I'm in a similar position, I've got up to 3000 to spend on a RIB, and I want something no smaller than 4m, but about that size, to run RYA courses on, as I am a PBI.

If anyone reckons they have a 4m ish with a decent engine on the back, must have centre console, mail and we can talk about it!

I am at Uni in Portsmouth, but live in North Kent, so anywhere relatively local to either would be good.
Seems to good to be true 700 for a 50, its obviously a genuine sale, but may be high hours. May be worth finding out if its been used on a training boat or as a rescue boat. If its a rescue boat fine, but if on a training boat I would get it checked over, just think of all those beginners grinding the gears!

Mosts boats are For sale at the right price! PM me if my boat fits your requirements.

50hp Outboard

Being that the engine will have been used at Plas Menai, it will almost certainly have been used on a teaching boat. The ad does say low hours though.

Ah well, something to consider, given that I am now looking at buying a 4.5m without an engine, if financially viable!

Another Searider for sale?

Apologies if this one has already been pointed out - and I've not done any digging down myself. Quite an interesting site to see what else is for sale! - at least one other RIB.
