** Advice Please **

After a 15yr break ( I went racing cars ) I am now in the market for a RIB

Just for myself & my wife cruising inshore, bay hopping etc....often spend a week or two down at Fowey, Cornwal....

My thoughts are.....

6.5m - 8m....

Single engine ( I think ? )

Condition & quality over age preferred....

Must inc trailer as I will be towing behind a newish large Rangey & launch & recovering....

I have popped a wanted ad in the correct section but wouldn’t mind a bit of guidance from you peeps please.....

There is a 8.5m Ceaser with twin 250 Honda’s on fleabay at the mo.... current owner has only had it a few weeks but ended up buying a Patriot he had wanted for a while that came up AFTER he had bought this.....

£21k would buy it 🤔 ?

I have a £25k ( ish ) budget.....

Thankyou in advance

Chris

You said in your other thread you were looking for a single engine. You didn't mention that having a loo on board was desirable never mind essential (there's only a handful of people on here who have such luxury, of them most never use it - its a maintenance headache), a boat as big as this is going to be bit of a beast to tow and is way more than you need for bay hopping (if anything its too big for that as getting on and off it on a shallow beach will be a wet experience). I don't know anything about the boat itself but if its just looking cheap then assuming its not a scam or hiding a bunch or problems, it probably means its not a particularly desirable style/combination. Of course it might be ideal for you.

Any RIB with an on board khazi and you're into a different world!

I'm just thinking... would the toilet brush be sikaflexed to the floor while underway in a lumpy sea?

Forget the 8.5m Ceaser, the EBay listing is laughable.

If you're getting back into boats then 6m+ and mid-sized engine which is perfectly capable of bay hopping inshore.

Ribeyes have nice layout, rear bench seat and jockey combination, easy to tow and launch. Check out this one on Apollo Duck. The tubes could use a little TLC, but will come okay with TFR or tuolene for stubborn marks. The Yamaha F100 is a bit lardy, but give it a season. There's others on Boats and Outboards. https://www.apolloduck.com/boat/ribeye-a-600/600009
