A very nice example of the Scorpion 9.75 RIB, with twin Evinrude E-Tec engines kicking out a whopping 300hp apiece.
This is an extremely well looked after scorpion that is just perfect for enjoying with family and friends, that packs a punch with a max speed of 60kts - you could be in Yarmouth having lunch and a glass of rosé in sub 5 minutes from the lip of Lymington river. CONTANGO is currently in her second ownership and has had no expense spared when it comes to upkeep. She is well specified with flexi teak deck laid throughout and her huge stowage lockers giving you more than enough room for the likes of skies, wake boards and many other toys.
This layout offers 2 x mushroom seats behind the helm, and a further jockey seats towards the rear for four more passengers, plus a large bench seat before the transom.
There is also a forward bench seat and a forward sunbathing/deck area. She represents excellent value when you consider the engines and the timeless deep-v hull from Scorpion. The tubes are still in incredible condition, only having a rubbing strip replaced since new. The radar arch was replaced in 2020 with a new solid stainless steel piece with a towing eye, making her an immense machine when it comes to towing.
Scorpion RIBs are the ultimate, elegant day boat with a strong racing heritage. Scorpion RIBs was set up with a mission to build the world’s best RIB. Hand built and based in Lymington UK since 1996, Scorpion RIBs can often be found working as chase boats for some of the World’s top sailing teams. CONTANGO is not to be missed.
