I think the best option at this point is qemu. Why does the 'friend' need
physical hardware? :)
he's a hacker and just likes the feel of circuit boards, but
qemu does look like the only feasible option at the moment.
No. There is a sweet middle ground called FPGAs. You buy a board, with an
IC on it, that is expensive as hell, empty like air, but fully
re-configurable with almost any RISC-V SoC you can think of.

For example the Rocket 64 bit RISC-V.
hmmm ... not even that expensive a board:
