New Delta Rib price

Thought I would ask Delta ribs for a price of a new 6.5m rib, nothing to fancy, 4 x single jockey seats, A frame, twin 115 engines extra rubbing strakes and a base electronics package, solely for recreational purposes and not commercial.
After a couple of days I got a reply from their sales executive with a rough price..... I know Delta are one of the best ribs on the market but I wasn't prepared for the price quoted...

(ROM) rough order of magnitude price for a 6.5m rib would be 175,000.

YES.... 175k for a 6.5m rib??? I responded asking if it was a typo but he has not replied back... So, there you have it.. If you want a expensive rib look know further. I am still in shock!! I expected 45-55k max...

Guess i'll look elsewhere...

Probably just priced themselves out of the job on purpose as I seem to remember they aren't ce marked for leisure use

I take it that company doesn't drug test its employees.
Or he needs his calculator recalibrated.

Shameless plug. Only one seat but not a major job to add more using the deck matrix for the bottle rack, & you'll have change for fuel👍

Talk to Jason at Ribcraft. They are building me a 6.4 at a price well within your budget. Great people to deal with too.
