The RNLI do sell them off but offer them to other SAR organisations first.
Any reason you want one?

Rnli ribs

Thanks for your reply.

It has been suggested by a local officer who purchases RIBs for the Fisheries Board . He feels that the ex RNLI ribs would be a reliable purchase at the right price. What do you think.
I'm looking for a family RIB 6Mtrs. with or without an engine .

They have open transoms so anything left on deck goes out the back.
They aren't cheap either, I bet you could buy a brand new 6m Destroyer cheaper than a used Atlantic.

Do you know what size of rib/engine hp would suit? If you gave an idea of budget, there might be a few suggestions made on here. Welcome to RIBnet, BTW. Always good to have another fellow countryman on board, helps with the numbers game & keepin' this lot in order

A used Atlantic 75 currently goes for around 14k, around 18k (no vat) ready to go complete with engines. Trouble is they tend to go to other SAR organisations.
