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."
