Broker's Comments

An ideally suited all-rounder.

The robust 'expedition' design is ideally suited to commercial and adventurous applications, but is perfectly suited to any user with practicality in-mind.

More than capable of taking on the potentially rough seas of the UK, this Expedition rib is a tough piece of kit and will serve users well, whatever their purpose.

The dual console is the perfect solution to give enhanced foul weather protection and the large dry storage area is extremely practical for any user of the rib.

A super performance rib with tons of space for dry storage. This rib is packed with loads of extras including additional fuel tank to extend the range, GPS/Plotter/Fishfinder and DSC VHF radio.

Well maintained and fitted with the superb Suzuki 140hp with very low hours run, this Ribquest 4.8m represents great value!

In addition, please see owner's comments below;

"Custom built as the first Ribquest Expedition boat in partnership with Suzuki engines for the Round Ireland Powerboat and RIB challenge 2013 - this 15ft boat has the ability to handle rough seas.
The semi-closed foredeck with dual side-by-side console offers better communal integration than inline jockeys, as well as radically uprated weather protection and much improved dry storage capacity. In terms of dynamics, it enjoys the same deep-V hull with high sheer bow that has won Ribquest a powerful reputation for its soft, dry, forgiving ride."
