Maximum size for dinghy / rib on Lagoon 450

We are just in the process of buying an L450 and am looking for some advice on Ribs. We would like to have the biggest rib that can fit safely and with the best performance possible (within sensible limitations!).

We are not sure:
1) how much weight the davits could/ should cope with?

2) how much space there is between the hulls to fit the rib into?

We are currently thinking in terms of a west marine 350 rib:
WEST MARINE RIB-350 Double Floor Hypalon Inflatable Boat—White | West Marine

With a Suzuki 20hp out board.
This would give us a weight of 16l lbs for the rib and 100 lbs for the outboard.

Would be very interested to hear the opinions and experiences of others.

Re: Maximum size for dinghy / rib on Lagoon 450

3.5 meters fits nicely. If you are buying a new 450 their dinghy package is very nice. It is a Highfield 3.5 meter with a 20HP Honda 4 stroke. We have the Highfield with a console and a 40 hp Yamaha. We a very happy with our choice.
