What is this Zodiac RIB

I have just bought this Zodiac RIB. It was online and I need to make pick-up arrangements now.

It is a solid hull with a diesel inboard. Can anyone here know this type of boat and know what the specs are.

Also, what trailer will it need, does it need a twin axle.

Thanks

Here's Zodiac's current mil-pro range. Technical Specifications for reference.

Could be a Hurricane, and judging by the image I'd say yes, you'll definitely need a twin axle trailer to shift it. Mad Max would say... "Two days ago I say vehicle that would haul that tanker!"

Yep it's a Zodiac 733 some marked Hurricane and some not.

We have done several ground up restorations on these.

Check first for s seized turbo and give the motor and leg a service before starting. Otherwise should start and run no worries.

Tubes will be knackered and costly to replace. Don't scrimp on the new tubes as a boat this size and weight will destroy poor quality tubes in a heartbeat.

My workshop is in Western Australia and I can forward some photos of refurb if you like.,

We are in the middle of a huge one right now, going all black with carbon panels and stainless accessories etc.

Great boats that you would be battling to over capitalise on.

Should come with slings for lifting but you need a truck and cradle or a bad a$$ trailer. 2.3t dry.

Good buy, I am jealous, this is one of the last of the stern leg models available. The new ones are all jet and won't come to auction for another 10 to 15 years.
