The boat has had only light use. Being also light in weight, it was easy to manually hoist it on the davits without the need for a winch. The console is from Highfield and is also lightweight aluminium. It has a large lockable compartment under the seat, perfect for lifejackets etc. No trailer. Can be viewed and run.
This RIB is currently on the cruiser it belongs to in Port Solent Marina. Please check with us about the availability to view it. Viewings should be possible most days of the week.
