WANTED: PROJECT. RIB and trailer, 4.5m + please.

Looking for a beaten up old RIB (4.5m or longer) to do up as a winter project.

Ideally on a trailer, not bothered if it's got an engine or not.

Would like to see what I can get for less than 1000.

Thanks.

Still in the pipeline mate. Problem is that the moment we buy it, we're going to have to move out of the compound with nowhere to put it! Ideally we're going to hope it doesn't sell then buy it just before easter, when I can then tow it home. Fingers crossed. That aside I'd rather have a RIB!!

Almost a RIB..

I have a 5.2m Lifeguard Inflatable. It is rated for up to 85hp and 12 people. Is a commercial spec boat and although well used has plenty of life left in it.
It has a very strurdy alloy floor and inflatable keel and rides quite well. The floor if certainly thick enough to have a console bolted to it.
It also has the advantage that it can be as it is now rolled up and put in a garage or shed for the winter.

Has no trailer but there are many out there on the web that could suit.
send me a PM if interested and it is a lot of boat for well under your budget..
