SCORPION 8.1 RIB - FULLY REFURBISHED
The 8.1M Scorpion Rib is synonymous with performance and great seakeeping & this is possibly the best example available having been dry stacked / trailered since new. In 2018 it underwent a major re-fit, which included brand new Hypalon tubes, & new seating. In 2013 / 2014 it had a new Honda F250 Outboard giving modern efficiency, low sound levels and impressive performance, new stainless steel, new deck fittings, a complete new wiring system including under console lighting and impressive stereo system. Flex-teak decking was added throughout as well as a bespoke carbon fibre dashboard, full engine instrumentation and much more. Her ongoing maintenance programme has continued year on year, with a recent Raymarine e7 Hybrid touch GPS/plotter and DSC VHF fitted. This is a great family boat for the Solent and typical UK waters, plenty of secure jockey seating for 6 persons, plus a wrap-around aft bench seat and integrated console seat & even comes with its own trailer. It is a real head turner with Sea Keeping ability to match. It is currently lying Southampton.

This Scorpion 8.1m RIB has to be the best example of this extremely capable and sea worthy boat available. Presented in excellent condition and having had 2 major re-fits, including new Hypalon tubes, new upholstery, new Raymarine Plotter & VHF, all fitted in 2018 and then in 2013 / 14 it had a new Honda F250 VTEC outboard that has still done less than 150 hours as well as new Stainless Steel A Frame and Deck Fittings, a Custom Carbon Fibre Dashboard & full Flexi-Teak decking throughout. With its GRP nose cone & solid build quality, this really is the full package. With its quiet, powerful yet very economical Honda Outboard it has the performance and speed that will appeal to the thrill seekers, but also provides a very solid and stable ride that can be enjoyed by families and friends at lower speeds. With 6 stylish Jockey Seats as well as a deep rear bench seat there is plenty of seating for everyone onboard. In addition, in the front of the console is a double “Suicide “ seat for those that want the wind in the hair experience. Further forward is a good sized open deck area with inbuilt lockers as well as a further hatch locker in the bow. The whole deck & bathing platforms are fitted with Flexi-Teak synthetic teak decking in grey with grey caulking, giving it a comfortable feel underfoot & adding to its great looks. This, along with its Dark Grey Tubes & Seating, complimented by its clean white hull mean it is a RIB that will turn heads and be a boat to be proud of.
The Scorpion 8.1m RIB with a beam of 2.17m mean that in our opinion, she is a very capable & very seaworthy boat. This particular boat has been kept in a dry stack & out of the water all its life and with all the re-fits and upgrades looks like an almost new boat in fantastic condition. It also comes with its own twin axel trailer enabling its new Owner to transport it to wherever you want. It is currently lying Southampton.
