Farewell to "Black Magic"

Following sea trials for representatives from Greenpeace the deal was finalized yesterday when the demo rib was collected from Southampton Dry Stack. The Parker 650 Diesel rib known till yesterday as “Black Magic” has been purchased for the latest Greenpeace vessel “Rainbow Warrior III.

Here is a shot of “Black Magic” and a few taken yesterday during the handover

I must now make a quick decision what demo rib to have next

Robbie, the VW engines are now part of the Cummins package and sadly you cannot have DTS / Smartcraft controls with the VW range

DTS with diesel is the way to go

Black Magic II or Grey Magic

Order one more but with dark grey interior.

It is the perfect rib in this size...

This was a demo rib which they bought not a rib built to order.
