KR7 to Sweden

After a 2400 km trip the KR7 is in Swedish water (pics later).

Modifications like blueprinted hull and with a hard nose is done this winter.

So far just 2 hours test driving.

She works very well. Best 7 m rib so far for me. And together with the 150 e-rude, it is a perfect combination.

This is my first rib with powerlift and stepped hull, so it will take little time to learn everything but in 40+ knots it goes like a From 45+ i need to practice little...

I'm sure the KR7 will give you many hours of fun and safe boating.

Really good to get her back on the water for the test last week - and it still feels a really good boat. Infact even better with the hull work that has been done and I think the hard bow will have its advantages too.

Really good to meet you and hopefully catch up with you in Sweden one of these days. In meantime will look forward to some photos of the KR7 in the beautiful Swedish Archipelago.

PS - To add to the thread - after the hull modifications were made we took the opportunity to take off a new hull mould and so the KR7 will be going back into production.

The new RIB will be a PPG 7M - and aimed at producing a quick and very economical RIB. Lay-out will be all new with new deck mould, console, suspension seat options - also in hard or soft bow.
