Those pics are definitely taken in Davis's, but any scammer could know it was there as well from an old advert.

Seriously, don't pay for it til you've seen it and can verify ownership.
Need spares,consoles,consumables,hire,training or even a new boat?

I'm down that way after work and seem to recall a conversation with a mate who said he actually knows the owner. I'll have words later and a look see and pm with outcome.

Edit..I think the owner does work offshore regularly so could well be honest.

This RIB was on a swinging mooring for several years in Poole Harbour and I have seen it in Davies Yard. It does exist and is a "local" boat. I have never seen it in operation under its own power
Be careful & good luck
