Ribcraft 4.8

I'm looking for a 4.8m Ribcraft.
What have you got.

I "think" i've seen all the ones on the mainstream portals.

I've looked at one - but needed tubes and an engine!

What are you all hiding out there thinking of selling?

You might need to be patient.

Ribcraft 4.8s, I suspect like a lot of brands fall into two camps, older boat in need of overhaul with faded tubes (tend to be single jockey) on basic trailer, or potentially older boat, but well maintained with dual-jockey with 2-stroke or 4-stroke engine and A frame on well-maintained road-legal trailer that will still command a premium. Discerning owners will wait until the spring when prices rise.

You do come across newer outfits during the summer where the owner has up-sized to a larger boat. In my experience there aren't many bargains to be had these days.

If you want to generate more interest state your top-budget in order to coax potential owners to consider selling, otherwise your magnet fishing. Just an observation.

Looked at another cheap boat today - but tubes had all the RYA graphics shadows and the engine hadn’t run for over 18 months.

I have the right budget for the right boat.

Hull must be good. Tubes must be serviceable. Not worried about having an A frame or the seating.
Engines - spec dictates price.

Don’t want to spend more than 10k
