Rent a rib in Suffolk

Hi,

Iím looking to rent a rib somewhere near Ipswich Suffolk. Canít see anywhere that charters bareboat ribs in Suffolk...do you know of anywhere or anyone who would rent me a rib?

Thanks!

Not aware of anywhere. But. Almost certainly no-one rents if you don't have PB2...

Might be worth thinking about what size / type of RIB you may be after then talk to some dealers / manufacturers about a sea trial
SBS is not far off - may be worth a trip and book up some demos in advance.

No bareboat in Suffolk. An option could be Southwold Voyager in Southwold - you can book an experience session where you drive under the supervision of a commercially endorsed skipper. But as others have said, without PB2 you wonít be able to bareboat charter anywhere.
