Bargain Ribcraft RIB 's ex Olympic use

Ribcraft were contracted to supply 64 boats for the Olympics, 20 x 7.8mtr and the rest 5.85's, at the end of the games Ribcraft will have about half of the fleet available for purchase at extremely competitive prices. The company has also negotiated with the main engine supplier Suzuki to offer complete packages with engines if required, anyone think these would be a good buy?

They are available now for pre order with an 'as new warranty'

(source 'All at Sea' publication)

Like paul says, I had a mail shot about this months ago (in my role within an RYA RTE)

Prices range from 16,000 to 26,000 and represent just over half RRP (60% I think).
