It does look a bit optical illusion ish but it will take three full size people comfortably while under way.

The seat itself only comes to the hight of the tubes ( about 2.5 ft ) but it is very comfortable and usable.

Didn't take the bog option, Jim from Bembridge advised that it takes up a lot of space, decided to buy a bucket instead ( ! ) and use the space for all my gear which stays on the rib all the time.

The rib is berthed in Deganwy Marina. If you are ever in Conwy Bay or round that area let me know. Any excuse to get out on the water.

The first photo in the thread shows the inside.

There is not much more to show. The cuddy is lined and would be ok to sleep in as long as you're not too tall, it comes with cushions.

I only use the cuddy to store gear in. It would be ok to sit out bad weather.

This was all I wanted the cuddy for as I was never going to stop overnight in it. If I was going to do that I would sleep on the deck.

I think the hull is very stable at speed and the fact that it is 28 ft long means that it's able to skip over most waves.

My previous rib was a 15 ft BWM which was an entirely different beast, like comparing a dune buggy to a Range Rover. So from that point of view I don't have much experience.

All I can tell you is that I am very happy with the hull and if anything happened to my rib I would buy the same again.

The decks

I love the look of your teak decks

Is it real teak?? or Tek-Dek, we supply Bembridge and have fitted quite a few this year.
