After selling my old Ribtec 585 before Christmas I got withdrawal symptoms and decided it was time to buy another RIB.
So after looking at;-
Artic 22 bare
Artic 28 bare
Avon 8.4 with twin 225s (lets not even go there!
A friend and I have now settled on........ another Ribtec 585!!
And in order to remain consistent with previous names Northern Exposure IV was born!
We picked it up in Plymouth Yacht Haven and it used to belong to the National Marine Aquarium as a dive boat.
Currently with one Merc 75 on the back its a total pig but plans are in motion for either another 75 or a Merc 150.
Only problem is the boat was set up for a twin 75 hp set up and has a trunk in the centre of the well! I favour another 75 on it but my partner in crime thinks a big 150 is the way to go.
What do people think?? I'm interested in doing the boat up over a couple of years and selling on so resale is important to us.
