Filed in for sale by on June 27, 2016


Hello and Welcome to the sale of my Ribtec 5.5M RIB I hugely regret selling my beloved RIB but she has to go unfortunately due to upcoming emigration to Canada. I'll try and include all the information I can think of, if I have missed anything you're welcome to contact me. The boat will be sold as an entire package and will include the following - Ribtec 550 Freeway Hull fitted with Yamaha F100 OutboardHallmark Rollercoaster Trailer - Brake Shoes removed, new bearings fitted. Could easy replace shoes to make trailer braked again. Recent winch.Trailer Board and extension cable (just add your number place, hook it up and you're away)Prop Bag CoverAnchor and ropeBow LineHalf a tank of stabilised fuel, ready to run the boat. Towing rope and handle for inflatables, ski's and wakeboards.Mooring Buoys to protect rubbing strake. Manual Bilge pump. 3x Ratchet straps safely securing boat to trailer. The boat is in used condition. I've taken the best care I can take of it, the year I believe is 2001/2002 both motor and hull. The seats are all in decent condition but there are marks here and there. The rubbing strake has recently been painted with white rubber topcoat paint. Tubes have no leaks or repairs but do show some wear in places. All this is to be expected but it's better to be honest. Overall the boat is well presented, looks fantastic on the water and goes just as well. This hull with this this motor is a good match and it does have a great turn of pace and excellent acceleration/top end balance. Being four stroke it's a turn key boat and has always fired up without issue. The regulator/rectifier has been recently replaced, a pre season service given and I ran her everyday in Falmouth during Whitsun with absolutely no problems, towing and boating. The electrics typically do not work, the Power tilt and trim is perfect and the fuel sender works. The nav lights are fuctional too but the Tach and speedo doesn't work. This has never been an issue for me, you can easily use a smart phone for an accurate read out. Which has proved the boat is capable of 40knts+ in the right conditions. There is also a recent genuine Yamaha prop fitted with no damage whatsoever. It seats 8 comfortably and has the power to cope with such a load. It is an excellent boat and I have some incredible memories with her. It is indeed a bit of a heartbreaker to let her go but onwards and upwards! Many a difficult day to come. I'll throw in the spare wheel also, this is really a package you can collect and just add your number plate, tow her anywhere and drop it in the water and turn the key. Truly ready to go. Viewings are welcome, questions are welcome. Sea trials are difficult in Warwickshire but I can show you running and selecting gears on the muffs. Thanks for looking
