7 to 7.5m humber, rib craft or similar

I'm looking for a 7.5m (ideally humber ocean pro or offshore)

Looking for function over form

Happy to pay for something that's been loved and cherished

Must be double console, ideally with a pair of jockey seats behind

Must be outboard, not inboard, ideally 2 stroke di but happy to consider four stroke,

Would prefer:
Twin axle trailer
One previous owner
Service history
Ideally orange, blue or black tubes
Range odd nav and smart dials
Stainless a frame

Funds ready for the right rib

Do you have an approximate budget range? Some indication will help...

Worth checking the sale section - there are some really nice ribs for sale there!

If it's really a choice go for Ribcraft...you're not too far from the Factory,and I'm sure they'd be happy to give you the lowdown tour

Maybe worth checking this too: Redbay 7.4m



I know this boat, in fact I saw it being built. It belongs to one of the team at Redbay Boats (the local RNLI helm) and was built to the usual RBB standards plus a little bit of Special Love. It has lived under a cover at the yard since and hasn't seen a great deal of use as the owner has the choice of using any boat in the "Dreamworks" and he puts it about a bit...

The ONLY hull to consider within this size range has to be the 7m Vipermax.
