Ribcraft twin engined 6.4m Dive RIB

Ribcraft 6.4m Custom Dive RIB for sale.

This boat was built to my spec. in 2008 as a safe, capable offshore dive boat. She originally cost £45000 & I have added approximately £5000 worth of extras. I have all receipts, manuals & registration papers available for inspection. The boat & all major components are "Datatagged". The registration would be passed on to the new owner.
Along with the legendary Ribcraft build quality, she is equipped with every extra an adventurous club or private owner would need, to explore remote diving areas in comfort & safety. She has plenty of deck space & can easily accommodate 8 club divers or 4 Technical divers with rebreathers, side mounts etc.
“Maintained regardless of cost” is an often overused phrase but in this case is absolutely true, the boat has been washed off after every use & meticulously cared for. She is stored under a purpose built barn out of the sun. There are a couple of very minor scratches on the hull.
The gearcases were replaced in 2014 by a BRP main dealer at a cost of £5000 after the skegs were damaged. The skegs could have easily been repaired but I had new gear cases fitted rather than have the originals repaired. I have the old gearcases for inspection. The water pumps were serviced as part of the repairs.
The boat comes fully prepared & ready to go as a “turnkey” package & includes the following:-
Military grey tubes with rescue orange hull, black non-slip deck. 5 chamber tubes c/w overpressure valves.
Single jockey seat with pod storage.
Counter rotating twin 115hp Etecs c/w water pressure sensors & Mercury Rev4 19” stainless props.
The engines have been fitted with BRP water separating filters c/w “water in fuel” sensors.
Twin 90l underdeck fuel tanks.
Twin Optima bluetop batteries, 1 of which was brand new last year.
The fuel tanks have crossover valves to enable 1 engine to run from both tanks OR both engines from 1 tank.
Twin RACOR fuel filters.
The batteries have an interlink switch to allow either engine to be started from or charge either battery.
The above arrangement gives a high level of redundancy.
8 Cylinder stainless bottle rack.
2” heavy duty double “A” frame.
RC Pacific console c/w windscreen & stainless grab rail.
Bow anchor locker.
Heavy duty rubber comfort matting, this is fast draining, comfortable to stand on & protects the deck from heavy diving kit.

Twin networked Raymarine E80 Classic 8”plotters c/w Navionics platinum XL28 chart (whole of UK/French north coast/Ireland)
Raymarine DSM300 HD sonar c/w M260 1KW through hull transducer, this setup keeps a solid bottom trace at all speeds.
