Broker's Comments

*** New trailer included ***

Here's your chance to own this one-off Solent Ribs 550 Solent special!

She's only been floated for testing and has been built by a locally renowned boat builder, who really pushed himself for perfection - and it shows!

With a tube colour that really stands out, she's been fitted with top quality fittings and so could be ready for high speed fun and frolics afloat, with family and/or friends.

If you're after fast fun on the sea, a good tender, or simply transport afloat, then look no further and come and see this lovely rib - yours at the drop of a hat - we may even be able to arrange delivery!

These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
