RIBs For Sale are delighted to present this 2012 Ribcraft 7.8m Pro to the market. She has only just arrived here at Trafalgar Wharf on her twin axle roller trailer and has recently been checked over and valeted. Renowned for their robust build quality and surefooted ride / handling the Ribcraft Pro series have established themselves firmly in the commercial world. This boat started life here on the south coast before journeying north where her current owner has enjoyed years of family fun in what can only be described as one of the most challenging marine environments the country has to offer! The powerful Suzuki 300hp engine has covered 540 hours and benefits from “drive-by-wire” digital throttles, digital diagnostic / information gauges and has recently been fully checked over, the gear oil was changed during this time.
The layout comprises, seating for 10 behind the console, a mixture of single and double length jockeys with stainless steel hand holds, flip top seats with dry storage under, behind the seats there is an integrated, sunken, liferaft well with securing straps, behind that are the two separate deck drain wells each with its own bilge pump. In front of the console there is a two-person seat with integrated back rest on the console, ahead of that there is an underdeck locker with twist catch hatch, below the step onto the raised bow section where the anchor locker is found. At the transom the double stainless-steel a-frame houses the GPS antenna and 2 x whippy ariels along with the navigation lights. There are also two clip on fishing rod holders!
In terms of instrumentation, the inventory on the console comprises, Compass, Advansea gps, I-com VHF, 2 x Suzuki engine gauges, Fusion stereo entertainment system with two large speakers on the rear face of the console, push button stop / start, and for safety there is a fuel vapour detector. The lights and bilge pump switches are also mounted on the console. To access the electronics, batteries and the isolator switches there is a large hatch on the rear face of the console.
The Suzuki 300hp V6 has been serviced during its lifetime annually and runs extremely well, with only circa 540 hours run so far, it’s barely run in!
