Broker's Comments

Preliminary details: awaiting confirmation by owner.

Used as patrol and umpiring vessels for the Louis Vuitton and America’s Cup and by the New Zealand Coast Guard, Protector RIBs are serious commercial workboats.

This one has been professionally maintained and dry stored on a Hydrohoist. With great handling and seaworthiness she is ideal as a top of the range chase or coach boat, suitable for chartering or just to have one of the best RIBs on the water.

These boat details are subject to contract.

Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.

This Protector 8.5m has been personally photographed and viewed by Nick Morton of Boatshed Brixham. Click here for contact details.
