Help Identify this RIB

Interesting RIB in the foreground of this
Costa Concordia refloat picture. Seems
to be Italian coast guard or police related.
Can anyone help identify the RIB manufacturer?

My guess is that it is one of Fabio Buzzi's.

Fabio Buzzi - FB DESIGN srl

Thanks Brian...

It doesn't appear to be one of the Standard
Patrol Boat offerings, but I think you're
right in guessing it's an FB Design

Casate Online - Valmadrera: alla FB Design il 18 la consegna di 8 vedette della Gfd per la sicurezza sui laghi

Good free global publicity though !

It looks like that Kiwi boat. Forgot the brand. There is one for sale on yachtworld. The price has shot up a lot in the last ten years.

My first thought was Protector, but it's just a guess.
