General Description

This 2012 Ribeye A500 is presented in excellent condition having only had light usage and comes with a great spec and is a boat that feels much bigger than her actual size. Fitted with a Yamaha 80 hp Four stroke outboard as well as 2 Jockey seats, 3 seater bench seat, bow seat and even the exciting “Suicide Seat” she has an amazing amount of space for a RIB of her size. With a very generous beam of 2.28m, there is loads of room to move around even with a full crew. Built in the UK by one of the most respected RIB manufacturers, this RIB would make a great family boat that is still capable of providing an exhillerating ride that is a joy to drive and fun to own & is ideal for watersports or blasts across the sea. She also comes complete with Garmin Chart Plotter & VHF meaning she is equipped to go to sea. This Ribeye A500 has lots of stowage space and with her pale grey tubes & complimentary grey & blue upholstery, all presented in almost as new condition, this is a boat that must be viewed. It has a very clean hull having been kept in a Dry Stack. It is currently lying Southampton.

Brokers Comments

The Ribeye A500 is a fast, high performance Rib that is built to appeal to both adrenaline seekers & families alike & offers a class leading amount of space and seating for a RIB of its size. It is in excellent condition having been very well maintained by her Owners. Its deep V hull is originally derived from racing RIB’s and subsequently offers a fast, safe & comfortable ride, whilst keeping it passengers dry. She has only seen light use & has been stored in dry stack, so her hull and engine are spotless & her upholstery & tubes are virtually as new . She also comes with a good specification including a Garmin colour plotter, DSC VHF and even digital Engine Instruments. This beautiful boat has seating for 7 adults with two jockey seats, a rear sculpted bench seat, a forward console “Suicide” seat and a bow seat, so plenty of room for all your family & friends. Other desirable features include an all over Ribeye cover to protect her from the elements and of course a powerful Yamaha F80 four stroke outboard engine that is great for water sports & having fun.

The Ribeye A500 is a well proven RIB, that is capable of approx. 32 knts, has a class leading amount of space and accommodation & will cope admirably in turbulent waters. This particular boat is a ready to go package in excellent condition that offers superb value with a substantial saving over a new version. She is currently lying in Southampton.
