Humber - Assault
Humber Assault RIB 4.5m 50hp Yamaha 2 Stroke
Rare opportunity to buy a RIB with a sea trial first!
Currently on a mooring in Plymouth, I am willing to take any potential buyers out for a trial so you know what you are buying.
Hull is in great condition. Tubes were painted by a previous owner and have cracked and faded in sun but all hold air fine and didn't have to top them up all summer. Deck is tatty but watertight , it was used as a dive boat and dive tanks have chipped away at paint. Dive rack has been removed and holes filled.
The engine is its best selling point. Its a 50hp Yamaha 2 stroke with electric start, purchased this year from Seaworthy Marine in Teignmouth. It was actually used on their boat and so kept in immaculate condition but too powerful for what they wanted and so sold. It was fully serviced when i got it and leak down tested. Even saw it on a dyno. Autolube oil injection has been removed more even more reliability.
It will push the RIB to over 30 knots, got to about 25 in linked video ( knocking noise is camera tapping against light, not the engine :) ).
A frame with nav lights and VHF antenna.
Garmin Sat Nav
Eagle fish finder
new Bruce anchor + chain and rope
external fuel filter
2 fuel tanks
Probably more but can't think off top of my head.
Comes with Snipe trailer. Trailer pivots, It had new bearings and tyres last year. Manual winch is old but works fine, straps might need replacing at some point.
Comes with mooring until August 2016 included in sale if local to area.
As mentioned I can take you out for a trial before you buy so you know exactly what you are buying instead of starting engine on somebodies drive with hose attached if you're lucky. It'll be in water for next couple weeks before I take it out over winter.
Text or email any questions, I work odd hours so can't always answer calls.
Reluctent sale due to reduced work hours and having to buy new car. Toys have got to go unfortunately.
*please note picture of boat on trailer has Mariner engine, this is not the engine for sale but only picture I have of boat out of water.
