RIBs on site
A visit to our boatyard, based at Trafalgar Wharf, is a great opportunity to compare a wide range of RIBs, boats and engines in one place, saving you time searching and traveling from yard to yard.
Please contact us to make an appointment to view. We will show you around our boats, giving you our full attention and the benefit of our expertise, for as long as you need it.
Every RIB, boat and engine that comes in is professionally checked over by our engineers. This means that, where appropriate, we are able to give a warranty on the stock we sell.
We are also always happy to consider part-exchanges.
Our RIB heritage
RIBs For Sale (formerly known as JBT Marine) was set up by MD Jonny Boys in the early 1990s, primarily refurbishing and selling second hand RIBs. This included all 40 of the original Camel Trophy 2000 RIBs used for this amazing event. These superb RIBs are guaranteed to impress with their race ready performance, while their size and stability make them an ideal family boat.
Jonny’s ethos from the outset was to ensure RIB owners received the best advice and the best selection of secondhand RIBs to match their requirements. And this is the exact same philosophy we follow today.
Today, our team boasts over 30 years of RIB and powerboat experience, across all brands of RIB.
As the business grew it moved online too. RIBsForSale.com is one the very first, and most successful online RIB sales websites. And our key difference to other boat sales websites, is we also have the RIBs we sell online here in stock.
RIBs For Sale is the main UK and European distributor for the Ballistic RIB, used in the world famous Trans Agulhas Race in the Southern Ocean. Only the most rugged and well specified RIBs can withstand such a challenging environment and grueling schedule.
We are well known for taking advantage of bulk purchase opportunities, for example, over 40 RIBs and associated equipment from the year 2000 Camel Trophy event. These RIBs were built to a very high specification and still come back to us for resale from time to time.
