This rib has a great layout with seating for two at the bow, seating for two 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.
This is the rare sundeck version and the cushions and table area are immaculate as they have never been used and have been kept in doors. They are in as new condition and make a fantastic sunbed area or table and seating arrangement for four or five to sit.
Bombard SB ribs are built by Zodiac and offer super quality. 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 non slip deck is spacious and it is comfortable to walk around and is particularly safe for children. 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 and also immaculate inside. There is a very large bow locker. The built in tank holds 60 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.

The boat has always been under cover, has very few hours use and has been well cared for and therefore essentially looks like a new rib. The superb Mercury outboard is unmarked and benefits from a recent service and has had very little use, we tested the rib and it performed faultlessly, started literally first flick of the key after standing for weeks and showed startling performance and didn’t miss a beat. The boat has been fully checked over, the Chartplotter works perfectly and shows speed and depth and UK charts the VHF works but the LED screen is blank. The steering is precise and free and it accelerates and goes in and out of gear effortlessly.
The boat is in superb condition with a virtually unmarked polished hull and excellent tubes with just one small professional repair.
It is perfectly set up with a 60 hp EFI ELPT power trim and tilt electric start Mecury 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. Instruments include rev counter and tilt gauge and fuel gauge. This is a pristine engine. It starts first flick of the key, always meticulously washed through with no corrosion
The trailer is a Snipe single axle Dual swing beam fully braked trailer and is in excellent condition with brakes in good order and handbrake that works perfectly.
The roller trailer is very well engineered and makes launching and recovering easy thanks to the swing beam. It comes with a trailer board .
I can almost guarantee you won’t find a Bombard 530SB of this year as immaculate as this boat. The proportions and layout of this rib are just right, it’s an ideal boat for any family and for all watersports.
