RIB wanted - UK 5m to 6m upto 5 years old

Hi All

I am looking for a RIB around 6m with braked trailer and towable with SUV. Ideally no later than 2013 ish, mainly for social and the odd fishing trip, so seating area preferable. Not so worried about engine size, but greater than 90hp. Seen a few I like such as the ZAR, but a bit expensive new for me. Going to be used around Anglesey.

Budget around 25k to 35K

Prefer northern England, but will travel for the right RIB.

Seems to be a lack of RIBs around with this spec right now!

Hi Martyn, we can make you a boat to your specification within that budget. We have a great 5.8m. Thanks Gaz

It looks a heavy duty professional style rib? We were looking for more of a social rib that we can take out on calmish days, find a bay, anchor up, swim and come back?

Not sure how much you customise.

Thanks
Martyn

Hi Martyn, the boat in the picture was for a dive club but we can make you a boat to suit your precise needs. We can completely customise a boat to your exact requirements. We also have many colour options available. Thanks Garreth

With that budget, you are into new build territory, the world is your lobster.

Few? Other than:

Ribcraft
Redbay
Humber
Ribeye
XS
Kraken
Delta
Cobra
Scorpion
At least some ospreys
Ribquest
Northcraft
MST
Island Ribs
Bembridge OB/Shearwater

Thatís a lot British manufacturers for a niche product, And they are just the ones off the top of my head...
