Wanted 8m plus rib

8m plus rib wanted preferably coded but at the very least easily codeable. No big cutaways in transom. Seating for at least 8 not including suicide seat. Ideally twin engined. Budget up to 25k plus vat.

Thames RIB experience are currently selling one of their 10m Ribcrafts. Seating for 12+2. Appears to be in tidy condition but I gather they have a policy of replacing them every x years (boat is a 2008). 15k+vat (no engines). Seems like a lot of boat for the money! Only downside is its too big to go on a road trailer so it would have to be an HGV job.

Thats alot of boat and engines for not alot of money...........
I'm sure you will find a project but is that what your looking for?
One of Bear Grills old ribs is on the river medina ( near cowes ), massive RIB, not sure if it was single or twin inboards and I'm guessing after its adventures had been converted for rib-rides ( lots of seating pods etc ).
However, its not moved in years, resembles a floating shed covered in seagull poo and last time I looked it was 80k

Who's got that then? I'm interested in looking at any options. Maybe ambitious but I was told that with last rib and ended up under budget 😃

Have you checked out the Redbay used section? I've not checked it recently but they often have boats that would meet much of your criteria...

I did thanks. Even phoned and emailed but they don't seem bothered. Never returned calls. Like them too. Not sure about a covered boat though as will be alone a lot.

Nice boat for the money but probably not the easiest for single working.
