Humber RIB pricing?

I have met with someone at a show who is in the marine business on The Thames so has little to do with RIBs but has a Humber 5.5m rib, 14 years old with a 135 hp Mariner engine V6, low hours, good trailer, single axle, braked. There are no extra electrics with the boat just a non electric compass. The engine is a 2 stroke fuel injected. I did ask him to send me some images but nothing arrived.
I am not involved in selling this but said I would ask about prices for this, has anyone got ball park area for this guy to offer for sale. Cheers Ian

Which hull? If it is a Destroyer:

Here's a 5.8 for sale, about that age, for six grand:

A 5.5 for 5750, age not specified:

Somewhere around there I should think?

So it's an opti?

I'd go in around 5500

I picked up a 2002 5.5 Destroyer with 2002 50HP Suzuki on a 2002 indespersion roller for 3950 last week, but I do think that was under priced. I will need to be looking at a bigger engine pretty soon (anyone need a 50Hp?).

I would start it around 5500 looking at what I have seen previously and the diference in engine size if it is in reasonable condition.

If it is a 5.5 Destroyer - the transom is only rated for 115HP so it could raise some eyebrows.

Continuing with this RIB, I am awaiting some images (hope) but just got an e mail that it has "Dive Pro" written on the side. Is this a model type or has someone added those words?

Never heard of a Dive Pro - but I found one on Google....

http://www.boatshedwales.co.uk/humbe...oat-23746.html

I think it's probably a version of the 5.3m Ocean Pro as seen here
