About this RIB 5.8M RIB by Stimson


Certified by Lloyds Register as a SOLAS/MED compliant Rescue Boat for LY1/LY2, this 5.8m RIB doubles as a crew tender and fast RIB and so, while compliant in every respect, it is also specified as a Superyacht tender.
Given its original role is as a rescue tender, features such as the deep-vee hull form with improved sea keeping characteristics for use in extreme sea states take precedent over the more aesthetic aspects. However, she is in all respects a very usable and fine boat. A Yanmar 4LH 200hp diesel engine and HamJet 213 installation is fitted to provide the power for the boat.
A SOLAS inversion kit is also fitted and as shown in the photographs the testing included 180deg self-righting test as well as swing test, drop tests and swamping/flooding tests – after which the boat demonstrated to function perfectly.

It is our belief that not only would she make a great family boat but would also find favour as a muliti-function support boat in, for example, a sail training club, kayaking club, Yacht Club or any water based activity where a fast and ultra safe RIB might be useful.
Don't forget that
her SOLAS Certification and design coupled with a Water Jet propulsion system enabling her to be used in shallow water as well as at sea, make her an amazing all round proposition.

Where else can you buy the security of an inboard diesel powered RIB that is able to self right for this budget?

This really is something quite special. Designed and built by the renowned yard of Stimson Yachts in New Zealand, she was originally built as a tender for a Superyacht. As the design also incorporates a self righting ability she is also SOLAS compliant as a rescue/safety boat. She even has a stretcher to allow safe transport of a casualty.

Her original design criteria required that she did not have a typical large tube fixed to the topsides as found on most Ribs. Not only does she have a hull made of a fire retardant GRP, she also has three slimline tubes fitted one above the other and all covered to give her a slim appearance and enabling her to take up less deck space on board a larger yacht but also to fit into narrow berths too.

She has a very high quality Stainless Steel arch that folds flat when not needed or, when at sea can be very easily deployed. There is a self righting facility on the top of this arch. There are lifting points hidden away in the deck and these are easily accessed if the boat is to be lifted onto a larger yacht. There are lifting strops and a deck cradle available within the price.

The helm features a Simrad GO9 Plotter, Engine dials and controls, engine kill Cord, Simrad VHF with DSC and AIS facility and a Compass. The helmsman sits astride a jockey style seat while passengers have a choice of two large seats forward of the helm and two others towards the bow. The boat has a stretcher neatly stowed to starboard and if it is ever needed to accommodate a patient, it is designed to fit neatly between the helm and the bow of the boat.

The deck is fully teak laid and in very good condition. There are ample lay flat cleats around the boat plus a shower, bathing ladder and swim platform.

Powered by an inboard Yanmar diesel driving through a Hamilton Water Jet unit she is capable of 26 knots and will operate in shallow water as well as at sea. The benefits of a water jet propulsion system are vary rapid and smooth power delivery, no cavitation of props and no danger of anybody getting limbs caught in a propeller if manoeuvring close to anyone in the water.

The engine has run approximately 500 hours and it has a gearbox that allows the Jet to run in neutral, engage forward thrust or to back flush the jet and go astern.

This package must make her a highly desirable, ultra safe and practical family boat or she would be absolutely perfect in a support role for any water based activity establishment.
