Cougar R10 Cabin Rib

At long last some pictures of the new R10 Cabin Rib were mailed to me.
Looks nice eh?
What do you think compared to other cabin ribs?
I might be tempted a couple of years down the line..

It looks quite nice actually, but I couldn't live with the abundance of white on that particular one.

The open bow is one of the fetures I really like about the Protector, so this one ticks the same boxes for me.

Totally agree - and being a Cougar it's probably got a pretty good hull.......

For me that poncy looking thing goes against everything that a rib should be. Buy a cruiser hardboat if you need/want all that stuff. A cruiser will be better equiped and more comfortable for less money. Only my opinion of course.

I agree...but
Its a rib and will handle rough conditions at high speed. This one topped out at 75mph which is pretty incredible. As for styling hard boats dont do it for me. It would be interesting to put a hard boat against a rib of similar size and power.

Ah, but can you wait until I've got some tinnies and a big tub of Popcorn ready. Wouldn't want to miss anything.

I think it looks better than a hard boat, but agree the hard boat would probably be cheaper and better equiped.
