New Ribtec @ the Boatshow

Popped in to see the boat show today. Mainly the same as other years, a little quiet and the stands we spoke to said its been slow ... however Sunseeker have sold at least 20 boats and one person said 30!!

We did see this .... its on the same hull (although shortened) as Alan P's cross Atlantic boat, and I think Alan has been in this boat from what the guy said. Not sure I like it, however the hull has a proven track record in some tuff conditions.

It was powered by 2 x 275 Verados

Looks very fancy but where are the jockeys?

Great to have a loo on board but it would have been nice if they'd put a partition or something next to it so you don't sit there looking at it!

The cabin looks quite roomy though. Is an adult able to stand up in there? (Not a 10 foot tall thing like JK necessarily though!)
