Broker's Comments

This is a beautiful RIB. A very rare set up with twin diesels and a plethora of electronic equipment normally found on a larger vessel. She boasts both trim tabs and a forward ballast tank to ensure a comfortable and safe ride with the accomodation to allow weekending on the boat. You will wait a long time for another boat of this quality to appear.

This Boat will do anything you dare to make it do in any weather.
With this high spec she could very easily be brought up to charter spec.
Also included in the sale is the Air Berth that she is currently moored on.

PX for a 6/8m twin engined cruiser would be considered.

Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
