5.2 Rimini Rib I just upgraded from a Sib to a Rib

Ok so I gave up and decided I wanted something a bit more Bomb proof so I could get out to the islands if I wanted to. I called up a friend at my local Rib repair place and asked if he had any cheap ribs. long story short I bought a Rimini 5.2 Sport boat for 1000 euros sadly no Trailer and no Motor But I have both of those.

Its in Decent nic and just needs a clean and a small leak fixed. I was kind of confused though when I started looking them up because well there is next to no info about them. Also My tubes look like hypalon and feel like it and the seams look like it as well but I read that Rimini used PVC????

I will post some pictures and let me know what you guys think? Its a bit of a mystery at the moment.

The tubes are really dirty but he cleaned part of one and they shine up perfect.
What ya think sadly All the nice goodies like the GPS didnt come with the boat.

Thanks I have looked through all of these though. Not much info there literally scoured the web for info on them. Seems like they just disappeared. Was just hoping to find someone who currently owns one.

I did own one for a few years, not much to say apart from it was Ok. Used her for diving and as a safety boat.

Transom was looking a tad ropy when she went, was a tad wet when loaded or in any sort of sea.

Coped in a big sea quite well in my book, so long as you read the waves and slowed. If you tried to power through or over then she'd stall or get you very, very wet.

Hey thanks so much. Was yours a 520?

Any idea how much they weigh?

Also did you ever have any problems with the hull construction? Or transom?
