trailer : 2008 vlemmix twin axle - max 2700 kg with dutch registration

the sale includes lines, anchor+line, a cover for the console, spare propeller, etcetera(list available upon request)

The boat has been used for regatta race management and as a camera boat on the IJsselmeer/the Netherlands (fresh water) and has been dry stacked most of the time.
I have been enjoying the boat a lot as I am a strong believer there are not that many RIB manufacturers which build boats as well as Deltapower does and the handling/seakeeping of this boat still amazes me every time I drive it.

The boat is for sale as there is a new project looming on the horizon and having 3 boats is simply too much, so with some pain it has been decided to move on....

The boat is in top condition and ready to use (except for some new tires on the road trailer)
VAT has been paid - proof of this is avaiable
records on conversion are are available.

please pm me or send an email to '' for price / more pictures, details and information / etcetera...
