Is this a scam?

2006 Bombard SB550 RIB power boat & Suzuki 50HP 4 stroke in York | Boats, Kayaks & Jet Skis for Sale | Gumtree.com

I'm sure I've seen this boat advertised before and this seems pretty cheap for a fairly new boat over 5m?

OK, let me rephrase that...

Is this a good price for a 6 year old 5 and a half metre rib?

Looks to me like it's sat on a yard trailer just outside Portsmouth (big hill in picture with old chalk quarry, and opposite Port Solent). Porchester way...it's late and the name escapes me....it'll come back tomorrow, but google 'ribs for sale' and you will find it....

Yeah, it didn't look much like York to me either.

And I just got around to reading the sticky about scams... Sorry for wasting everyone's time. I shut up now.

Yep, they spend 6 hours travelling to it each way to get as far as the lightship before they have to go back

Okay, so the jury s out. Maybe when I've cleared the necessary funds with the appropriations committee (ie the missus) then maybe it would be worth looking at. If it's still around.

I don't yet know whether I need a SIB or aRIB our something else entirely: but I have a notional bbudget of 5k. So we''ll see...
