Bruce, I aways try to market/ sell the boat as much as possible in the advert, heres the one for a rib I sold.
Avon 4m RIB
This much loved boat is now regrettably for sale due to owner now away at university.
Manufactured by Avon and in sound condition for its year this represents a very good first boat, it is fitted with mint condition Suzuki 40HP which provides enough power to put a smile on your face and more than capable of towing toys or a skier.
The hull itself is in good sound condition with the tubes being professionally overhauled last season including having all new valves these therefore do not leak at all.
The Suzuki outboard is very reliable and a good starter, it features electric start (and pull start) has power tilt, good Suzuki controls, new kill cord switch and teleflex no-feedback steering. The engine is flushed through with fresh water after every use and I had the engine professionally serviced at the end of last season and given a clean bill of health by the marine engineer, it is ready to go!
The complete package is sat on a Hallmark trailer with brand new wheels and tyres. The summer is fast approaching and this excellent little package will get you on the water and provide you a lot of fun for a relatively small outlay it will also fit in a conventional sized garage and can be launched by hand.
Ready to go, just add water! Offers welcome, located in Christchurch. Dorset.

Similar format for a speed boat I also sold:
12' Marina speedboat complete with Johnson 35hp and sound road trailer.
In the time I have owned it the boat has been sanded down and repainted, the stringers in the floor replaced and re-glassed professionally to give this hull years more service and to give it a tidier appearance.
The interior has been reupholstered with marine grade carpet and has had a pair of new matching seats costing in excess of £100. The boat can seat four comfortably, and gives a dry ride.
Engine is a good starter and is ultra reliable, manual start and manual trim, so nothing to go wrong or any electrical hassles to ruin a days boating.
This year Johnson specialists South Coast Outboards have given it a full service including new impeller and have replaced the engine mounts along with giving it a clean bill of health.
Included is a 22 litre fuel tank, NEW 2005: navigation lights, switch panel, bilge pump, all powered by a new marine battery.
The summer is fast approaching and this excellent package will get you on the water and provide you a lot of fun for a small outlay, ready to go, just add water! Offers welcome.
Feel free to chop and change, boats and outboards don't appear to give a word limit.
