Does look good.

Brand new engine model just into this country so no track record but no reason to suppose it'll not be another good one. Not heard any negatives so far.

Nope, the Vipermax has evolved from dive boat ancestry. They're built like brick sh!thouses and heavier than planets,

I know, I drilled one to fit a bung.

OP, most of us here have been in your position. It's a heavy investment, the options/variables are endless and making a decision often feels impossible.

You have a collective brains trust of years of experience here telling you to seriously consider the Vipermax.

I very, very much doubt if you'll better that rig with your budget.

I can't put it any more simply and won't mention it again.

Thank you very much for your reply and valuable information. I think you are absolutely right about mooring. I have now decided to take it out of the water each time we leave and slip it back when we arrive. Really good advice. Re RIB choices - I'm still weighing things up and your information is very useful. Thank you. Maxwell

Maxwell,

I took last years XS 7m boat show demo. Had a great first season.

PM me if you would like a chat about my ‘journey’ (pun fully intended).

The ribs that many have suggested to you are for sure very capable ribs and will perform as expected. May I just add that you should not dismiss Parker on the grounds that Parker Ribs are not UK built. We have an ex-demo model available for sale a Parker 750 RS pre-rigged for Mercury Verado . This is a 2012 model which was shown at the Southampton Boat Show in 2012 and later returned to our company in Poland. Used only on the lakes by Parker Poland. Last year the engine was removed and sold but never replaced. I have had three Parker 750RS as demo models so I know from first hand that she is a very capable rib with excellent sea handling capabilities. I can offer this rib as is pre-rigged for Verado or with a brand new Mercury Verado 250/300 from stock. Photo attached

If you are interested please PM me your email address I will send you a full specification and price

we have one new black mercury V8 300HP in stock so early confirmation is critical as these engines are very difficult to get

The price for the Parker 750RS with brand new Mercury V8 black, stainless steel propeller is EURO 46,000.00 ex-Czosnow, Poland net excluding VAT @ 20%

with VAT EURO 55,200.00

I will put the specification in the section RIB FOR SALE

this is a limited offer due to engine availability which is offered on the terms first come first served

Basically £52k to UK.

Is that with a trailer and engine fitted Andre for those that maybe interested.

Out of interest, how much is the v8 300 on own?

I'm not dismissing them, I'm stuffing the piggy bank for a 10m Baltic Cruiser in full stealth guise.

Hi I have had a number of ribs over the years the best hull I have come across which I still have and would not change from is a 15 year old scorpion with a inboard which was within your budget , I took around the UK in 8 days this year ,petrol can be hard around Scotland ,I would go for the biggest you can manage they all get smaller in a heavy sea

this is without a trailer and the engine would be installed with full Mercury warranty. As for the engine price then best check with EP Barrus or any UK Mercury dealer as we are not permitted to sell Mercury engines on their own outside of Poland. It is OK when installed on a rib. These new V8 engines are very difficult to get hence limited offer.
