6 - 7M Rib Wanted

Hi! Very keen first purchaser looking for a 6 to 7m (ish) rib for coastal cruising, occasional wakeboarding etc.

Budget guide 15-20k

This will be my first owned boat but as a keen sailor and fortunate user of a friends scorpian, I'm keen for something that will stand up to the rough stuff when needed.

Will also be used for family etc so the ribeye style layout looks favourable, twin jockeys so I don't get lonely whilst driving, but fairly open minded! A ribeye would be great but again open minded.

100hp plus.

I'm Essex based but Happy to travel for the right boat and fairly regular to the south coast. Look forward to hearing. Thanks again for all the great advice on here. Cheers Tom

Morgan Marine at Brightlingsea have an XD RIBs 600 with 115 Opti. I've seen it albeit not in detail and it looks OK. Asking 15k I think. Where about a in Essex are you??

Don't know if this is still available, but they are very nice boats...

Boats for Sale - Second Hand and Used Boats - Southampton Dry Stack

No connection - just something I found when recently looking with a similar budget.

Selling this, based in Kent.

It's at the small end of your spec being a 585 (6.2 LOA) but punches above its weight and is virtually immaculate !Click image for larger version

RibTec, formally Southampton now owned by Ribeye I believe.

I've had several ribtec's. Nice stable, dry ride.
