This is an outstanding example of a Zodiac 420 Pro 7man rib, 40hp outboard, brand new trailer and new all over cover. It is ideal for coastal cruising or bay hopping and watersports with the family and is perfectly balanced with a pristine reliable and economical four stroke 40hp Honda power tilt outboard just serviced by Honda main dealership and service centre Rob Perry Marine (£689). The full service included new Honda control cables, new fuel line and sea trial, it runs perfectly, performs very well and is ready to go.
As the boat has very low hours, it is in excellent condition, absolutely stunning, the hull is polished and like new, the whole package is virtually unmarked and like a new rib, it has been meticulously maintained, has always been kept under cover and has had no expense spared.
The Rib was purchased from Zodiac dealers Pennine Marine, the new rrp price for this rib with this set up and these extras is over £20,000 and this one is like new. If you are thinking of buying a new rib you should really consider this boat as it genuinely looks as good as it does in the pictures- unmarked.
These extremely versatile Zodiac Pros are also the number one choice for sailing clubs as safety boats and rescue ribs, they are also very popular as work boats, dive boats and fishing boats.
It comes with a brand new super quality 500 roller trailer (£1200 new) which was built Dec 2021 complete with 24 months warranty from collection, brand new lighting board and brand new all over cover with tie down straps.

This rib is in remarkable condition, absolutely immaculate with no patches or repairs. it feels more stable and handles better than many larger boats and that’s down to its superior hull design and large tubes which ensure that you stay safe and dry, it’s also why they are extremely popular family boats and safety ribs and they out perform many other boats in their class. It has a great layout with seating for two at the bow on a large bow cushion, seating for two behind the helm and great storage in the large bow locker, helm locker and bench seat.
It’s fitted with a performance stainless steel prop to aid acceleration and pull skiers up quickly. The Honda service centre clocked 30 knots during its sea trial.
Another advantage of Zodiac Pro ribs is that they have removable tubes which means there are never any bonding issues to the hull and if you ever need a repair it’s easier to manage, or replacement tubes if ever required can be purchased off the shelf. It also makes the rib very practical for storage as it will pack down from 4.2M X 1.9M to approximately 3.65M x 1.25M.
The non slip deck is spacious and it is comfortable to walk around and is particularly safe for children. The hull section is fantastically strong with a thick grp double skin and three chamber half meter diameter tubes making this boat a very capable boat for almost any conditions. This is an ideal size 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.
