ribeye 785s weight

need a new trailer for a Ribeye 785s 2003, does anyone know the weight of the Ribeye? i have googled but only found the newer ones on line. I can work out with engine if anyone has without engine weight. (about 220-240kg). Cheers.

If it is on a trailer now then can you take it to a local weight bridge? It is worth doing if an option.

Not exactly the same boat as yours but for what it's worth I used to own a Ribeye 725S built in 1999 and it weighed 1550kgs without engine, batteries, kit or clobber, etc.

Give Ribeye a call.

cheers - tried the ribeye route but to many variables, about 1500kgs with engine - maybe. (Seems heavy for a 7.8 meter rib or maybe not?) I think the weigh bridge may be best option but was hoping to avoid that, ours is a fair distance away. I was hoping a fellow 785 owner may have done it already. Thanks anyway.

My 6.8 is 1580kg not counting the trailer, different boat of course so take that with a pinch of salt.

Take it to a bridge, buying 2 trailers because of this sucks......trust me!

There will be lots of weighbridges near you - but they may not issue certs for vehicles. Think quarries, scrap metal merchants, waste collection outfits, etc. You just need a figure....

I used the 'Civic amenities' site - aka local tip - at Enderby in Leicester to check weigh mine.
IIRC cost about 5 & they gave me a signed printout of the total weight.
Best to ring around your area as not all 'Civic amenities' sites have a weighbridge.

Well worth doing & in my case the change to the trailer I was contemplating was abandoned.
