Broker's Comments

The Rib Explorer 450 is surprisingly spacious for a 4.5m rib offering comfortable seating for 5 adults and adequate storage.

This actual Rib was tested early 2016 by Powerboat and Rib Magazine: -

"The 450 is a well priced attractive and entertaining little rib"

"There is a very pleasant balance between grip and slide in evidence here and it enables you to sling this boat about in the most gung -Ho and self indulgent manner"

The outboard has also recently been serviced.
