Ribcraft 585 Restored by www.customrib.co.uk
This was our own boat for this year, we did round Isle of Wight for Macmillan Cancer Support 2016 in her and also crossed the English Channel from Southampton to Alderney for our 12 day summer holiday in August 2016.
She is all serviced and ready to go and the braked roller trailer has just been serviced too.
She's all set up for an iPad chart plotter running the Navionics app (iPad not included) there is wifi transducer included fitted in the bilge well, this was imported from America and talks to the Navionics app which means you can have a 10" chart plotter / fish finder for the fraction of the cost of a dedicated unit. I recommend a lifeproof Nuud waterproof case too keep your iPad safe.
This Ribcraft 585 has two double jockey seats and a rear bench seat so there's loads of seating and storage for family boating.
Internal under deck Stainless Steel fuel tank with console mounted wema fuel gauge.
Other items include a trip switch fusebox, recent battery, top mount controls, bilge pump.
The Mercury 75hp four stoke outboard is extremely fuel efficient and pushes the boat along at 30kts with four people.
The Ribcraft hull has an excellent design which was designed by the person that designed the Avon Seariders, apparently this designer was the first owner of this rib and then she was later owned by the famous sailer Ellen McArther.
The trailer is made by Indespension and tows very well and is easy to launch even singlehandedly.
Overall it's a fantastic package which we really love, however we have bought a newer Ribcraft 585 which has meant that we have to sell this and our other rib which is also advertised on here (please see my other items).
Please feel free to give me a call to discuss any questions that you may have.
