This Gemini 7.3 Jetrib is a great looking craft, oozing quality and delivering a performance that will get your adrenalin pumping. This is a rare opportunity to buy one in excellent condition with very low hours and a suite of first class electronics. Jetribs are not 'inflatables' they are fibreglass/grp 'V' hulls with foam filled Hypalon pontoons, built to military specifications and 'to survey'.
Ten Jet Rib 7.3's were built for the Royal Australian Navy in 2006/2007 by Gemini who then built a second batch with the expectation that the navy would also acquire them - however that sale did not materialize. These later boats were stored and over time were sold into private hands. This rib was purchased unused by the current owner in 2019 and has only been used as a personal pleasure craft. There is seating for over 10 persons. (AMSA are familiar with these ribs and several are in commercial use. )
The owner recently spent $15,000 on electronics including a Simrad touch screen GPS plotter/sounder and autopilot with joystick control. He also fitted a large stainless steel bimini at a cost of $9,000. The Yanmar 310hp diesel/Doen Waterjet has only done 150 hours from new and just been professionally cleaned and serviced in preparation for sale.
Max speed is an impressive 32 knots, cruising about 25 knots and her 450 ltr fuel capacity gives a theoretical range of 200 nautical miles.
