The boat is in superb condition with unmarked, deck and polished hull and excellent tubes with no patches or repairs. The boat has always been under cover, has very few hours use just 90 and has been well cared for and therefore essentially looks like a new rib.
The superb Yamaha fuel injected outboard benefits from a recent service, we tested the rib and it performed faultlessly, started literally first flick of the key after standing for weeks and showed surprising performance and didn’t miss a beat. The boat has been fully checked over, the chartplotter VHF, stereo and instruments all work as they should ,the steering is precise and free and it accelerates and goes in and out of gear effortlessly.
Any questions please contact Stratford Boats & Outboards on 07786031841 and please see our other ebay items if you are looking for something a little bit smaller but in the same condition.
It is perfectly set up with a 2010 60 hp Yamaha power trim and tilt electric start EFI outboard that is in superb condition. It is in excellent mechanical and cosmetic order, it accelerates very impressively and smoothly and feels so stable at speed , The 60hp outboard is very powerful and practical for this rib and ideal for pulling a skier, wakeboarder or inflatables It is lightweight and a practical size and has the advantage of not costing a small fortune each time you take it out. This is a pristine engine. It starts first flick of the key, always meticulously washed through with no corrosion
This rib has a great layout with seating for two at the bow, seating in front of the helm and a large bench seat this makes this rib a very practical boat and can realistically take out two families unlike so many other ribs with jockey seats or a poor seating layout.
Bombard SB ribs are built under Zodiac and offer super quality. We have a Zodiac Pro 500 in our unit at the moment and this hull is the Zodiac Pro hull which are renowned for their stability and performance. There is a big difference from this rib to many other cheaper models as the console and seating are moulded as opposed to separate console units screwed and glued to the floor. Obviously this has significant advantages particularly structurally as the mouldings for the rear seat give immense strength to the transom and the steering console is a strong integral part of the boat. The other advantage of this is the rear seat locker offers a huge amount of storage – large enough to keep an auxiliary outboard or watersports gear. The unmarked non slip deck is spacious and it is comfortable to walk around and is particularly safe for children. There is also a fold down swim ladder.
The rib has a large amount of room and storage, including a large locker under the bench seat, storage unit under the helm which is a very good size. There is a very large bow locker. The built in tank holds 50 litres under the steering console which means the storage lockers are free from fuel for personal belongings.
The hull section is fantastically strong with a thick grp double skin and five chamber half meter diameter tubes making this boat a very capable boat for almost any conditions. This is probably the most ideal size of RIB for sport and family fun as it is easily manageable single handed, cheap to run, a fantastic sea boat that gives you a really safe feeling with young family.
