This 2017 Ribeye A550 looks stunning & is presented in fantastic condition having only had very light use. It comes with a great spec which includes unique, bespoke purple upholstery, synthetic teak decking & low level blue courtesy lights. This is a boat that feels much bigger than her actual size. Fitted with a Yamaha 115 hp Four stroke outboard as well as 4 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 room for upto 9 adults. 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 exhilarating ride that is a joy to drive, fun to own & is ideal for water sports or blasts across the sea. With the Black & Grey Hypalon Tubes, pale Grey Hull / console & contrasting Purple Upholstery, this is a RIB that will really turn heads. It comes complete with Chart Plotter, VHF & Fusion Stereo & is currently lying Southampton. It is a must to view.

Brokers Comments

WOW, what a boat. This Ribeye A550 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. This particular A550 is in fantastic, almost as new condition & really stands out from the crowd with its stunning Purple Upholstery that works so well with the Grey Hull / Console & Black & Grey Tubes. With a tremendous Shear in the Bow & a deep V hull that runs right to the transom it offers an unbelievable ride, whilst keeping it passengers dry. She has only seen light use & has been stored in dry stack since new, so her hull and engine are spotless & her upholstery & tubes are virtually as new . She also comes with a great specification including a Garmin colour plotter, DSC VHF, Fusion Stereo system and digital Engine Instruments. It also has synthetic Teak Decking and Blue Low Level Courtesy Lights. Amazingly, this beautiful boat has seating for 9 adults with four 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 F115 four stroke outboard engine that is great for water sports & having fun & still has the balance of its 5 year warranty left to run


The Ribeye A550 is a well proven RIB, that has a class leading amount of space and accommodation & will cope admirably in turbulent waters. This particular boat is probably the most striking & distinctive RIB of its size we have ever seen & is a boat that will certainly turn heads and offers a substantial saving over a new version. You won’t want to miss this one which is currently lying in Southampton.
