How long is a piece of string?
Depends on age, condition, spec, make, engine, colour etc etc.
A boat that size will be expensive, even a cheap hull and basic spec will be northwards of 20k with an upper limit of the statosphere.........

i know it's a lot to ask but i'm really trying to get an idea of the uk market. it's hard to get prices from here so i'd have to ask you guys before emailing compamanies which i may not as well know...

But as bruce says your question is too vague. There are probably 20 manufacturers making 7m ribs. You'll find list prices on some of their websites, e.g. Humber (around 17k+Engine, list price - but you can pay as little as 10k, if you take the ex stock model); Leeway (7.3m, 16k+ENGINE, list); I imagine that with free trade across Europe, most engine prices will be similar to greece.

A redbay 7.4m will cost you about twice that (35-40k depending on spec) including a 225 HP engine.

hope that helps but the spec varies so much you can't just compare all 7m boats.

thank you all for your answer. you are pretty much rigth when taling about vague questions but from what i can tell it seems that we share the same kind of markets. you get what you pay for...

thank you again.

btw, what do you mean by "decent rib" ? is there a thread you have allready discussed that or should i make the question?

so, what specs should a decent rib have? (safety, deck-hull- speed, transom angles etc) ?

what else should someone look for instead of the price and hp? (according to you of course)
