All trailerable boats work on a "back to base" warranty - this means you have to return your RIB to where you purchased it to access your warranty; this is onerous and expensive for you on both time and money.
When purchasing this Grand S520 RIB from Marine Matters it comes with our unique Solent Collect Warranty® plan. This means that any issues, no matter how small, we will attend and solve the problem, if this can't be done at your location we will take your Grand S520 RIB to our workshop, repair it and return it all free of charge. We do the running and jobs while you simply enjoy your Grand S520 RIB without any of the hassle.
This is only available on Grand RIBs purchased from Marine Matters and still within the warranty period.
This is not just for new boats but also includes used boats still within the warranty period.
Any Grand RIB, within the warranty period, kept on the mainland from Lymington to Chichester and if kept at home any location within 10 miles of the coast qualifies for Solent Collect Warranty®.
Any Grand RIB kept on the Isle of Wight qualifies for collection from the north side of the island only. All collection from the IOW will be by sea only (i.e. not on a trailer on the ferry). Collection will include towing the boat across The Solent if the fault means your Grand RIB is undriveable under its own power.
5 years on the hull (applies to the single moulding only not anything fitted to the moulding).
5 years on the tubes.
5 years on the Suzuki Four stroke outboard engine.
1 year on all other fixtures and fitting unless the manufacturer quotes more.
In Stock and Ready Immediately.

The GRAND Silver Line S520 RIB powered by a Suzuki DF100BTL to give it huge pick up and top end speeds is an excellent first RIB for Solent use. Admittedly we have pushed the price a little with the maximum sized engine but the performance this gives this small RIB is incredible. The instant power allows for the driver to power up and over waves to keep the passenger safe and comfortable.
All the seat are covered silvertex cushions which have a water resistant membrane to prevent ingress to the cushion interior. This means that when your kids jump all over the seats after a swim you can hose them down afterwards and in a few minutes everything is dry and ready to go again - no hassle.
The Garmin EchoMAP plus 65cv GPS Plotter & Sonar allows for effortless navigation and accurate spped and depth information to ensure that you can confidently know you are safe at a glance taking away any of the worry from your boating fun. We also fit the Garmin GT8HW-IH sonar transducer because it is bonded inside the hull for best performance and protection from damage, unlike the transom mounted option.
The Garmin 115i DSC VHF radio has also been included to ensure that you have maximum safety (DSC VHF has a "red button" which communicates your position direct to the coastguard if you need assistance.
Our final effort in making GRAND S520 the must have boat is to upgrade the tube from Heytex to Fabric Impression Hypalon which gives a decadent finsh and feel but with the increased strength that only hypalon can provide.
As well as all these "functional features" she is a good looking RIB with real head turning appeal.
Admittedly we have pushed up the price of this RIB with the Suzuki DF100BTL outboard engine, EchoMAP plus 65cv plotter, and 115i DSC VHF radio and the Fabric Impression Hypalon tube but these additions make the GRAND S520 a really capable RIB, essentially giving the safety and fun of a much bigger RIB. These additions also mean that you have what you need onboard without additional spend and crucially when it comes to selling again in the future your RIB will sell well because of the upgraded spec. When we costed this RIB the price for build came in over 28K but we reduced the price to a more manageable figure to ensure that you will have nothing but happiness with you new RIB.
Call us for a sea trial so you can come and see for yourself how she looks and rides - she really will be different to other RIBs in her class.
This GRAND S520 RIB comes with Marine Matters unique offering of Solent Collect Warranty®. All
