I'm only one season into having a RIB and am very pleased with my 6.5m Ribeye (Yamaha 150), however I was very taken with the pictures of your boat, it's a really appealing design. I'll PM you.

Very smart Biff.

I wish you luck with the business, I can vouch for the quality of one-off work.

It's a great looking design, I've not seen anything similar.

What's the head room like in the cuddy?

i had to keep the design as low as possible to get the shape right for when you look at it, the cabin should slope forward to look right, having said that i'm a 6 footer and i can sit upright in there with a few inches to spare, but like everything in a small boat, it's all a bit of give and take, the old geezer who i was with said " if it looks right, it is right"
