend who deals them in mass if you'd like.

C.l. Boston has a few nice ones 20'+ from $13g to $78g
Good luck. They are fun boats.
