5 meter rib wanted

Not having much luck in my quest to find a rib. I am looking for a 5 meter or near to that size. Im looking for a good used rib for diving family fun fishing preferably 4 stroke outboard with vhf fish finder that sort of thing. With a good trailor something that needs no work doing to it ready to use. Been looking for a rib now for about 5 months with no luck. There must be a shortage of ribs in the Northeast. If anyone can suggest any other places to look then it would be appreciated. Ive tried Ebay gumtree with no luck. My budget is about 3800
If anybody out there knows of a rib then please let me know. Ive had a few leads but no replies. Im a genuine buyer can collect and pay cash .

Maybe you have to be prepared to travel outside the northeast? I travelled 160 miles in August to collect my '5 metre' and am delighted.

Well, I guess the next issue is how much work you're prepared to do once you've secured your 'ideal' rib? Your budget suggests you might need to invest a few quid on top of the initial purchase price to arrive at your perfect rib.

I would respectfully suggest that you need to be prepared to spend a bit more money to get what you are looking for with no work needed.
A good second hand trailer for a 5m rib is going to cost between 600 and 800
A good fourstroke engine will be starting from 1500 for a small one (30hp) to 3000 plus for a sixty or seventy.
A decent 5m hull with good tubes is going to be 2k plus
Then there is steering, console fish finder etc etc
A good 5m rib for 3800 on a trailer with a decent sized fourstroke engine could be split into trailer ,hull and engine and sold for 5000 plus fairly easily.
I've got a 5m humber with no patches and a 60 Yamaha two stroke, on a good trailer in ready to use condition that will be for sale when the sun comes out for 4000 plus.
With a latish seventy four stroke it would be worth at least 5500

Bang on the money!!

I've offered Trevor my 5m humber (it's a 5.3 as it happens) with a suzi 4 stroke for 5000 (it's also in good nick) but he does have a limited budget & can't stretch to that.

I've since got a buyer on the 4 stroke with a mariner 2 stroke trade in, which makes the boat just about within Trevor's budget.

Unfortunately I haven't been able to get in touch with him since the price (and spec) have changed.

Pictures

Hello Daniel, I was waiting to see the photographs that you said you would send me when the Rib was ready. So if you can send me up to date photos of the rib as it stands then we will take it from there. Cheers Trevor
