Bare boat RIB hire

A pal of mine is looking to rent a RIB next week some time for a couple of days.

He want's a reasonably large boat, Ideally a minimum of 7 metre.

Can anyone give me any info on this.

Hi Wayne,

I've never been to Levington but Richard was there to have a sea trial of Blue Ice before we bought her.

We've still got a few tweaks to do to the website following feedback from people a few months ago. If you've got any ideas for improvements/additions to the site, please let us know.

Cheers!

Jon, have you or your friend done a search on Google - there are a few to choose from. Can't recommend any personally though.

Lou,
No, I was asked by Chris Murdock if I new any rib hire people, he's the Director of Nauticalia ltd, they sell a load of brassy, ropey, woody kinda stuff from various shops around the place.

I said I would ask on this worthy site.

Robin, cheers, I'll take a look, (and do a google search)

Ta, JF

Have you asked Rogue Wave? Also Termite has a RIB for bareboat I think (if he's speaking to you! )

On this forum, there's also Islander (dunno if he does bareboat but worth asking) and a few others like H20events.
