ribeye 600 or similar wanted

there have been a couple of nice boats on this forum for sale but both are now sold so am wondering if there are any more out there.......

am looking for a ribeye 600 or something similar, ideally with 2 double jockey seats and a bench behind, also ideally a 115hp on the back

Scotland would be easier but am willing to travel for the right boat, would need to have a roadworthy trailer

budget of around 20K but would be delighted to spend less!

is there anything out there?

Welcome to the forum Tom.

That's a decent budget, but suspect you will need to travel, as this type of RIB is more prevalent down south. Like everything, do your research, get an engine compression test and engine printout and ask for more paperwork than your average prenuptial!

Take it you've seen these?

2009 Rbeye A600 with Yamaha F115
https://rockmarineservices.co.uk/sb_...3/?boat_id=168

2011 Ribeye A600 refurbished at Ribeye with Yamaha F100
https://www.boatsandoutboards.co.uk/...ye-a600/237716

Wildcard, 2002 Ribeye S600 with Yamaha 2-stroke 150hp
https://www.boatsandoutboards.co.uk/...ye-s600/238679

I see Ribeye are selling military grey impression hypalon tubes, slightly imperfect for £4,800.

thanks for the advice, makes sense. I had seen those boats and one particularly is of interest but would be good to know if there are other boats available too in case there are better deals out there

thanks

Hi I have an Avon Adventurer which has two double jockey seats and large centre consol and Abar but no bench seat with a 2013 Mariner Optimax with low hours and road trailer. I am pretty close to Glasgow, Troon. My phone number is 07876 036412
