Comments from the owner

'Ricochet is a twin engine 7.4m Stormforce RIB which was commissioned in 2006 by the Irish Coast Guards as a relief Search and Rescue (SAR) vessel and as such was kept under cover, very well maintained, with very little used and was re-engined at the start of 2010 as part of their rolling modernisation policy.

I brought her when she was traded into Redbay Boats later that year and then carried out an extensive refit. Ricochet has been meticulously maintained since and has been serviced every year with genuine Yamaha parts, washed down, flushed and fitted with her custom overall cover after every use and therefore must be seen as the pictures do not do full justice to her condition.

In her current configuration she has two Scotseat KPM Marine shock migitation seats – one of which is removable. This leaves a large clear area aft which is ideal in her current expeditionary role but allows scope for remodelling by her next owner such as the addition of 2 maybe 4 additional seats or a large dive rack.

Ricochet is also fitted with a comprehensive electronics package including an excellent integrated Lowrance Chart Plotter/Broadband Radar/Depth sounder system.

Unique to Ricochet is her custom made, fully operational, camping tent which is fully removable and can be erected with ease by one person quicker than a small caravan awning. This allows one person to comfortably sleep on board either at anchorage or in a marina.

As a result of its SAR pedigree, Ricochet is a unique and robust boat with a great build quality and history - including a 750 mile solo trip to the enchanted Isle of St Kilda. Very genuine reason for sale and only serious enquires and offers will be considered.

Ricochet is on her trailer at Redbay Boats, unless in use, so she can be easily seen and sea trialled by arrangement.'
