Looking for quality RIB 6.0 - 6.5 metres

My old boat is now sold so am firmly on the market for a RIB.

Around 6.0 - 6.5 metres OAL (MUST be under 7.0m OAL).

Ideally two single jockey seats at helm, rear bench seat, must be very good condition with plenty of engine for size of RIB.

Budget is around the £30k mark.

Is the length a storage thing?...seems a shame with that Budget to put limits on your choices.
Good luck with youre search

Unfortunately yes. I leave my boats in the water in a marina as I boat all year round and it gives me quick and easy access. At 7.1 metres OAL the per metre cost rises substantially.

You could still include an RC 6.8 or Equivalent then!?...I'm down your way soon if you'd like a try in one

You may be surprised what difference 1/2 a meter in length (and corresponding Beam) makes

All about the length and width

What about something like a Brig or Ribeye?

Length is all in the eye of the beholder. Some measure tubes others hull, some with outboard some without. The question is how long is yours

"About"??...that's not like you!...
I concour Measuring can always be a little subjective BUT I've never seen ANY HINT a Tape measure used in decades of Boating either ....either dealing with Harbour officials or anyone else,launching..recovering...mooring...(even on places like Lomond where they are pretty Anal about such things)...OR staying In Harbour on Pontoons for extended periods.
Works for me.."It's a Ribcraft 6.8" always seems to get it sorted"

Don't tell me you refer to your R.C as a 7.1!...."about" Paul
