The Zodiac Pro 550 Open is a great family RIB, with comfortable seating, a wide beam and oversized tubes for stability, deep V hull for seakeeping, and practical features like forward grabrails and lots of storage. 'Ghost Rider' is presented in very good condition having clearly been lightly used and well cared for, with only three owners from new. She is fitted with a Mercury 90hp 4-stroke for a great blend of performance, economy, and low maintenance costs, last serviced approx. 25hrs ago, and comes with a Snipe braked trailer which has been professionally overhauled including new braking system, flush kit, wheels and tyres. A great package that represents excellent value for money in a condition that would put many far younger RIBs to shame, be quick as she won't be here long!
