SN 1294 Naiad 8.5 Centre Console *PRESENT OFFERS*

*PRICE REDUCED* Don't wait 18 months for a new build, this NAIAD is ready to go immediately. This is a Kirby Marine custom made NAIAD 8.5 centre console, designed and constructed to suit the owner's extremely high standards and requirement for a soft riding and highly capable offshore vessel. Launched in 2016, the RIB has been predominately used for fishing and leisure in the south-west region of WA. It still looks like new after being stored inside from day one.

Kirby Marine's brief was simple, however an incredible amount of effort and skill was required to pull off the finished product: To build a rugged, beach launchable tender to suit a bloke 2.18m in height. The result is the most incredible 8.5m centre console RIB on the market today, with a colour scheme that sets it apart from the usual offering coming from the Henderson-based manufacturer.

The usual fixture of side by side Ullman Dynamics suspension jockey seats ($10k each) provide the skipper and co-pilot a soft ride in all sea states. A Yamaha 350HP V8 outboard ensures the RIB gets up and going to a top speed over 45 knots with economical and comfortable cruising at 30 knots. Trim tabs keep her perfectly level at speed. Dual Simrad NSS EVO screens give the skipper a clear view of the chart plotter and sounder, with a large transom mounted 1kw Airmar transducer.

The heavy duty MCB dual axle trailer was purpose built to be able to beach launch the boat in rough conditions, with a quick release system and skids instead of rollers. The Aggregate Trailer Mass is 3500kg.

o Current replacement cost at Kirby Marine is over $300k with an 18 month wait
