Liskeard Cornwall UK|
Solent RIBs are designed and built around a high performance racing hull making this a great handling boat. This 2008 Solent 6.5m RIB has a 2016 Yamaha 150hp (less than 100hrs) meaning the RIB will be capable of cruising at 35knots plus.
Internally this Solent RIB has a large deck area which is ideal for storing towable toys or water skis. The console has been fitted with a Garmin GPS plotter and Icom VHF radio as well as new Yamaha guages (the radio/CD player doesn't work and never has since I bought this) Behind the console there is seating for a helm and nav on jockey seats with back supports and two further jockey seats that offer superb comfort and security when travelling at the high speeds that this RIB is capable of. All seats have storage underneath. A frame has nav lights and pig tail tow ring, as well as D rings on the transom.
As well as the jockey seats there is a bench seat at the stern of the boat and a console seat in the bow increasing the total seated capacity to 6/7 people making the boat great as a family RIB.
This boat has not been used since September 2019 (mainly due to COVID lockdown) and the tubes are still airtight. It has been stored in a barn under a purpose built cover, with a single axle trailer - refurbished in 2018. It is not a brand new boat, so I will list the scruffy bits:
Two of the handles have damage (see images)
Slight wear under bow.
One of the locker lids is cracked.
I can see nothing significant in the GRP.
No dings in the propeller.
I have more images if required. The RIB is viewable just outside Plymouth near Trerulefoot (A38)
