Ribcraft or Ribtec 585

Looking for one of these with a budget of 10-15k (preferably at lower end), incl trailer. Have a good idea of what's on the open market but interested to hear of any other boats people on this forum may be thinking of selling. Thanks.

Hi
I have a ribtec 585 with a mariner 90 go 2 stroke with internal oil tank. It's got new tubes and also quite tidy. It also has a new full length cover. If you're interested can you send me your email so I can send photos etc

Regards Eurof

I will be selling my Ribcraft 585 soon, there was a guy supposed to be picking it up but I haven't heard from him. it will be 15k, outboard and trailer has just been serviced. I ran it to Alderney and back last August but sadly I have a couple of health issues so I doubt if I'll be back on the water this year but not 100% sure on that yet...

Does 40 knots and she's lovely. I haven't advertised her yet as theres a couple of jobs I want to do on her before she goes. She's locked away in storage at the moment, so as soon as it gets warmer she'll be ready.

Of course you can they are both 5.85m long Ribs. Ribcraft are very nice, but they are not unique, and as with all second hand rib purchases the price and condition not the badge on the tubes should be the deciding factor.
