Cougar Marine have been synonymous with cutting-edge powerboat technology since 1969, initially dominating the racing market and subsequently adapting the designs to produce RIBs for the leisure and commercial markets
The R8 is based upon the Formula Honda 225 class hull but with some alterations to improve handling and provide a level ride without compromising performance. The hypalon tubes are tapered and add to the aerodynamic style whilst the layout is versatile, plenty of seating and storage throughout means she'll suit a variety of uses
This has been a family boat; the engine was replaced in 2016 and she has been professionally maintained throughout her life. The upholstery is showing some wear and so cosmetic attention may be due, however, the well developed design and stylish finish makes this Cougar R8 a RIB worth getting excited about!

Kelly S - I've emailed you, check spam if not received please. Thanks, Corinne
I am interested in this boat as I do quite a lot of diving and looking for a fast Rib I noticed from the photos I will need to get the interior over the winter re-trimmed and the engine serviced and maybe the trailer also serviced rear wheel bearings and brakes,
I am making a firm offer subject to viewing and placing a deposit of £26,000 I have the cash to buy immediately once I have viewed and see trialed the boat
kind regards Kelly
