Ribcraft 4.8 wanted

Hi all
Im still looking for a Ribcraft 4.8 ideally with a double jockey seat and 60hp engine
My budget is upto 7000 but anything considered. Would also consider a Ribquest 4.8 but have never seen one for sale.
Many thanks
Jon

I've never seen a second-hand Ribquest 4.8 for sale in last 4 years of looking. Scarce beast indeed. This has been for sale for a while... Ribcraft 4.8m "Hornet" - boats for sale - Morgan Marine, UK, or break the piggy bank and blow it on this Ribcraft - FAFB

I do like the one at Morgans but only a single jockey and an extra seat pod is 524 + VAT from Ribcraft and then would want an A frame so bumps the price up but going to have a look

The Raider looks ok just waiting for some more photos to be emailed

Ive emailed the guy on ebay so hopefully speak to him soon but the condition doesn't look that good but might be ok after some work

Anybody know if the colour will come back on faded tubes ?

Thanks for your replies.

[QUOTE]

Seen this one a couple of times up close in the last few weeks as I've been in and out of RIBS Marine ( and seen on the water for the last few years)

Does need a little TLC, but that in reality from what I have seen is just a few days work of tweaking etc . Been on the river at Christchurch for at least the last 5 years - which means it gets a good freshwater flush in the river.

Sort of tempted myself ...NO NO NO ! I can go in and take some pics and have a more detailed look if you want. Good dealer - not the cheapest but have done and do good work for me & others on there.

Pete
