Help to value a RIB for sale

Hello

I'm looking to buy a rib to use for a diving school. I've seen an ex-RNLI Atlantic 21 built by Halmatic in approx 1990. It is 6.96 metres long and the engines are Mariner 60 Big Foots which were new in 2001 and 2006. The seller says that it's worth £16,000 - do you think it's worth this?

Many thanks

I,m no expert the easiest way to value it would be to seperate the items engines, hull,trailer,electronics,Being ex RLNI you should have the history and hours available.It wont help you at all but a neighbour just bought one hull is tired condition engines run very sweet needs some work on deck good twin axle trailer five thousand pound he got a good deal.Tell us more details for anyone to help but does sound top money if you see what else is available for 16,000

Cannot imagine how it would be worth more than $10k.

I wouldn.t go as far as that. these usually come out of the back of the North sea for around 6 or 7. In the case of an Atlantic hull, whilst incredibly well built, they are not comfortable to drive or be a passenger in.......the seller may disagree. The motors will be working to push that boat and a dive party along so youll be looking at not a lot of speed and big fuel costs!

The Pacifics are a much better bet

I think its over priced.

As Roguewave says the Pacifics would probably suit you better. Have a look on www.boatsandoutboards.co.uk you see reconditioned Pacifics in excellent condition for around £13000.

Just seen this.

As an alternative Atlantic 21.

Call JBT Marine - they sold an ex Sidmouth Rescue 21 last year I believe - looked to be in good condition, twin 60s I think and not too much money.

Agreed 6 divers with twin sets and kit are going to need alot more hp. Either of the Pacific 22s would be a much better choice with kit carried up the front and the large engine box for seating to and from the dive site.
Alternatively if you want petrol this is one of the Weymouth charter ribs used for diving and although more money would be a much better choice. We have dived 9 off one of these. Don't forget as a dive school you will need the boat coded to MCA standards. Do a search on the Commercial forum for lots of info on coding.

Thanks for your help. The pacifics certainly look like a good choice. Can anyone recommend how much hp I would need to take 5 divers and kit and actually achieve some speed?
