Rib unlimited 36 charter

Last week we were in Goteborg to test the Rib unlimited 36 charter togheter with fjordrafting.As you could see it's very big boat and fitted with twin Yanmar 315 it's supposed to go 57-58 knots with 3-4 person onboard.

The boat has a modern hull with stepp.

Nice piccies. And what a big hatch you have!!

What is your area of operation and how long do your trips last? Is it just blasting around or do you visit places or do wildlife watching type stuff?

R.U. 36 Charter

Under the hatce there is a huge space were you could have for exampel flotation suits when you are going somewhere to pick up people, allso the the main problem with most ribs is that there is to little space for carrying things onboard.

The boat made 53 knots in 1-1,5 m wawes, not bad.

what i like about the boat is that: very low fuel expences (75 liters diesel per hour, 45 knots), big deck space, big space on the engine hatce where you could have diving gear, multi purrpose boat for charter and diving, big space for storing things onboard and of course nice looking.

we allso found a coupple of thing that had to be changed if we were to buy one.
