Ribcraft 5.85 migrates to Wales

After picking everyones brains on the forum I found my RIB of choice and moved her from Scotland to Wales this weekend. She will now be based in Pembrokeshire so I am eagerly awaiting news of upcoming cruises in the Milford Haven area.
Cheers to those who helped with my questions and to the forum in general for being a great research tool.

Nice one - we're quite often out on the MH waterway and would be happy to meet up for a spin

Lovely!!

Exactly what I'd buy if I had the money. How much does a 585 set you back with the package you have? Graham

As with most manufacturers you can get a base package for what seems like a very good price, when you start adding on things like console upgrades seating pods, wingbacks, A frames, chartplotters, VHFs etc the price starts rising very steeply. A new boat with the spec of the one I bought would be around £26K. As a rough guide after you buy new you can remove the VAT and take off 10% per year for depreciation, that was the reasoning I used to confirm I paid a fair price for the boat which was 2 years old.

By my reckoning that works out at £16250. A good buy.
