EX Fire and Rescue Ribcraft 4.2m

Post by MarkWas » 06 Jul 2018, 10:53

Don't ask how, but I am the owner of an ex-Bedford & Luton Fire and Rescue boat. Its a 1998 4.2m Ribcraft with same aged Mariner 50hp ob with 2800 hours on the clock. Unfortunately I'm not much of a mariner and this needs a new home now that my brother is unable to enjoy it. Very good condition given its age - the RIB that is, definitely not my brother! I have little idea of its value or how to go about getting it sold. The kind gentleman at Ribs For Sale suggested this forum might help.

Hi Mark, I appear to have completely missed this for sale post, or forgotten to reply .. :thud :shame :no
I'll link it to our social media sites and pass it on to friendly groups too if it's still for sale.???

Some of the chaps on here might be able to give you an idea of price if you havn't sold it yet, personally i've no idea what the old rescue boats go for but as it's a Ribcraft i'd expect it to be ather popular with some.

Martin :cheers

Hi Martin, sorry for late reply. The RIB is still up for sale. I am still not sure of an appropriate price, but I have posted it on sale sites at £5,500. Any help it passing on the word would be much appreciated. I have more photos and a YouTube link.
