New Twin 2.0 Qsd Diesel Rib

Just yesterday I had the oportunity to Test the latest PARKER 750 BALTIC RIB fitted with twin QSD 2.0 150 HP engines and Alpha one drives. The boat was fully fitted out with the latest high tech equipment, ie
an m121 multifunction chartplotter, a depth sounder, nORTHSTAR 2KW Radar and a FLIR thermal vision Camera connected to the M121 VIDEO INPUT. I must say i was amazed at the way the boat performed and the quality of the engines, diesels have definetly developed alot! The 2 qsd 2.0 litres are extremely quiet and give excellent response to the throttle, making the boat do exactly what you want it to do. I got about 37 knots from the R.I.B. however it could do more but because of the application it is not propped for speed but for the load it will have to carry. The Rib will be used by The "CSP" wich is the central training center for the POLISH POLICE FORCE. ANY way here are a few pics:

Nice looking boat; I really like those 750 Baltics.

Is it me though, or does that A frame look bent in the middle?

where do you see that?

Chris forgot to mention that the Alpha drive are counter rotation. A pity the DTS (Digital Throttle and Shift is not yet available for the QSD engines. I am told perhaps mid 2008.

I like the colour . Just like my last demo one and my new one

Mount that A frame a bit more substantially, put a wakeboard towing eye on it, some upholstery on the engine cover, take the rear two pods out and put a bench seat with a reversible back rest (as the Ribcraft one) and it's my PERFECT rib! Great for all the sailing support/commuting/slogging that I do and a superb family/friends/wakeboarding boat as well. How much?

The A Frame is in that particular position because of the radar scanner. Normally when no radar scanner we put a different A Frame on the transom to which we can fit a towing eye
no problem to put a cushion on the engine compartment
no problem to have 2 x 3 man jockey seats
no problem with a bench seat but only facing forward as not much room if you want to face both ways hence reversible back rest
the A frame on the stern will also give somewhere to hold on

Are you in the market for such?

If yes then best send me an email to info@parkerribs.com with full spec , requirements and contact details

then we can talk prices

Nice pictures Chris.

Are they the new design seat backs Andre?

Looks like the grab handles have changed.
