€6,000

I am selling my Rib, the location of the Rib is in Menorca, collection only, or I can deliver to a destination on the Island of Menorca for a small cost.

Manufacturers Spec.

Dimensions- 4.08m Long / 1.88 Wide

Maximum Engine - 50HP

Maximum People x 5

Maximum Speed 44MPH

Total Length on trailer- 5.4m

The boat comes with registration paperwork, it was new in 2005, I took along time for us to find such a clean example, my wife is not confident on boats so I needed reliability.

The rib has lots of space and storage, under the main driver seat is a large storage area, we keep a large cool box and snorkelling gear, under bother other seats is also storage, in the front seat we keep the anchor and chain and foot pump, (all included with this package) but there is still room for other bits.

The Rib material is Hypolon, this is the best and the most durable for hot weather, it has no punctures and holds its pressure.

The boat has 2 wooden oars also stored away and included in the sale.

We purchased a folding ladder which neatly stores away under the middle seat, this is great for climbing back aboard.

The Boat serial number is- ESAVBR191FF405, it’s currently fully insured, it also comes with an owners manual, 3x keys, it has navigation lights, running lights, the fuel tank is 44L capacity, it has a mains electric shut off switch which can also be locked for security.

It has a bilge pump which is really useful for pumping out excess water, I had this renewed this year,it has a float switch as well as a manual switch, I also had the steering cable replaced this year as was getting stiff.

The Engine Serial number is- OP287946

The engine is a Petrol Mercury / Mariner (40 / 50hp Jet 30 (3 Cylinder) 2-Stroke) the oil is pre mixed with a separate 2 stoke oil tank so no mixing of oils required.

The engine has electronic tilt on the power arm and also another tilt button o the engine, the tilt buttons are very useful. The engine is key ignition start.

It has a 13 inch Stainless pitch Propeller, I also have a spare Propeller.

The engine is in VERY clean and in great condition, it starts first time every time, its been 100 % reliable for us.

Its been serviced and winterised whilst I've had it, it had 2 previous owners before me, they also had a good service record and looked after it with no expenses spared.

The boat has always lived on its trailer when not in use, we don't leave it the water for long periods, when finished we always fresh water rinse the engine and hosed down the boat.

I had a hand made boat and engine cover made, its a great fit, this can be seen in the photos.

We use the trailer regularly, its a Snipe trailer so good quality, everything works, it has a legal number plate board with fully working electrics, the wheels/tyres were new last year, I have also replaced all bearings in my ownership (2.5 years), I've also had the winch belt and hook renewed.

The Boat comfortably carries 5 people, I’ve had 7 occasionally for short trips, its very fast if you want it to be, handling is great, it can tow for donutting/water skiing and wake-boarding, it will comfortably get up on the plane with 5 people, its been great fun.

I have some good videos of the boat on the plane if required.

We are only selling as getting a larger boat.

Hi,

I´m very interested on the boat. 

The problem is that I would need to have the boat shipped to Denia, do you have any idea how much it would cost and what would be the best way to have it shipped inland?

Of course, if the transport to Denia is not too expensive or too complicated then,  I would fly over to Menorca to take a look at the boat, but from what I get from your pictures everything looks as it should be on a very weel mantined boat.

Please let me know if you have any idea on the transport cost or if you have somebody that I could contact to get a quote.

Thanks in advance for your help

Kind regards

Francisco
