6m Rib with Twin Engine Package?

Hello,
I am new to this site as one of my friends suggested it.

My question to rib builders:

How much would you quote for a 6m Rib, with following Specs:

A. Twin Engine (with Max HP capability of the rib) - please Exclude Evinrude E-Tec
B. Only Jockey Seat Double
C. A Frame
D. Anti Slip Flooring
E. Flexible on Colour
F. Steering Wheel
G. Warranty (Include how many years and the items covered)



The quote shall exclude VHF Radio, other electronics, Delivery, etc.. No Trailer is required.

Estimated Delivery Date of the rib?

I doubt you'll get too many responses from the major rib builders on here - you might be better off contacting them direct. A few of them put in an appearance occasionally but they aren't really regulars AFAIK.

Dear BogMonster,
Thanks.

I was hoping to save time contacting them one by one!

I have recently sold my 30ft motor cruiser and thinking of buying a rib. Humber has got some good options but still not convinced that they are the leading manufacturer in the market...

Hi,
Welcome to Ribnet.

If you have not owned a rib before, stay away from Chinese Ribs, which look very nice, but are really unreliable and in fact dangerous! There are some posts here...

In my opinion, go for Humber, Brig, Ribeye / Ribtec, or Delta.

You can google them and find their contact details, getting a quote from their local distributers should not take you more than 10min!

You overlooked a few key players in the UK market too.

Most of them actually

OP, I'd suggest that you would do better to make a shortlist of suppliers, call them to discuss, then email over the spec sheet and see what happens.

Sorry, I was under the impression that they no longer did business with the public.

Why would you generalise all Chinese ribs like that?? Have you any personal experience with them or are you just going on second hand information? I'm not a dealer or manufacturer nor am I promoting any ribs here, but i will stand over my own purchase after doing a lot of research and it's a tried and tested CE rated boat!!
