Which Rib to Buy

Hi Everyone

Just like to introduce ourselves Ella & Mark, we live in Ocean Village Southampton and have decided after going out a on friends rib to purchase a rib for ourselves.

We would love it if anyone could recommend a rib for our needs, we have been looking at Avon Ribs but there are not many of them around at the moment, so could anyone advise of a good make with the following:

1. 4 metres long
2. To use in Southampton water to Isle of wight
3. To have proper seats, rather than a jockey seat
4. Max budget 3500, for used RIB

Any help would really be appreciated.

Thanks
Ella & Mark

hi Ella

this is the sort of boat you would be looking at with a bench seat rather than jockey seats

That would be great but can only go up to 4 metres, storing in a stack which has a 4 metre limit.

Given Budget and length constraints think Avon SR4 is the way to go,have you tried the 'RIBs and SIBs for sale' FB group?

Crosshouse Trailers just round the corner from Ocean Village are quite helpful when it comes to RIBs. It might be worth taking a stroll around there and talking to Jasper. They may be able to assist in finding a RIB / discussing what you want.

Southampton Dry Stack, also just down the road from you, tend to have a few RIBs for sale.
