Bit smaller than that... six or seven meter hull I think, with twin water jets.

Is that not the Customs () cutter that featured on the TV a while ago. There were some very impressive shots of the RIB being launched whilst travelling at 30+ knots.

Dunno, however a couple of years ago one of the monthly glossies (mebbe RIB International) featured a fisheries patrol vessel which launches and recovers in a similar way (ie under way at speed!).

The Irish customs have one as well. Inboard diesel from a opel car they tell me. Still if they can catch the odd drug or gun runner then I'm happy.
