How successful is Ribs Sale section on RIB.net

There are lots used Ribs advertised on Rib.net but just curious how many are actually sold through this forum?

Any thoughts?

hmm not sure, however I put my last rib on boatsandoutboards.co.uk (for free) as I was bored and thought why not...

Within 2 days, my local sea cadets had contacted me and they bought it off me ( I let them have it for 300 less than I had put it up for though) They decided to buy it as it had clearly been looked after and didnt have any marks on the hull etc. I even drove 12 miles with it for their committee to look over it. Trusted me so much they didn't even want to see the engine running...!

For what it costs, why not use it?

Smaller stuff seems to sell quite easily on here. Bigger stuff less so I have found. That said trying to sell any sort of reasonably sized RIB is quite difficult at the moment. I normally find boatsandoutboards is the best place.

I sold one of our boats from here last year, took hours from time of posting. Like anything if you price it correctly it will sell.

There is IMHO many boats avertised on here that are wildly over priced and therefore do not sell. This is of course the same anywhere.

It depends whether the rib is any good and sensibly priced. You're more likely to find a mug buyer on B&O than on here, if that's what's required.

Couldn't agree more. Local classifieds still work, as people aren't prepared to travel - only to be disappointed because of someone's inappropriate description of 'mint condition!'

If the seller has been a member on here a while then you may find info on the boat in the forum.
