Hi all - this sounds like a great boat, lots of money spent on it apparently. Relisted on Ebay after getting zero bids. Anyone got any views on or experience of these things. I know nothing about RIBs but the tubes look a little crinkly in places...is it worth a bid? TIA!

There's something odd about the circumstance of that small rib. Reckons he's just spent £2600 getting it tip top... really... on something he's selling for around £4k. It must have been in very poor condition then... perhaps he bought it for peanuts in rough condition just to turn a profit??

Also I'd not buy with the condition you immediately transfer £500 by Paypal... I'd want to see it before parting with a penny.

Yes my thoughts exactly. The £500 thing is suspicious. All in all it seems a little dubious.

might be just an hard sell, but engine has had a full strip down, boat has had to be cleaned extensively, trailer refurbished, soon get rid of a couple of grand i would say not been looked after plus toobs very soft why when you want it to look its best OMO

Looks tidy and legit to me. Arimar are quite popular tenders on larger boats.

Well worth having a look if you like the look of it. Tubes look a bit soft in the photos but probably just need topping up.
