Hi,

I'm looking for a rib of between 4.5 and 5.5 meters. must be in good condition, have at least 50hp (preferably 4 stroke but not essential). ideally looking for a ribcraft 4.8 but will consider other makes.

maximum budget 5500

many thanks.

You'll probably have to stretch the budget a bit, to get a nice RC4.8/4-stroke, but you should find an older one with a 2-stroke 50/60 for that sort of money.

An excellent choice, but not enough diamonds in the box for one of them.

RIBase
What about a Tornado 4.8 with Yammie 60hp 2-stroke? Boat has been on FAFB for a while, but is within budget, looks tidy and not a million miles away from you. I don't know seller.
Tornado RIB - FAFB

A clean 6-7 year old RC4.8 with a 60hp 4-stroke.

A touch more and you'd be in SR4.7 territory.

Just taken a PX Zodiac 4.8m with a Mariner 50 two stroke on an as new braked trailer. the whole package is in very good condition and has a checkable history - the local main dealer has serviced it from new. It will be sold at around 5200 if you are interested.
