5m Rib Wanted

I am looking for a Rib of minimum of 5m for work and pleasure. I am willing to pay up to 7500 for the right boat. Must be viewable within a reasonable distance ot West Scotland (Isle of Bute) and must have a servicable trailer.

Good luck

Good luck with the search!

I'm still looking for something just a bit bigger than that - 5.8m - 6.2m ideally and with at least 100 HP. Newer the better.

Seems very little at the end of the market where I'm looking.

Have you checked out the following

Try Sport Scotland National Watersports Centre, 01475 531 000.
They sell heavily used, but 2 year olds, Vikings and Tornados, four stroke engines, fairly regularly.

I have a Flatacraft Force 5 with twin Yamaha 50 and four wheel trailer which I could part with. The boat is in excellent condition and regularly maintained regargless of cost.

I currently have a valiant v-490. From your description it sounds perfect. Bigger boat forces sale.
