Thames RIB Rental

Hi,

Can anyone recommend a company for bareboat RIB hire on the Tidal Thames? I've seen a few companies, but they all seem a bit overpriced, considering I did my RYA courses for less than they are asking for just 1 day's worth!

Alternatively I could consider buying something around 5m with a 75hp engine, preferably with a bench style, rather than jockey seat.

Any advice apreciated!

Hi,

I own/moore a RIB in Tidal Thames. Local companies all have chartered ribs with skipper...

My rib comes with mooring as well, message me if you are interested.
There are some other ribs nearby so I can introduce them to you.

Cheers,
Vandy

In that case I don't thing there is anybody I'm afraid.

You could try something on the Medway?
