7.5m rib cabin boat volvo penta inboard v8

What are you thoughts on this , not me selling but seems like a lot for the money, or is it like buying a cheap prestige car, cheap until service , then another 5 grand just to keep it running type of thing.

There's a thread about it on the site here. Chap bought it and has refurbed it.

Looks like the Gumtree ad is a scam.

what do they do , let you phone up , then when you turn up, instead of a boat for you to look theres a gun barrel and an open palm in its place ? Is it the phone number 10 a min trick ??

I believe that's my old 7.5m 'Quickstep' which has been mentioned on here previously. Was also tested and reported in RIBS International Magazine by Hugo Montomery-Swan. It's a Carson 750 with a stepped hull. Is was my personal boat for awhile and after doing the Dover-Boulogne Record and Round Ireland along with various other things I sold it to a gentleman with a luxury villa on one of the Greek islands. I took it there behind a Land Rover through France and Italy then Greece. He used it himself and also rented it out with his villa when not in residence himself. Since then I know he had a brand new engine fitted. However regarding its present ownership and more recent history I know nothing. It is quite right to say that it was advertised on Ebay a little time back and some postings on here followed. A very good buy at that money providing it's still in good shape and all above board. Potentially a bargain in fact! But as already mentioned. Anyone interested ought to go and inspect it before parting with any cash and if buying tow away on the day.
