but consumption ..............
In Greece a company called Xtreme Marine makes a 33ft open and closed RIB with stepped hull. The closed RIB looks aufull like a house on tubes but the open is quite nice!!
Had a look at the open in the previous RIB X in Athens and I was quite impressed the hull had nice lines and it seemd like it was well made. I'm going there tonight for a 2nd inspection
Most lilkely they will have one there and will take some photos.
Is a very nice boat and apparently it cruises at 25 knots with top speed at 38knots with an Envinrude 150 4stroke
it takes up to 300bhp twins and with that configuration its top speed is at 65-70 knots according to the builders!!
The price of the open is at 40,000 Euro with everything on it inc 150Evinrude 4-stroke, VHF, GPS, wash basin, shower, 400 ltr fuel tank, 200 water, cooker trailer, boat cover!! etc
I will ask for a test drive see how it handles, but a friend of mine who has been on it he says that is quite good. Will see.
Seems that this is my next project!
