We were being asked for hire more often. Although are ribs available in the Solent area, the hire charges are set ( due to the hi quality of the ribs) at the high end. Most of the clients wanted to chase kids in dinghy's, BBQ on the beach and not be paranoid about sand etc getting in the boat and the dinghy's marking the fender.
We purchased three used Ribs, all are well maintained. We currently have a Ribcraft 6.5 ( reduced 7.5 version) a Leeway 6.5 and a Humber 5.5. They are used looking but we just want you to enjoy using them so the odd bump and scratch is no problem. We charge £100 per day for the Humber and £110 per day for the Other two + vat, you pay for the fuel ( Red portable cans so you can re fill if you chose ). Over 21, RYA PB2 and above needed. We have good insurance cover £500 excess. If you were to bash it we will look at realistic repair used parts etc if we can find them ( not props!).Happy to do a deal off season for a few days.
They have been out for ten weeks solid this season, so we will add to the fleet this winter with two 6 meter Cutter hulls.
Just for your info We are reverting to our official registered name of Bembridge Marine LTD from trading as Bembridge Outboards which no longer reflects what we do.
Any interest give us a ring / email.
