This rib has a great layout with seating for two at the bow and seating in front of the helm. It also has a large bench seat which makes this rib a very practical boat and can realistically take out two families unlike so many other ribs with jockey seat or a poor seating layout.
The non slip teak deck is spacious and it is comfortable to walk around and is particularly safe for children as the deck is quite deep with high tube protection keeping you dry and safe making it a very good boat for coastal cruising. This is the later model Valiant with a built in tank under the floor, the older ones had a separate tank under the seat which means on this rib you have loads of storage, including a large locker under the bench seat, storage unit under the helm which is a very good size and also immaculate inside. There is a very large bow locker with cushion and a forward anchor locker.
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.

The boat is in very clean condition with no sun damage to the tubes, just a couple of non-visible professionally fitted patches done previously, the interior is unmarked and stainless steel and deck in very good condition. The hull is clean with no damage and the whole package essentially looks superb .
It is perfectly set up with a 75hp power trim and tilt electric start Autolube two stroke outboard that is in very tidy condition. Fill the fuel tank with normal unleaded fuel and it will automatically mix the two stroke oil from the outboard’s internal separate tank. The outboard has plenty of power for this rib and it flies at 30 knots plus. Due to the restrictions in 2020 and ’21 the rib has not been out on the water since 2019 other than for these photos, the boat has not been used and would need a service. It is in excellent cosmetic order, very tidy under the cowl and has just been fitted with new throttle and gear control cables for smooth operation.
The built in fuel tank has been flushed through and new filter fitted as it has not been used and replenished with fresh unleaded fuel.
The 75hp outboard is powerful and practical and ideal for pulling a skier, wakeboarder or inflatables. This is a tidy outboard, with excellent water pump pressure, always meticulously washed through with no corrosion. This outboard will comfortably bring this 5.2M rib onto the plane with two families on board and will easily pull a mono skier.
