Really a 'horses for courses' thing - and what we have created in this version is a sports RIB. The tubes do come into play in terms of handling when pushing hard in turns and of course provide large amounts of buoyancy in rough weather (and we have had plenty of that recently).

The boat is built fairly light - without going to extremes - and as such the performance is very good - which very much goes with the whole lay-out, hull design and tube design.

However we are looking at producing a 'cruising' version from the same hull. This would mean the tube diametre going up by about 50mm and with the tubes mounted slightly further outboard and canted outboard in the main body of the boat. This would also then lead to an increase of approx. 75mm in internal beam and approx. 45mm of internal freeboard. Again back to 'horses for courses'. Performance would drop of a bit but the hull we have created is efficient and the idea is that it does not need massive horsepower to obtain good speeds.

Hi Adam,

That is a great looking sports rib you have produced.

Apologies if I am reopening an old can of worms here, but can you please explain the advantages of the stepped hull? As I understand the principle, the craft will be more efficient when on the plane, but what effect does this design have during high speed cornering?

Cheers.
