Protector RIB 8.5 Targa powered by twin Yamaha 200hp outboard engines. This Protector RIB started life as a chase boat for Team Oracle USA, in 2010 she was purchased privately and moved to the UK. Since arriving in the UK she has been used for commuting to the Isle of Wight, days out in the Solent and Cowes week. Protector RIBS are extremely capable and this one is no exception, this Protector RIB offers great value for money and has benefitted from a lot of upgrades including new Yamaha engines in 2015, and full overhaul of the electrics in December 2022.
