375 Winboat / F-rib Rib Centre Console boat - 20hp Tohatsu Outboard motor for sale
******I AM OPEN TO SPLITTING THE PACKAGE UP PLEASE GET IN CONTACT FOR INDIVIDUAL PRICES. ***** Up for sale is one of kind folder-able rib. This 2016 Winboat F-Rib 375 is not only highly capable and fun seaworthy rib. What makes this setup special is the flat floor coupled with custom seat console. have not seen another setup like this before. The seat console provides ample under seat storage which is great for the battery, fuel tank, life jackets etc.
If you don't know about the F-rib Winboats just google it. The short version they are built for the Russian Army, handle like rib, fold away and are epic! :)
The 375 twin skin flat floor model is not made anymore, due to costing too much to manufacture. Apart from allowing the console to be fitted, the flat floor adds extra safety/buoyancy. The condition of the boat is excellent with minor usage marks. Any small chips or light marks from usage on the hull have been touched up with white gel coat. The tubes are in excellent condition and hold air as they should. The boat and motor have been treated with the utmost care and when either in storage or putting away. We use yoga mats to prevent any hull scratches/damage when collapsing and inflating. It has been used over summer holidays and stored away protected from the elements over winter.
The transom has been fitted with an anti vibration motor pad, towing eyes (for toys/skis etc) and removal transom dolly wheels for manoeuvring up down beaches and slipways etc. if not using the included trailer.
Powering the F-rib is 2016 Tohatsu 20hp stroke outboard motor. This is the top spec option with power trim and electric start. The outboard is in excellent condition with only minimal hours and fastidiously maintained. Starts on the button, runs beautifully, whisper quiet at low speed and lovely torquey power delivery. Power trim is fast and powerful and is must, in my eyes. Tohatsu are well known for being powerful light packages and this is no exception. All in it weighs 65.5kg and can be manoeuvred single handedly. The motor can also be transported lay down on one side which is clearly marked). This motor with this spec would cost over £3k today alone.
The 20hp will get on plane and push the rib along nicely with adults and small children. Here is vid of the boat running with the 20hp motor one person up on the med: https://youtu.be/cuUIlyPFwL4 . The whole boat setup collapses down to fit neatly in the garden shed garage attic. The boat weighs approx 70kg, the custom seat console weights approx 25kg so is easily movable with trolley. The console attached to the transom via a strong metal bracket and to floor with an adapted bolt that secures the sections of the hull together. Not only does the boat completely disassemble but the trailer does also. We store the trailer sections on the ceiling of our garage. have just fitted all new marine grade stainless steel nuts and bolts for the trailer alongside, new wheel bearings (fitted with marine specific grease) and brand new spare wheel.
