Scorpion For Sale

A 7.5m Scorpion in excellent condition with striking yellow tubes and a Mariner 175hp outboard with hydraulic steering has just come on the market. Built in mid 1998 with offshore wide console and 60 gallon fuel tank. Seating is 2 x 2 jockey seats and roll back aft seat upholstered in dark blue. The Scorpion comes with ICOM vhf, GPS, echo sounder, 'A' frame with navigation lights and individual grey covers for the seats and console. Full service history.
Picture attached.

Does anyone know who this rib belongs to as I have asked Scorpion and get absolutely no response.

Errm No but out of interest a) How much and b) why are you interested? Thinking of having two RIBs or are the twin Mariners getting too thirsty for you?!

Does it need to be CE marked if its 1998? Can't recall when CE marking came into effect - thinking on it probably was around 98 as my BWM was CE marked. My '97 Scorpion isn't. Ah well, no biggy.

Maybe it's sold now as I've noticed that it's been on sale for some time now. It's also on brokerage here:

How about this as an alternative (at about the same price)...

"Scorpion owner rises to taunt"

Oh gawd here we go again...........

Each to his own. 20k for a used Scorpion - a boat that probably would cost 45k new - probably the best built RIBS in the UK vs whatever one of those dodgy South African trans blah blah whatever it is thingys? I know what I would rather do. In fact I did.

Only thing about this particular one is that doesn't appear to be new-tech outboard (opti/ficht/hpdi) & doesnt appear to have a trailer so seems lot of dosh.

No No No Manos you are still suffering from the repetative form of U.k. Ribs are big Reep off syndrome .


Its all best forgotton now and we can all walk round this very unfortunate syndrom,No need to bring this very soar point back to the forum,as we all know what happend last time. Dont Wee.


Alan I knew it woldnt take you long before you popped out on this one . 39 mins to be precise at the mention of a Scorpian rib.

She is a nice looking boat and I am sying no more,exept its june 1998 when RCD came in,if anybodys is reley interested.

Thanks Charles,Alan ,Manos,Pepper,H20 for all being predictable, and that includes me.eg RCD

Happy ribbing
