Mercury (Valiant) RIBS

Driving past my local Merc dealer this week I couldn't fail to notice a large orange RIB with a for sale and 'finance available' sign on it. Given that the only RIBS I usually see there are the Coastguard/Police Zodiac's in for servicing I could help but go take a closer look. The RIB turned out to be a DR750 which in Europe is known as a Valiant but badged as Mercury in North America. Chatting to the guy at the dealer it seems that Mercury in Canada at least are making more of a push to sell this line.

He told me the list price was somewhere around C$92k but the ex-demo model rigged with a 150 Verado, centre console with side by side flip up seat/leaning post, VHF and trailer could be had for C$59k+taxes. To me that still seems a lot of money given you can buy a fairly substantial yacht for a similar amount but if it interests anyone then I can provide contact details!
Out of the fog......
