6.5M-7.5M wanted!!

Hi all,
Based in Ireland and looking for a rib.
Few things I am looking for:
150hp 4 stroke plus
6.5 - 7.5m
Under deck fuel tank
Decent storage
Seating for at least 6
good trailer
budget €17000

I have seen a few ribs here in Ireland and there does not seem to be any decent boats for sale. The boat shall be mainly used on the west coast so a deep v is needed.

And suggestions or examples would be great!
I am willing to travel to UK too.

Maybe a Cobra would fit the bill? The design and layout certainly ticks the all the boxes you have mentioned.

Just factor in the cost of buying in the UK, very hard to find a rib that isn't tired here, not impossible but good boats rare.

Look at the usual suspects, well established brands with deep-v hulls- Ribcraft, XS, Redbay, Humber etc.

*top tip. I got mine delivered(towed) to Holyhead, it went onto ferry as unaccompanied freight and I just picked it up in Dublin port.

Enjoy the search
