Parker Military Ribs

We do not promote this range on an open forum and nor in our catalogues but since this clip was shown on the national TV in Poland I guess no harm to post a link here. Enjoy it.

The clip shows the Polish SF during an exercise off the Baltic coast. Not all the ribs are of our production but the majority are like the diesel jets and a couple with twin outboards

As whisper says, thanks for sharing Andre! What are the specs for the diesel jets? What engine /HP, Jet, dims, performance etc? No reason other than intrigue....I'm pretty into this military Jet business at the moment

Great boats - I am sure the marines look slightly put out when a certain big black parker goes past them down this way ...just need to take the flags off really !

They look like 11m and maybe its just the way they are driving them but they look slightly underpowered. The USMI's use twin 420hp Cummins.

They are the Parker 1000 Baltic the same hull as Seasafari in Poole and Solent Voyager in Cowes. These ribs have the twin Cummins 4.2 engines as the beam is only 3.16 mtr so max for that size rib.
