Looking for a 6+ mtr RIB


I'm looking for a good RIB which I'm going to use for family cruising and diving

The english RIB's are famous for their quality and completeness.

I prefer 6,5 or 6.8 mtr with hypalon tubes and a polyester hull complete with 100 + HP four stroke engine. one big or 2 smaller fuel tanks.
storage probabilities to store phote equipment
Navaigation lights on a bar with tow possibilities

Navigation and communication equipment


I'm living in the Netherlands but it is for me no problem to travel to the UK.

Can you help me to find my RIB,

Hi and welcome,

We have a 1997 6.5m Chasecraft for sale. Good seating and storage, plus a seat/bottle rack up front.

Engine is a 135HP Mariner two-stroke which would easily tow all sorts of things.

Asking price is 8,450 (plus VAT if applicable).

New Eco XR24

Our new Eco XR24 would meet your needs. It's slightly longer, at 7.2m. Please see

We don't have any old stock - the boats are being built to order. We are able to offer a discount for boats that the buyer is prepared to demonstrate occasionally. The hull is the same as the Osprey XR24, which was popular in Holland - there are some threads about it on this site and there is a video on youtube:

The Eco XR24 will either make a (very) fast boat with a big engine, or an economical one with a smaller engine. Seating and console layouts can be tailered to suit the customer's requirements and we can add electronics etc.
