Ribcraft rough prices.

Hi All,

Anyone got an idea of the rough prices or ideally a price list for Ribcraft 4.2 -5.85?

I’m looking at the possible options for acquiring my own boat, and being from the dinghy sailing community, I’ve used Ribcraft’s a lot and am very impressed.

Just trying to get an idea of how the finances could work out... Would definitely consider used but just want to know how much new is as well. ideally would like larger, but I see the fun in small ribs as well, so... who knows

Thanks in advance

That's better than I got out of them. Had to phone again then they didn't deliver what was promised. Strangely - as I don't owe them a living - I went elsewhere.

I found them easy to deal with over the phone and by email. Clear pricing and options.
Only went elsewhere because I wasn't sure they could deliver in the timeframe I was looking for.

You'd want to be in no rush for your boat!

Price will depend on all the bits you want - especially engine size, seats, console, electronics etc etc...They all add up

They are solid boats and do hold their value well (That's what I told Mrs T)

As has been said before, Ribcraft pricing & delivery dates are “flexible”. Catch them at a quiet time & you’ll get a deal delivered on time(ish), if they are up to their necks in large commercial orders, then be prepared to wait and pay. As a very rough guide, if you want a 5.3, then you need a starting budget of £25k, add another £10k for a 585 depending on spec.

Thanks PikeyDave,

Whereabouts are 5.45s compared to the 5.3? Is the 5.45 drastically cheaper than the .85?

Only asking ‘cause I know you have one. Black pig is one epic rig by the way!

Very little difference in the 545 & 585. The 545 might even be a tad more expensive depending on spec. Plus they have to tool up for the 545 as it’s not a regular production model.
