Broker's Comments

These boat details are subject to contract.
Awesome looking rigid rib, a real head turner.
As far as heavy duty rib's go you will not find anything more serious then this! Only 50 of these craft were made as a special order for the US Marines, I have never seen anything like it before & doubt you will see another one in this country again. You will want to be seen helming this, The owner says that she could take up to 300hp engine but for his purposes this one is ideal.
If your running a sea school & are fed up with getting tubes repaired then this could save you thousands for many years to come.
This fantastic bit of kit is on the water serviced & ready for the summer.
Viewing Highly Recommended!
