In the Suzuki "Virtual Harbour" (ie swimming pool) it's mostly RIBs.

A Redbay 650 with a conventional layout, and a Redbay 750 featuring their unique wrap round "nearly a cabin" console.

Smart looking new Ribquest, quite a contrast to the boats built by the previous Ribquest company!

Little and large: The Capelli Tempest 750, next to the Solent 460.

Familiar faces on the miraculously revived Cobra RIBs stand.

Shiny consoles and sharp suits on the RibX eXige stand.

Smart little jet tenders from Williams as usual, and new kid on the block Arimar. Their 2.8 jet RIB has 146hp and reportedly does over 50mph if you're brave enough . . .

The Goldfish "race replica" boat; Barnet Marine's stand looking exactly the same as it has done for more than a decade (possibly nearer two); and a boat that looks like it ought to be a RIB but isn't - the Paragon 25 doesn't have tubes, but does have a foam filled collar.

Wow. Love that Sr4-where on earth did they find a 1973 Blue Band in that condition?!

<edit> It's really sad that I can tell the age of that from the colour scheme isn't it...

It's had two owners and is still in regular use around Southampton apparently!

Yes. And it's even sadder that you feel the need to demonstrate that knowledge!
