Big RIB down under

Here are a couple of pictures of a rather nice Naiad RIB that an eagle eyed ribster spotted in Australia. Actually, you wouldn't need to be all that eagle eyed to notice a 14 metre RIB with 900hp on the transom!

Triple HPDI V-Max 300 Yams?? The V-hull have to be very flat if those kind of like short-shaft engines will work in it. Especially when the middle engine is in the same level as lateral ones. I'd suspect poor seekeeping in heavy weather even though large size of course works fine just due its size.

Hi Pitkis
Remember that the V-MAX (250 and 300) should be mounted 5" higher than normal - and still remain ok stability.

OK, thanks for info, new for me. Still, V-hull have to be poor since the middle engine is in the same level as lateral ones.

Ketil, what do you think about this RIB, one engine for every 15 or 10 hours maybe :-) :-)
