New cabin RIB for less than 20k?

Is there such a thing?

Perhaps someone could put some tubes on this for you?

Sorry

Without an engine I guess so. But you'd probably have to do a certain amount of self-build. I doubt anything less than 7.5m would be worth having with a cabin.

Thanks guys, I suspected so but have been asked to find one for a customer and wanted to be sure I was not jumping to conclusions.

The Redbay 6.5 wraparound is perhaps the closest to a anything with any kind of shelter.

Perhaps the quest should be for a RIB with "some cover" for under 20k....

You could find a hull manufacturer to make you a hull and fit a console say from Windsor marine that would give you the option of a small cabin, provided the hull suppliers was prepared to fit the console and leave a hole though the deck inside the console to provide enough of a useful cabin.

It might be feasable to get the hull tubes and cabin for less than 20k but I think you'll be looking at a 7.5m rib as a minimum length.

I would have thought it was usefull to talk to the Windsor Bros, Osprey or Shakespeare for costs etc.

Does the 20k include the motor? (I'm assuming nothing as boring as VAT is involved )
