Ballistic RIBs are highly regarded for their practicality, high quality of construction (including Hypalon tubes) and all-round abilities, often compared to Ribcraft and Ribeye. This Ballistic 5.5 RIB is presented in very good condition having clearly been lightly used and well cared for. Fitted with the desirable Evinrude ETEC 90 for a great blend of performance, economy and low maintenance costs, with recent Simrad combined chart plotter/fishfinder and complete with a galvanised road trailer, all ready to enjoy. A great package that represents excellent value for money in a condition that would put many far younger RIBs to shame!
