My previous rib was manufactured in China and imported and distributed via 'Seaswift' in Devon.The 4.2m aluminium hulled 'Xpro' was powered by the superb Honda bf50. I could find no fault with this package to be honest providing it was used in relatively sheltered waters as I found out to my painful cost during last years McMillan round Anglesey cruise.


My advice would be make sure you have decided exactly what you intend to use the vessel for, and try before you buy if possible.


Good luck

RRRRRRRRRRRRRRR
All I can think is why would you buy this from China?
Donít get me wrong they do make some very good kit these days (and some c**p!) But unless you buy this from an importer retailer local to you what are you going to do when the transom falls off?
Send it back to China?
If your budget is limited to this price I would look at second hand well-known brand to the area you want to boat in the Italians and the Greekís make some very good ribs for the Med and if you buy well you should not lose much if any money over time whereas this will drop like a stone!

Own a sib made in china "SeaMax" Tubes are two inches larger in diameter and is the only sib registered and load-max plated by Canada's Ministry of Natural Resources. Had it three years and am quite happy with the boat.
