Filed in for sale by on November 14, 2014


An 8 man Avon Seasport 4.65M rib for auction with Hypalon tubes centre console and superb refurbished Snipe multi roller Breakback swing beam 750 kg trailer. This brand is one of the most popular Rigid Inflatable Boat brands on the market. This is a great size as it is easy to handle and a fantastic sea boat and it will fit into most garages. The proportions of this rib are just right and it will take up to a 70hp outboard, it’s spacious and would make a fantastic safety or rescue rib, fishing boat or as a support boat for sailing school or work boat for a marina or harbour. The Hypalon fabric , build quality and heritage are the reason these boats are so sought after as they last so much longer than 70% of other cheaper boats with Polyurethane tubes. The boat is Cat C and rated for 8 Adults + luggage or 750kg and there is ample room to move around the boat safely and to load equipment and gear for the day This rib has no water leaks or air leaks, the rib is showing signs of age and cosmetically has scuffs on the tubes the odd patch which doesn't leak and an antifouled hull that you may want to repaint if it's staying on the water. There are some marks on the tubes and the material handles have come off at some time but the rib is still sound thanks to the Hypalon fabric and has plenty of life left. It has a helm and steering cable that are very free so all it needs is engine and controls. The rib could do with a little TLC, mainly cosmetic issues that would be fairly easy to sort out through the winter and basically consist of re-antifouling if you choose to, the seat recovering, the tubes cleaning, handles replacing if necessary. You will be able to see in the pictures that the seams have rubbed in places and there is some UV fading on the tubes. This is purely a cosmetic issue as the seams are the strongest part of the tubes as they are at least double thickness at this point. None of them leak the rib is air tight. I have shown the worst seams and there are four or five similar, If you would like further pictures of the rib please contact me. Hypalon material is readily available through ebay if you wanted to improve it’s appearance including the handles which can be glued over the top. The deck, transom and console are in good order with cut outs for instrumentation. I have plenty more photos if you require. The boat tows very well thanks to a fantastic Snipe Breakback trailer, refurbished with new hubs, bearings, mudguards, jockey wheel and tow hitch. This is a 750kg folding trailer and as you can see very easy to recover the rib on your own. This trailer is around £1500 new: http://www.snipetrailers.com/products2A.html If you don’t want the trailer I can buy it back off you. Have you got something that you would like to part exchange?
