Hull is the famous Avon Searider heavy duty design with deep V (deadrise 24 deg) and superb rough sea ability. As used worldwide by Military and Commercial operators including the Royal Navy, law enforcement/government agencies, offshore organisations etc. The design allows the craft to operate in the most difficult conditions.
The 4.7M length ensures easy deck stowage on board small patrol and fishing protection vessels. Craft is easy to launch from shore as a high speed rescue craft. Hull is fitted with water ballast system (this is currently blanked off with removable kit).
Important! Overall length of 15' 5" means this is the largest and most capable RIB that can still be fitted into a standard garage so easy to store securely and safely. Compared to the common 4.0m Searider, the 4.7m is much more capable with significantly greater capacity. Beam is 6'6". Please measure your garage before considering a purchase! MINIMUM GARAGE LENGTH TO STORE COMPLETE BOAT ON TRAILER IS 5.10 METRES.

Everything is in truly excellent condition, hull, tubes, transom etc extremely well kept and un-damaged.
Fresh water washed and flushed after every use.
To sum up; 4.7m Seariders' are very rare compared to the 4m and 5.4m but this is the extremely scarce and very high spec military version of the 4.7m in superb totally original condition
