She looks great and very well cared for, if the price is right and nothing stands out as a show stopper I’d go for it!
If its a QSD 4.2 SE then you are good, mine is a 2009 engine so I'm sure yours is fine. Anyway I don't think the previous engines were bad, just not as good.
Sounds as though the owner has spared no expense which is reassuring, the recon leg is a bonus, plus the turbo. Do you know how many hours the engine has?
Much better to buy a boat that has been regularly used. Scooby Doo had been sitting for a while and we have had a few niggles to sort out, nothing major and all expected but still a pain to deal with when you just want to be ribbing!
As with any large complicated rib, there will from time to time be something to sort out. So long as you understand this I’m sure you will love owning an Arctic Blue.
I also struggled to find info on the Arctic Blue ribs, but the more I learned the more I wanted one. One of the reasons I signed up was to post information to shed some light on these great boats for any future owners.
