Rib Boat, 7metre V Type Requires Repair / Boat Project. For Sale – 0.99

Filed in for sale by on June 8, 2015


Up for auction is a clients 'V' type 7m RIB boat, the boat comes complete with an Indespension big dipper trailer, but has NO ENGINE. There is some damage to the hull, and so is therefore being offered for sale as a repair / project for someone. HULL: Builder 'V- type' boats, makers of super-yacht tenders and ribs etc, see www.v-type.com for conformation of the pedigree of this rib! Length : 7metre, width : 2.5m, age : unknown. There is damage to the underside (see pictures) this hull must of had a collision with something afloat at some point in the past, they were completely unaware of that when she was purchased in 2012, and have enjoyed dozens of fishing trips on her since. Then last year after a minor collision with the trailer when recovering the boat, they disturbed the previous unnoticed repair, the fibreglass was cut back to investigate and a new repair was made, however in my opinion and in the interests of being honest, its a bit crude and should be considered more of a DIY'ers repair! Wants finishing off, re anti-fouling etc. (Although it has to be said its held up ever since). A new Cheetah Cat is now on its way, so this must go, the existing Honda engine has been removed for use with the new boat. Internal hatches are damaged and general wear and tear. The present owners had used this Rib for fishing and it has had a live bait well formed in one of the deck wells, and a seacock fitted to then drain once ashore. Tubes are good, although do soften after a few days. Cant see any patch's or repairs and seams are all good. TRAILER: Indespension twin axle big dipper, Bearings have all just been replaced and not been near water since, Tyres all good and hold air. Brakes have been stripped out / disconnected as the Boat has been in storage adjacent to slipway.
