Wanted RibCraft 5.85 and above

Hello,

I am looking for a solid second-hand RIB in good condition for use on the Thames in London:

Specifications:
  • length from 5.5m to 7.0m
  • single engine
  • less than 10 years

Ideal designs:
  • RibCraft 5.85
  • Redbay 6.50
  • Humber
  • Delta Power

Many thanks!
Ben

Hi Ben, welcome to Ribnet. Are you intending to use the boat mainly on the tidal Thames between Richmond & the Thames Barrier? Or are you intending using it further afield in the estuary & beyond? The only reason I ask, it's that there are strict speed limits on the "inner city" section of the Thames that you would probably find very frustrating with any of the RIBs on your list.

Ahh! that makes sense then. There was a 585 forsale a couple of weeks back, have you looked in the for sale section?

One here, and in Essex. Looks like it's one of the ex-London 2012 Olympic boats, as I'm sure that red colour was the specification, with Etec 115hp Ribcraft 585 for sale, 2012, EB3040 - Boats.co.uk

Or 2006 one with Suzuki DF140 (low hours) in Gloucestershire area. No pictures other than thumbnail at initial search. https://www.boatsandoutboards.co.uk/.../214927?op=map

I thought the Olympic boats were all Suzuki powered, I know Ribcraft aren't Evinrude dealers.

Might have been repowered.

Here's an ex-Olympic one with Suzuki DF90 which would be a bit lack lustre given it'll take 140hp. https://uk.youboat.com/buy/ribs/ribc...gine-and/95584

Thanks for sharing the links.

I am looking for at least 4 jockey seats so I will pass on the orange one (central consols look like a tractor to me... )

The second advert is expired unfortunately...

I will buy with my company so VAT is not an issue.

Ben

Are you going to use it commercially then? If so, it will most likely need coding, which is a different can o'worms. If you're not using it commercially & reclaiming the VAT, I'd keep quiet

I did not say it was a British company!
You have light coding rules in France for boats of less than 24m.

The boat might be reflagged...

I have owned a number of Stormforce 11 and Humber RIBs but sold everything last year. And I miss a boat now...

Hi Ben, I don't have his details, he's a guy on The Ribcraft FB page. PM me your email address & I'll forward it to him. I've posted on FB that you are interested & the vendor should drop by Ribnet.

does that not actually mean VAT is an issue? in that presumably you are hoping to recover some / all the VAT and therefore need to to be sold by a VAT registered business?

It may not need coded [if a UK vessel] if only being used by the directors/employees and their friends/family for pleasure free of charge. I've no idea what that does to its VAT status though. Certainly HMRC would view that as a BIK.

You snooze you lose. That was a very desirable boat at a fair price, it wasn't going to to hang around.
