Zodiac 7m RIB, Ex-military RIB-P



1987 Ex-military 7 meter Zodiac rigid hull inflatable. Purchased as surplus from US government in 2012 and fully restored.

This is one of the most capable offshore boats you can find. For decades it was the go-to small rescue and patrol boat for the coast guard and many other marine patrol and rescue organizations. This will get you home no matter the conditions. Purchased and restored so that I had an extra measure of safety and confidence when taking my family out to the islands. Great for diving, spearfishing, fishing or water sports at the lake.
