Glad you like our new rib. This rib is actually 7.8 mtr and is based on the same Baltic hull as the cabin rib which you saw in Denmark.
You can see from the photos that there is a lot of steelwork (stainless of course) and all this with the hull weight makes the rib quite heavy and solid.
The twin mercruisers 1.7 L at WOT deliver a speed of 36 knotswhich is waht our client was expecting. This is a working rib not a racing rib .
The rear A frame houses the air intake for the engines . The air is drawn in from the underside of the upper section of the A frame. In case of any spray there is a water trap provided just prior to air being fed into the engine compartment. As for fuel consumption well watch this space as I would rather refer to our clients own experience once he has had the rib long enough. I did not have a chance to enjoy a ride but Paul Lemmer took it for a test drive yesterday from Southampton to Littlehampton . Round Selsy it was quite choppy but the rib as I have been told performed very well and no sprays on the deck a very much dry rib
