Valiant V-450 Rigid Inflatable Boat – Rib With Mariner 60 4 Stroke And Trailer For Sale – 2500.00

Filed in for sale by on June 18, 2016


Valiant V-450 RIB For Sale - Relisted now as winning bidder changed his mind. Selling due to lack of use, as I have a yacht and other toys. I believe this is a 2005 model. It has a white hull and grey tubes which are in excellent condition, some age related staining and small scuffs from use. I have not seen any patches and the tubes hold air all year without needing to be topped up. The rubber rubbing strake is showing some staining (you can see this on the photos) but in very good condition otherwise and the tube end cones are stained from uv but still very sound. It has been stored with a cover while I have owned it. The hull is in good condition, there are a few scratches in the gelcoat from beaching/use but nothing deeper than the gel coat . The hull is a sealed unit with a polystyrene core (unsinkable), but it now has a bung with no sign of water inside. Mariner 60hp 4 Stroke Outboard in excellent condition and only has 199 hours recorded on the hour meter. Has a fuel tank I think 6 gallons. Impellor replaced and engine serviced last year, plugs, oil etc, it has run 3 hours since then. Power trim and tilt works well. Always starts first turn. Galvanized road trailer. This had the wheel bearings renewed last year and has been launched only once since. Some of the U-bolts are a little rusty but are very sound. It has an extendable trailerboard bracket that comes out past the engine. Steering console in the centre with instruments with rev counter, hour meter and trim angle. New steering Teleflex last year. I had a GPS bracket fitted but this is removed as the GPS broke, so there are some screw holes on the console top. There is a small compass. It also has wiring for Navigation lights (but no navigation lights) and GPS from a neat switch box under the console. It has a large cool box which is used for a front seat and is useful storage box for clothes and sandwiches (beer) etc. (its not in the correct place in the photo). There was obviously a smaller one before I had it so there are some holes in the deck from this (filled in with gel) . This is an awesome little boat. In Poole harbour I have notched up 43 knots with 5 on board and it is quite seaworthy for a small boat. It seems very economical (although I haven't used it enough to know exactly). It can be towed behind most cars, I guess the weight all up is 400kg (I can't confirm this). Its a reluctant sale because of its condition, but I cannot justify having it as I don't use it often enough to own it any more. My parents are also fed up with me storing my boats at their house! I have priced this as realistically as possible and described it as well as I can. When I was looking for it, there were loads of RIBs around which were rubbish and people wanted big money for them. This one is in cracking condition, and you will not be disappointed to see it in the flesh. If you need any more information please call me, Peter 07909 692665. It is in Poole and you will see it where it is not normally kept for security reasons. I will only release this after a cleared payment is proved. Collection only. I am a genuine seller and expect genuine buyers rather than timewasters, please bear this in mind. I also have this boat advertised locally, so may withdraw from ebay sale if I find a local buyer. Thanks for looking!
