What do they do with Stolen RIB's?

I know that seems like a stupid title but the RIB market in the UK isn't all that big, so selling a stolen RIB most be a no no. They could be split as much as possible but even then?
So what do you think? Taken out of the country?
Thought this after reading Malthouse post about the stolen 8.5m Cobra and the young lad.

Our Rib was stolen in August and recovered. As I understand it, there was a group who sent them to Spain in containers.
