Andre, a very nice boat! - she looks pretty stable and able to keep in a plane on the medium speed turning! Did you test her already in choppy waters ? (keen to hear if she behaved well)

the films are from the very first water tests on the river Wisla in Warsaw. that is our Chris at the helm doing what he likes best. We are very confident that the rib will be fine in a chopping sea as well but at the moment the inland waters are the test ground as for that purpose we commissioned Adam Younger to design the hull and as you can see what a fine job he did indeed.
The waters on the river Wisla are very shallow and especially by the banks and Chris was coming along very close.

Really good to see Andre, and many thanks for the comments.

Very satisfying to see her perform and handle in line with my plans and predictions. Will be interesting to see rougher water capabilities in time too.

All very impressive - and really comes across that it is a real quality build and fit-out - all credit to Parkers.

My plan is to bring a Parker 680 Jet open or cabin to Seawork 2014 so it will be a good opportunity to show the rib and to sea trial her.

Sold

The negotiations started in December and in early January a demo was arranged on the lake near Warszawa. Just as well that it was still very mild weather.

Yesterday the Parker 680 Jet was loaded into a 40' container for onward sea freight to Australia. where a super yacht will be waiting to take her on board.

Good question but don't know the answer. The next Parker 680 Jet will be built with a cabin
