Ribcraft 7.8 with Volvo Penta KAD32 inboard diesel (170hp) and Volvo Penta 290 Duoprop outdrive. MCA coded Cat 4 + Cat 3R (20 miles at day and 10 miles at night) for 8 people.
We currently use this boat as a training boat for our powerboat school on the Isle of Skye. The boat was bought new in 2001 by another powerboat school, and has been regularly serviced since purchase. The trailer was bought in 2005, and the boat was retubed in 2014. I bought it in 2016 and have spent over £10,000 since purchase. In 2017 it had a complete engine overhaul, full hose replacement, head removed, valve sleeves replaced. I also installed new plotter, radar reflector, deck lights, aerial, bilge alarm etc. In 2019 the trailer had both axles and drums replaced, new coupling and full brake system.
This boat has been solid, running without a hiccup for the past 3 years I have owned it. It cruises nicely between 25 and 30 knots and is handy being able to fill up the internal fuel tank from most harbours (so no carrying petrol around). It sits nicely on a mooring or can be put in and out of the water on its twin-axled trailer.
The reason I am selling is that I am often working alone, and so would prefer a smaller boat that can be put in and out of the water by myself. It is advertised in various other places and I am looking for offers around the asking price.
