Several years ago it wasn’t that uncommon to find a 5 or 6 year old boat, still in the shrink wrapping, having never found a new home after the crash of 2009/2010. This Asis rib however sets the new record for ‘new, old stock’. It was built in 2009 but didn’t actually sell until 2017, believe it or not!
The benefit to you is that this boat now presents in ‘as new’ condition but for around half of what it would cost to buy a new version!
This Asis 5.1m rib and Suzuki 80HP motor were built in 2009, however the package was only commissioned and sold to her one and only owner in January 2017. At that time the owner also purchased a brand new Indespension Roller Coaster trailer. Since then the boat has been very sparingly used (with less than 30 hours on the clock), it has never been kept in the water, and it has been very carefully looked after by her discerning owner.
If you’re not familiar with the Asis brand please check them out online. Built in Dubai, they are known for building high quality ribs with plenty of commercial and military clients. This 5.1m model is still in their current line up and it’s an extremely impressive boat. The hull is rated to carry 6 people plus gear and will actually take up to a 120HP motor – demonstrating just how robust this boat is.
Watch our video tour to find out just how impressive this little rib is.
With the 80HP motor, the performance is effortless, with lots of power for pulling skiers and water toys. But what’s even more impressive for me is that the boat doesn’t feel over-powered even with such a big motor on the back. It hops on plane quickly, it keeps the nose down (even with only a helmsman on board) handles like it’s on rails and with hydraulic steering and super smooth side-mount controls it can be driven enthusiastically with only the lightest effort at the helm.
It feels like a much bigger boat on the water than it’s size would suggest, and that’s exactly what you want from a little sporty family rib.
The excellent build quality extends to lots of impressive design touches, like the under-floor 108L fuel tank, in-floor ski locker and solid helm console. But there’s just too much to list here… You’d be better off watching our video review to get all the details.
