Avon 4m Hypalon Rib Boat With Galvanised Trailer Ex Rnli For Sale – 550.00

Filed in for sale by on August 6, 2016

Ex RNLI Avon 4m rib with galvanised trailer. The tubes are made of hypalon, not the modern plastic stuff. They are good and hold air. The baffles are all good and work as they should (3 seperate air chambers) and the valves all work correctly. However .... the boat needs a little tidying and finishing off! The console is not fixed down and could be put where ever you want it. there is no console seat or steering wheel and the steering boss needs mounting to the console. The outer hull is fine but the inner hull needs a few fibreglass repairs to finish it off. (see pics) There are some patches on the tubes but no leaks. Extra grab handles are fitted but there are a couple of original ones missing at the bow. This would make a great little rib, I have used it without the centre console with a 9.9hp outboard and it would plane easily. It would be great with a 20 or 30hp!! There is NO OUTBOARD ENGINE WITH THIS BOAT. It is easy to launch and recover single handed. Inflation pump included I have checked the bearings .. one is fine with no play or noises the other has slight play in it with a little noise so will need changing at some point in the near future. It is not too bad and in my opinion would be fine for a good few hundred miles or so. one tyre has some side wall crazing and will in my opinion need changing soon. Both tyres have a good amount of tread on them. The boat is very light so neither the bearings or tyres would be under much strain! NO RESERVE the boat will go to the highest bidder! Please remember this boat does need some work but unlike a lot on ebay the baffles do work! Payment by bank transfer or cash only .. no paypal. collection only ...
