5-6m RIB with 80-100hp WANTED

hi there, i am new to the site- so HI EVERYONE!

my family are looking for a 5 or 6 metre RIB, with a fourstroke outboard (80-100hp , would look at boats with slightly bigger engine!) would need to be in good condition, seats for 5+

would like it to have vhf, possibly have an fm radio, the standard console stuff really!!

trailer would be a must.

The lower the price the better!

(i know that i have been quite specific and that a boat with all my needs is probably unlikely to be out there but its worth a shot!)

Hi Nokesy and welcome to this madhouse! The boat of your dreams will be out there somewhere and we are moving into the season for bargaining. Ebay's a pretty good source to keep on the back burner.

Good luck!

I've just put up a Ribeye 600 on here with loads of pictures.

Rated to carry 8 with seating for at least 6. Loaded with gear. Complete with trailer.

The existing 2 stroke motor is worth 2500 at least so you'd only have to add around 1,500 to that for a 115 4 stroke. That brings the boat in at 11,500 which is still 3k under what a 4 stroke package would cost you

thanks for that, still looking into things, but i think that it a little over the budget we had in mind - we were thinking about half that really! ( probably asking for a lot, for not a lot i know but as courageous said, there will be a boat out there that suits our needs! thanks again!

Am currently having my Selva 550 re-upholstered prior to selling. A perfect family boat as it is fairly beamy for a 5.5m RIB. Has a near perfect condition F100 yamaha on it with only 80hrs on clock. Bench seat behind consule seats 3, 2 sit in front of consule and 3 easily on locker area at front. We have had 11 on without a squash. Cobra DSC radio, Garmin GPS 450s, yamaha gauges and compass on consule. 2x 25ltr fuel tanks, anchor chain and warp, 3x fenders, pump and fuel funnel. Trailer just serviced. Has new wheels and tyres (2), hubs and break wires all replaced and a new heavy duty winch. Full boat cover included. Not sure about cost of re-upholster yet but probably looking for about 8k for complete package. Can e-mail photos if needed.
