agree over £4k is too much unless its newish or with newish outboard. but I think £3500 for a nice as your possibly going to find example is a fair price .after all that sort of money isn't going to buy much of a 5 metre and above you would be back down to tatty needing tlc territory

I bought mine last year for 3k. Really exceptional boat. Hallmark rollercoaster trailer. M40c outboard...Bit old looking outside but was found to be like new inside. No extras, just v good cover. Spent about a grand kitting out....

It's a bargain in my opinion. Engine is superb and the fun is unreal.

I'd have no hestitation recommending the old Tohatsu engine to's impeccable and fast.

Been freely offered over 4k over a dozen times now. Literally seem to get an offer per month. Will never sell anytime soon.

I haggled to get 500 off mine. If I had known what I know now....I wouldn't even have risked haggling...would have just bought it without question.

Absolutely superb small Rib.

Glad I got this one too. Have you seen the costs involved in refining, tidying up scrappy ones....scary.
