This is a quality Kiwi-built Bakewell-White (Atomix) 675 RIB powered by a low hour diesel Volvo Penta sterndrive. This RIB is seriously impressive, it rides incredibly dry and feels solid when cruising around at 30 knots. Its true length is closer to 8.20m! From the water and when on board, it certainly looks like a superyacht tender with its neat, extra diameter stainless brightwork and teak trim to the extended swim platform. This is a perfect day tripper to jet over to Rotto, cruise up the Swan to Elizabeth Quay or simply tow it behind the mothership as a luxury tender! Would be great to store in the boat stackers for quick trips to the Rock!
A little backstory to the brand: These boats are designed by award-winning Kiwi designer Brett Bakewell-White who is well-known in Australia for his involvement in the 1986 America's Cup. The brand unfortunately folded during the GFC and as such there was only a handful of these excellent vessels delivered. A real shame as they would have been hugely popular had they come at another time! He has also designed the NZ Offshore champion powerboat in 2006,07 and 08. As we know, the Kiwis have produced some excellent RIBS like the Rayglass Protector, NAIAD and Smuggler for example. This BW 675 is right up there with them and represents the quality product you would expect. It would suit any buyer looking at Brig, Zodiac, Gemini or Falcon RIBs.
The quiet & economical Volvo Penta D4-300HP is a desirable option and pushes the RIB along at a top speed of 40 knots! She will burn just 26 L/hr @ 2300RPM which results in a comfortable 25 knots. Max fuel burn at WOT (3450RPM) is 55L/hr.
The owner had a brand new Zipwake automatic trim tab system fitted, which greatly improves the handling of the boat. Ask anyone who has installed Zipwakes onto their vessel, they will rave about the benefits!
*By separate negotition* The seller ordered a brand new custom built Duralite dual axle aluminium trailer in Sept 2018, costing over $20,000. Optioned with HydraStar brakes and a BoatCatch locking system for single easy launching and retrieval, you will have no problems launching at any reasonable boat ramp. Trailer included with boat by separate negotiation with vendor.
