Condition:- Overall this Rib is in superb condition and shows very little signs of her age. She has been stored on land and covered up when not in use. The engine is immaculate The tubes are patch free The hull is clean with only few very small marks. Metalwork is still bright and clean. Seats are original and clean – the rear most seat has a few marks – our intention was to get them reupholstered next season but time has got the better of us and they are by no means bad! Trailer:- This was purchased new by ourselves in August 2011 It cost just shy of £3000 It is a Gullwing aluminium roller coaster trailer and is a work of art. It has:--3000kg GVW -Sealed Avon bearings -Flush kit for brakes -Full aluminium construction -2x spare wheels -multiroller design for easy launch and recovery -always washed and dried after use. -we estimate it has done 2000mile, 1700 of which were an epic road trip to Scotland for some wake boarding on the Lochs Please note – the Mariner auxiliary outboard is not included in the sale, but maybe available by separate negotiation. We would like to keep it for a future boat as it took us a while to find such an immaculate small outboard without buying new. We have used the RIB with Family and friends for day cruises up and down the coast from Teignmouth slip. Mostly across the bay to Star Point then up the Exe to the Turf/River Exe Cafe. We comfortably cruise at 20-25 knots with the engine at a gentle burble and she eats up the sea miles. Although a very eye-catching craft, we didn’t buy her to race and so have never thrashed the engine, which is very smooth running. Good technique over the Lyme Bay swells uses the responsive throttle to tweak the power to keep the hull level and smoothly pushing over the water, and the engine is very willing at constant, subtle adjustment of power which makes her a joy to drive. The 2 stroke is much more responsive, lighter, and smoother than the HPDI or 4-stroke outboards and which tick-over is louder than the equivalent 4-stroke, when planing we believe it’s quieter than the equivalent four stroke. If more than 25 knots is required she is more than happy to oblige! Please note - the RIB is located in East Devon not far from Exeter Airport. Viewings are welcomed for serious interested parties. Although we would like to sell the RIB, we are not going to give it away. It was never bought to make money and with the "investment" in the trailer and maintenance over the past few years we feel it is a great buy for someone - our loss is your gain!
