Swiss Boat Show 2011

I could not resist posting these pictures of the Parker 1000 Baltic at the Swiss Boat Show. The choice of colour of the tube was initially a suprise to us but looking now at the photos of the rib - it looks good.

One would not immediately associate Switzerland with boats and especially with RIBS. But for such a small and mountain country that is our second 10 mtr rib. The first was a cabin version supplied to the Swiss Rescue.

like that a lot!

Do you have any larger pics? not sure the colour is for me but like the layout! is a 10 meter rib a bit decadent for 2 people?

If you look on our web page you will see that the 12mtr Interceptor has tapered tubes. This is not an issue for us only not everybody wants tapered tubes

As Andre said it's not a problem... and even if you look closely at the photos you will see that the swiss boat on display has had the tube slightly tapered.

it is not built like most Parker Baltic with the huge robust nose... it's still pretty large however slightly tapered. have a closer look
