PeteM has a very nice, cheap SR4, south coast though

We've a few also, including a Valiant DR4 with 2006 Mariner 30hp EFI 4 stroke (elect start power tilt), trailer etc. Needs a weekend's TLC but motor is a good un' - 2,750 or there abouts.

Got a few pics if your interested or its on our site below. Further away again though in Plymouth, Devon

I got a new toy yesterday so I have to sell my Sr4 its a 1991 delux centre console, 2001 mariner 4 stroke 40hp and a 2008 roller trailer 2750 for a quick sale.

Also have to sell my SR4.7

I think it's a 1999 with a 2002 Yamaha 70

It's hasn't been used since it was serviced so it's all ready to go

Don't be confusing an Adventurererer with a Searider. One is tutt, the other is ace.

Not been on the water for a few years sad to say until last autumn I got the old tender out at north wales by the caravan

Enjoyed the 1hr out so I think its time to get back out in spring still got loads of stuff still in the boxes Seems a shame not to own a rib again

Don't really want one that requires a 4x4 etc and must be easy to launch by myself for a spot of fishing etc

Only me & the wife at home now & she is happier on land

I just use a 3.8m sib, inflate it with a bravo so no messing around with trailers, I'd love a rib but can't afford one
I had a speedboat a few years ago, I prefer the sib cause its easier and cheaper to use, less maintainance etc
I want to get out in the sea this year, looking at trying north Wales, possibly Anglesey

Hi, the engine is a mariner 4 stroke 40hp electric tilt and gas assisted tilt built in 2001, the carbs have been ultrasonically cleaned and it's been serviced.

The trailer hasn't been used much, it was built in 2008 it's been towed 750 miles recently and is perfect for the rib, great tyres and bearings

I sold my last sr4 the same but 2 stroke for 3250 but I need to sell this one as got a really nice 4.7 and mrs w is going to kill me.....
