Hi guys, have recently looked at part ownership of the RIB in the piks. The boat doesn't seem to have a make on it, it's 8M but engine is a diesel Yanmah 320. I've gone from an old Avon Sea Rider with a Mercury 75 on the back so don't know too much about inboards and larger RIBS. From the piks could anyone estimate a rough value? Thanks.

You at least need an age and hours on the engine

There was an ocean rib on ebay this week sold for 11k with the same engine you then see them for sale at 30k plus so a vast difference between them
Tbh I'd be wary of that engine looking at the corrosion on it it could be a liability
The intercoolers burst at the ends due to internal corrosion & that one looks pretty badly affected
I'd get a good report before you commit
Easy to spend Łk's on those engines especially if they have been neglected
Not saying it's a lemon just be very careful

Lots of surveyors in Soton that can quickly and easily give you a bit of peace of mind...
