RIBTEC 585 Circa 1996
Here is a family boat, which the vendor has owned since 2000. It is now, regretfully, for sale as this is now a second boat but the owners have very much enjoyed using this RIB for many years. It has been used recently – right up until June 2019 and is now in our display and available to view with us 7 days a week.
The vendor has always dry-sailed this boat and cleaned then replaced the cover when not in use. We believe the RIB and engines to be mid to late nineties. This RIB is sitting on a single axle trailer which has disconnected brakes, but in June 2019 the vendor had the bearings replaced. It also has new mudguards and a new jockey wheel. The trailer has not been in the water since the bearings were replaced.
Specification of this RIB includes:
Twin Mariner 60hp 2 stroke oil-injection outboards showing around 260 hours each, paired with aluminium propellers
3 double jockey seats (helm seat recently re-covered) - so very family and friend orientated as you can sit 6 people down on the seats in a comfortable and safe way.
Stainless-steel A Frame
