Broker's Comments

This is a RIB with a fine pedigree! Built by South Boats of Cowes to a design by Arthur Mursell/TT Boat designs, with Henshaw tubes and a Yanmar engine driving through a Hamilton jet unit. RIBs don't get much better than that

Built to spec for a highly experienced and knowledgeable owner she has been well maintained and lives on a Hydrolift boat lift to keep the hull in top condition. The tubes have some colour fading in places but this is cosmetic only

Although commercial standard in construction she's a stylish looking boat. The console is well designed for comfort and ease of use and the engine box is cushioned and comfortable

A solid, stylish, fast yet safe boat fully equipped to take to sea and enjoy.

The Hydrolift boat and a RM purpose built twin wheel trailer (always stored undercover) may be available by negotiation
