Filed in for sale by on February 1, 2015


Hi and welcome to my auction. This is my much loved rib which is great fun and very safe and capable in rough seas. She's big enough to take your friends and you can still launch her on your own. It's a porters rib the same as some solent ribs, she's 7m in length and has a good beam around 8ft for stability and space on deck. She was built in 2006. The deck is covered with rubber chippings like you would see around some swimming pools so it's impossible to slip on it. There's seating for eight people with storage under all the seats and in the console. The tubes are in good condition with one small repair done professionally which is well hidden and they hold air for months. The rubbing strake is coming away in a couple of places around the bow but nothing major. The seats are in good condition expect for one small tear on the front port seat which doesn't notice. The hull and deck are in good condition. She would need re antifouling to live afloat. The A frame is very substantial and can be used for towing wake boarders and mooring. The outboard is 2006 140hp 2 stroke Tohatsu which has the best power to weight ratio of any outboard and also being only 4 cylinders is good on fuel whilst pushing her to 40 knots or cruising around 30-35 knots. The outboard is serviced up to date, the carburettors have been ultrasonically cleaned and a new propellor fitted ready for use. There's a racor fuel filter with built in water seperator. It's been an excellent outboard always started first time, runs smooth and pumps lots of water. Fitted to her is : A dsc ray marine 55 vhf radio with a heavy duty rib aerial which gives a great range and clear sound with a 2nd speaker in the mic and it's own gps antenna all new last year. The 7 inch ray marine dragonfly chirp sounder and chart plotter in one which is excellent for exploring and fishing. New last year. A compass mounted on the console with a back light. A stereo type radio with 2 water proof speakers new last year. An automatic bilge pump with manual override. Battery isolator Port, starboard and steaming lights. Anchor and warp with 7m chain and 50m rope which lives under the forward deck hatch new last year. 2x mooring lines Included in the sale is the De Graff trailer in good condition with new wheel bearings and the brake shoes have been removed to prevent them seizing. The tyres are good and hold air. The winch and rollers are all in good order as is the jockey wheel etc. Selling much reluctantly due to a change in personal circumstances. As you can see I spent a bit of money last year getting her all the latest electronics and servicing so is ready for use. Viewing most welcome Advertised elsewhere Cash or bank transfer on collection good luck.
