My new Shearwater

After being swamped with requests for pictures of my new rib ( well ok there was just the one!! ) here are a few pictures that I have finally got off the camera and transferred onto my computer.

The rib was delivered in February ( I know it's now August but it's the computer not the operator that's slow! ) and lifted into the marina where it will be berthed.

I would have to say that I am delighted with the RIB. Loads of space on board and plenty of room for storage.

Sorry I haven't got any running shots I will get them soon.

Any comments, questions or criticisms would be gratefully received. Although not to many criticisms as I've now paid for it!!

They are great.

Can't praise Jim and Tom enough for being helpful and efficent.

Even though I keep my RIB 300 miles from them there was no probs in coming up to North Wales to fix a small leak into the cuddy ( well it was a big leak but they fixed it!! )

Agreed, a nice company to deal with and service is good. I like the look of that boat very much, firmly on the list!

I love the look of the Shearwater - a Ring hull and a console with a bog AND it is still a proper RIB!!!

It was not long before I remembered the doyen and father figure of the racing hull. Mike Ring and, of course - his spray rails meet at the stem. Was this a cheap imitation of a Ring hull? Well in fact far from it - it's the real thing! Bembridge Outboards, seeing a chink in the market for a RIB that looks like a proper RIB, has a well proven hull and offers a cuddy for the odd overnight stay or a glory hole for your kids or all that old ribbing gubbins, have bitten the bullet. After two years of development, they have come up with their Shearwater Range which is a development of the tried and tested Ring 750 and 860 hulls but with a very discreet and rather clever cuddy."
