Here is the original ebay ad: 6.6 Metre Cobra RIB Boat | eBay

Here is the B&O ad: Outboard Engine for sale , 6.6 Metre Cobra RIB Boat - Boats And Outboards

The B&O add makes no mention of engine? but is that legit or bad cut n paste?

I know this boat down here! The guy used it as the patrol boat to enforce the speed limit in the bay and other things. Great boat and flys along! Looks like a scam though.. not much info, only one photo & doesnt say where it is...and obviously the price.

If its too good to be true then simply walk away. I'm always genuinely surprised when people sell high value items that they have a lack of information in their listing. Oh and the EBay listing... they've been a member since Tuesday!

I have a mate who might know them. Ive just asked them to try find out

The owners called john taylor so if they reply from B&O's in a different name might be a clue...

The B&O ad is nearly 10k cheaper. Why are you even debating this?
