Ribs from distant shores

i've just come back from a job in the Med - 4 days on a Greek Island - and I saw two unusual ribs. The first belongs to the Hellenic Coast Guard and had a mounting for rather a large machine gun on the bow:-



And this very "interesting" rib. Popwered by 2 very large Mercury diesels on outdrives. I can't decide if I like it or not!!

The island wasn't lefkas was it, the first pic looks like Nidri, did a Neilson sailing holiday there last summer. Have seen that rib or one similar, looks very much the same.
