Sounds like it would be worth 10k+++ easily but only if it's genuine from an ownership and history point of view (ie - was it smashed up and re-assembled? or stolen recovered?)

If it were only faded tubes then no problem (unless you're just buying a RIB to look at!) but there's a story there perhaps...

Reckon it's a new hull and 2nd hand tubes.

Not interested in this one then? I emailed the seller with the questions raised ('cos I'm nosey!)...

Hi jarvo144, Just got a few questions about your RIB... 1. Why are the engine instruments and the steering ram missing? 2. How old are... a) the hull b) the tubes c) the engine 3. How long have you owned the RIB? 4. And why are you selling it? 5. Where did you buy it from? Cheers, Richard.

...and got the following reply:

Answers to questions:
1. Engine instruments are on the centre console. And it doesn't have a steering ram because it is not hydraulic steering.
2. a) 2004 b) 2004 c) 2000
3. Since April this year
4. It is too cold for the family with it been an open deck.
5. Hull was purchased from Humber Inflatables and the engine was bought from a boat dealer from Southampton.

Thanks Jarvo

Graham - looks like it's the boat you thought it was. 20 hours left... bargain for 9,995

Any idea how much it would cost to get it retubed?

Retube

Hi Jlanng

We could re-tube this boat for 2200.

Thanks - that seems a fair price.

It starts to become less of a bargain when you add 2200 for the retube and 1500? for a legal trailer.

Why would you need to re-tube it? Just because it's faded?

Yes, because I think it would be difficult to sell-on with tubes faded like that.
