Annual Costs for 7 to 9 metre RIB. (Solent)

I have run a decent sized motorboat on a pontoon for the last 30 years - but would like to find out about RIB running costs. (excluding fuel which I can work out).

Can anyone give me a good idea of costs of insurance, dry-stacking or similar, servicing (single outboard, probably 150-250hp) and anything else I should be costing out.

Thanks very much in advance.

Thanks Bruce.

I'd found the southampton drystack sites on the web. Emailed both of them for a quote but only got a reply from one!

I use Hamble Yacht Services Dry Stack and they are very good also.

Worth talking with Kay there who should be able to help.

Thank you Zippy.

(Incidentally I have now had replies to both emails I sent out, and the prices differ by large amounts - yet the service offered seems to be identical).

I know HYS are not the cheapest but for me its very easy as i can leave the boat and walk home.

we also have our work rib there so makes sense.

best to satisfy yourself by looking at them both. i know SDS have good reviews and my dealings with them have always been very simple and customer focused!

We also stack with Hamble Yacht Services and find thier service excellent. They offer both 6 month and 12 month stacking and it is very convenient to get out to the solent from Port Hamble.
