Broker's Comments

For Sale at £25,000 + vat, the current owners are vat exempt being a charitable trust, however vat is only payable on the selling price.
Built and used to RNLI rescue standards, this is a lot of RIB for the money, her size and engines make her a match for most weather conditions, as this is what she was built for, impeccably maintained, if your looking for a club/dive RIB or a safety RIB then you shouldnt pass this one by.
