Twin Outboard Dive Rib Speedboat Rigid Inflatable Boat Mariner 75hp For Sale – 310.99

Filed in for sale by on March 8, 2015


5.8 Meter Mach RIB 'ORCA TOO'. The Boat: The tubes are made of tough hypalon and are in fair condition, they are well glued to the hull and are not coming away anywhere. There are three chambers. They do have marks, blemishes and very very slight damage that may not be apparent from the pictures, (viewing is recommended to gain a full appreciation of their condition) although nothing too serious. There are two small patches. Like many RIBs the air needs topping up after several days, this would only be a problem if kept on a mooring, for day/trailer use it's no drama. I have inspected the whole thing for leaks with soap spray and the only leaks I could find were extremely slow bubbles at the valves (inner). I have bought replacement valve parts (included) but am not brave enough to attempt changing them. The V-hull is in good condition, there aren't too many marks, no major damage or cracks. It is strongly built and doesn't take on water. The deck is very solid fibreglass with anti-slip patches. There is a small anchor locker at the bow. Self bailing - there is a sump at the stern which drains out of an 'elephant trunk'. There is an aluminium bottle rack and frame/tower. There is a small fire extinguisher, there are two storage tubs with a selection of distress flares. The centre console has a few chips and old mounting holes. I have just had the seat re-upholstered. There is a backlit compass. There is an eagle fish finder/depth sounder which works well, as do the navigation lights and there is a stereo - FM/AM radio and USB/Ipod input with waterproof speakers which produces a decent sound. The VHF radio doesn't work. It turns on but doesn't seem to transmit or receive, it may just need a new antenna but I can't say for sure. The Engines: 2 X 1997 Mariner 75HP ELPT Autolube 2-Stroke. Electric start. Duel remotes, hydraulic steering. Power trim/tilt. Electric start with 2X leisure batteries. They are in full running condition. They start and tick over well and go in and out of forward and reverse gears smoothly with no problems. Can be shown running. The cowlings do have a few scrapes. The props are Piranha types - there are a few spare blades with it. Trailer: Twin axle roller-coaster - The bad bit - the brakes are NOT SERVICEABLE and require an overhaul. Despite this, the galvanised frame/cradles and rollers are in good condition and it tows very well, the bearings are good. I have inspected and greased them. The tyres are decent and I'll include two spare wheels. There are 3 x Rachet straps and a lightboard included. Summary: This is a twin engined RIB. This is its best feature, each engine is capable of powering the boat up onto the plane on its own, so no limping back with a puny spare miles out from home if one fails. If you are after a solid reliable RIB this is the one for you. It is by no means in pristine condition, but it will do the job this summer and for many more yet to come. If you have any questions or to arrange a viewing message me on here or call on 07474250265. Please only bid if you are a serious buyer. You are bidding to buy not to view. Viewing is welcomed and recommended. The boat is near Redhill, Surrey. I May be willing to deliver dependant on destination for a price after receipt of funds.
