Buy and sell new and used boats at Boats and Outboards

Above is popular but occasionally people have been scammed on it, for research though won't do any harm. Click on ribs on the left hand menu.

Ribs For Sale Boat Yard, Rigid Inflatable Boats for Sale

I don't think there is a good one! Ebay, Gumtree and boats and outboards are full of scams and overpriced tat that will confuse you.

Find a fishing boat seems to fair better, but doesn't see much leisure action.

Jbt have stuff but not high turnover to get a big picture.

Individual manufacturers sometimes sell their trade ins but usually quite brand specific.

Actually ribnet for sale pages probably give you an idea as much as anything but beware some people have ambitious valuations and others use the frustrating POA...

if it is new ribs you have in mind see Serious ribbing with PARKER RIBS | Parker Ribs
you should contact Alex on alex@nautilusaustralia.com.au and mention Parker Ribs
Alex has only just taken delivery of two Parker cabin boats

Best of luck in your search.

One of my dive branch members a few years ago bought a new RIB in the UK and had it shipped out to NSW when he bought a house there. I think he bought at the London boat show ie a 'boat show special' apparently it was well worth paying the import taxes etc. I also think he got exactly what he wanted. It was about 6m, I think a Ribcraft with a 150 Yam. He finds the cost of spares/service items in OZ such a rip off that on his regular trips to the UK he buys these bits and pieces here. He also makes sure he keeps it out of the sun inside between use.

good hunting

Mine came from Se Swift Boats - Home – speak to Dave. With the boat show this coming weekend they may well get some part exchanges in.

Rock marine have a couple of boats of a decent size, including an earlier version of mine - http://www.rockmarineservices.co.uk/...&st=11#results

Leon at Wolf Rock Marine sold me my last one, they import Brig and again will have part exchanges following the boat show - Ribs For Sale | The Wolf Rock Boat Company | buyarib.com

Humber are great to talk to and will give you a sensible quote - Humber Inflatables - rigid inflatable boats manufacturers and suppliers of quality RIBS I’ve checked my emails and they are talking 20K for a new one.

XS ribs are good too, they will play with config to suit what you want - XS Ribs Commercial Leisure Range of Craft 3.6 - 10 m


Peter is a Plymouth chap, buys and sells 2nd hand and happy to hunt for what you want - Browse our Listings | BoatsandOutboards4Sale
