Described by MBM as "one of the best handling RIBs - or boats, for that matter - that MBM has ever tested". Glowing review indeed for what is a challenging and very competitive market. Built by Bembridge Marine, the Isle of Wight based manufacturer in 2006 as the natural progression to the 7.50 she has been a winner.
With its excellent handling, helm position and the added bonus of a cabin, you can see the appeal. This RIB will corner at breakneck speeds and will bring you back time and time again to experience the rush. Fitted with a Mercury 225hp, Optimax, 2-stroke outboard, she is plenty fast enough with a top speed of 45 knots.
The cabin is small and has no plumbed in heads, but a chemical toilet will solve this. Comes with a Lowrance colour plotter/sounder and DSC VHF.
Vessel is moored on "T-Dock" which keeps the hull clean from fouling. This is available by separate negotiation should it be required.
