Rib getting younger

This is my old Ribtec 535, I sold it over 2 years ago.
It appeared on ebay recently stating it was a year 2000, I contacted them and told them it was a 1995 hull and engine and provided them with the hull number as proof. I did add that as a dealer they should have known that . They removed the year description.
It's now on B&O with the same trade seller and once again is a year 2000, not impressed

I viewed that a month ago, with a view to buying it at 3,500. It wasn't quite as we were advised. So I left it. Seems a cheap little Rib for somebody though.

Yep, no issues regarding its general condition, so much so I expect that's why they've lopped 5 years off it's age!

I’m surprised at this as I have dealt with Stuart before as he sold one of my boats and found him good to deal with!

Regardless of whether it is value for money or not, surely to sell it as a 2000 RIB when you know it is in fact a 1995 RIB is fraudulent.

It's the 585 Ribtec ( which you & Matt saw?) this thread is about the previous one to that.
