Surprisingly this 4.3M rib (120kg) complete with engine (105kg), seating, tank and battery weighs under 250kg (exc trailer). This makes this boat very practical for yachts with davits or passerelle with a weight limit that normally restricts a davit slung tender to 3.5M. With this boat you can have a lightweight large tender with good performance. This rib is capable of 30 knots plus and will easily pull a mono skier thanks to its power to weight ratio. These ribs are also very popular on luxury motor boats due to their weight to crane onto the deck and smart colour scheme which will compliment any yacht. The rib has three lifting points for davits or crane/passerelle sling. Its low profile makes it a practical option for the transom garage of larger motor yachts.
This rib has a good amount of internal space and storage, a really great family rib. It’s rated for a maximum payload of 720kg making it a wonderful sports rib for diving or skiing or great for bay hopping with a family or two with all the gear. The acceleration and power of this rib is quite startling, it leaps out of the water thanks to the top spec outboard rated for this boat and the new prop. It’s great fun and being a four stroke EFI uses very little fuel compared to a carburettor model or a two stroke.
Ribeye ribs are very highly regarded, these boats were designed to be tough and withstand rigorous safety tests. The boat is beautifully made, strong with a thick Aluminium floor with buoyancy and four chamber half meter diameter tubes making this boat unsinkable and 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 and will fit into most garages reducing storage costs.
It is quite likely that you won’t need the trailer if the boat is going on a mooring or straight onto a yacht, we can deliver and launch the boat for you if this is of interest, please get in touch with your requirements.
Please contact Stratford boats & Outboards Ltd if you would like to arrange a viewing, have a part exchange or need any further information. Please see details about viewing, storing the boat for you prior to collection or delivery at the end of this advert.
Have a look at the videos on the Ribeye website, they’re impressive and give a good idea of the brand quality and following that these popular ribs command. Ribeye are probably the most prestigious brand in the UK and renowned across the world this is good news if you ever want to sell or upgrade your rib in the future as the used market for these boats is very strong.
From the Ribeye website:
As well as being ultra lightweight, their build makes them incredibly strong and they have been purpose built for use with davits, passerelles and cranes on a larger vessel. Like all Ribeye craft their build quality is excellent, with well-constructed two-tone, multi-chamber Hypertex buoyancy tubes and heavy-duty rubbing-strakes for alongside berthing. These ultra lightweight Ribeye Tenders are ideally suited for beaching roles, typical for long-term tender use. These boats are much more likely to be dragged onto beaches or slipways where gravel, shingle and hard surfaces can be less than friendly to GRP hulls, which can be prone to deep scratching and the wear and tear of frequent abrasion. Aluminium hulls will take the punishment year after year.
