Money to burn I guess!

We'd all buy a new boat every year if we could

The boats as good as any other Ribquest, Dave and co at RIBQUEST worked hard to get it finished.
We are selling it due to a recent change in planning restriction and have a new boat in build.

Please do not start slagging off the boat as we all work for what we have.

I dont understand how a 140k boat doesn't sell for 50k when I guess it has low hours etc

Do people know so something or what?????

I don't understand it either. It must surely be a steal at that price, or is it just that anybody who can afford to run a 10m rib with 600hp will pay the extra to buy brand new and get exactly what they want?

If I had the money for a 10m boat it wouldn't be that it would be something with a full cabin, but that's just a function of my location. If I lived somewhere a trifle warmer I'd be off to the nearest bank with a sawn off shotgun and a balaclava

I think its more the running cost... I run two 150hp engines.. and that quickly builds up a nice fuel bill. WOT on mine, hitting 5500 rpm ish, I get about around 55 knots, and burn 120l/h.... I hate to think what these would cost to run.

That said, running this boat state side, or somewhere else where petrol isn't 1.30/l it would be a great boat to run

I am not sure it is low hours, I asked about that when it was last on eBay and seem to recall the engines were used at the time of fitting.
