Who can tow my RIB ?

As an alternative to buying a car that can tow my RIB, I want to consider hiring somebody to tow it for me. Possibly this would be better for me as I won't need to tow the boat every weekend.
I am interested if anybody can tow my 9,75m Scorpion rib long distances, for example Belgium - Malaga ( and back 3 weeks later) in the summer and other similar (long distance) trips. I would have a trailer available but not the car. The total weight is expected to be 3.500 kg. Thanks

You could ask Kris from Brugge Marine Center. They are working with someone that trailers those 14m+ ring ribs all the way up to Sweden.

PM me if you want his number

Have you thought of having it trucked down there. There must be plenty of hauliers ofering groupage services from Belgium. I did this and it worked out much cheaper. You will need to figure out how to get it off and on at either end but most yards will have a big enough fork truck.

I have a trolley not a trailer which use to store it in the yard. It also gives it more room when on the road vehicle. As you can see I deflated the tubes as I was concerned about the 2.60m beam and made sure it was loaded and secured carefully so there was no danger of the tubes rubing against the curtian stantions.

We then let the plane take the strain if that is what you call it when you travel Ryan Air!

If you decide to trail with your own trailer the other issue you may come across is the licencing of trailers in spain. Ribinspain has put some post up on this you may wish to read.
