I am also looking at a new RIB. Aluminium has a significant weight advantage, but I presume the thin aluminimum used on yacht RIB's cannot usually be welded, making repairs difficult. (note pvc is also almost impossible to repair)
A friends 1 year old Aquapro is falling apart, so I would avoid this brand.
