About this Tornado 5.8 RIB


The Tornado 5.8m Rib is one of the most popular boats in use by sailboat coaches, The 5.8 is also well suited for rescue, diving or police work and is an extremely capable model for the private user. The hull is designed with a very narrow V-shape and high lifted bow, which helps to secure remarkable sea keeping properties for a boat of its size. The Tornado 5.8 Rib is very agile and can turn in a tight radius. This Rib is in very good condition for its age and has been re-tubed in recent years . With twin Jockey & rear bench as well as an A Frame & helm console this is a package that offers very cheap Ribbing for her new Owner. It comes with a full, all over cover, VHF, Chart Plotter as well as its own single axle trailer. She is currently lying in Southampton.

This Tornado 5.8 RIB is in excellent condition for its age and is still a smart and very presentable boat. It has been re-tubed in recent years and its hull has never been anti-fouled and still shines in bright orange. This RIB has a lot to offer with Jockey Seating for two and a bench seat, good size deck areas and of course the benefit of two engines, should you wish to travel further afield and have the peace of mind of a back up.

This boat is being sold as a fantastic bargain for someone who wants a cheap, good size Rib with twin Engines that have just been serviced. It even comes with its own single axel trailer that appears to be in good condition.

Tornado Boats were started in1975 by David Haygreen. One of the early pioneers in the development of the RIB, David, an ex professional diver and aircraft engineer wanted a boat for his Marine Survey company and with nothing commercially suitable, decided to build his own. The Tornado 5.8 is true to the original concept and offers a robust and rugged RIB suitable for so many uses. She is currently lying in Southampton & is available for viewings through Aspire Boat Sales Ltd.
