Hello there

It was indeed a great day out and ... Manos tks for the nice photos -

Richard b - Scorpions are being built by a local yard under licence by Scorpion uk n Ribco is doing the marketing/sales n after sales service for them - here are placed at the top of the local rib market - I am very pleased...so far.

Limaydal - These fittings are not custom made and are available in retail here

I know what you mean berg and thanks. But these chips appeared when we got back that day. Actually my son noticed them as we were taking videos of the boat underneath with the underwater video.

During the day there are no chips and they appeared after our return. Any way I've jell coated them and is as new. But it shouldn't have happened is bad for the fibre glass to be left exposed in the water like that. OSMOSIS comes to mind.

Poor old Manos.
I think you are destined to go through life, believing that there is no link at all, between paying more money and getting a better quality product in return. (Scorpion v. Falcon)

Have to agree with you here Brian. But is a limit on what one is prepared to pay and 80,000 Euro for an 8 mtr RIB what ever this boat is made of and by whom is TOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO MUCH!!

WAY TOO MUCHCONSIDERING THAT THEESE BOATS ARE BUILT IN GREECE. I mean that they have the same standard costs / meter as any other rib made in Greece

With all due respect I don't agree with you - the principle of 'what you pay is what you get' apply here - would suggest you go n check the boats' building place for Scorpions in Greece and you will observe very high standards (1st class materials/work, controlled enviroment etc etc) plus ask them to show you the studies they did on the boat and you will get impressed both by the volume and the quality of the job done. I don't say they are perfect I am just saying they are reasonably good professionals and the price you pay for their product is what you get with very good after sales service and good resale value. On the price the 8.5 mtrs fully loaded incl trailer twin engine say 2x225 optimax note is abt euros 85k which is more expensive if compared with another similar boat by say abt 20 pct - I tested a number of similar boats this winter at difficult conditions and I strongly believe it was the best of all of them as far as sea-performance is concerned (the rest are personal taste ). I hope my next one to be the 8.5m twin engined.

Enalios,

I do hope that you get what you wish for, but I strongly believe that these prices apply to UK made boats. There is no manufacturer in Greece who doesn't employ Albanians and we all know how much the cost to a company, compared with Greeks, or even worse, with specialized personel. As far as the studies (and by that I mean the constructional studies of the boats), I don't think that Scorpion UK neither lets them do any changes, nor left them "naked" in the market. I mean that the studies were made at the mother factory, not here.
Any way the fact is that Scorpions have (fairly) a very good reputation on the market.

Bat believe me I've been on Enalios' SCORPION and the next boat I'll get (if is not an aly RIB) will deffinately be a SCORPION!! The boat is Great - I didn't think is as good as it is. Nothing cheap on it and everything is srewed and made to withstand the harsh sea environment. ASscond hand like that one costs about 35-45K Euro which is not that much (just the price of 2 1/2 Falcons 640s ) .
