A few things the CZ7's got-
Air Suspension Deck
A hull thats thicker than cod prawns head
Well I would have thought the hull shape had quite a lot to do with it - along with the tubes of course - and Avon are pretty experienced on that front!!!
Air suspension deck? Sounds great - but as it's made using the same stuff as in trainers you get the same effect by wearing a pair of Nikes!!!
The Avon also had Ullman seats
Radar and an aluminium console - yup
So apart from the onboard compressor they seem to have quite a lot in common!!!
I am NOT trying to rubbish someone elses boat - the CZ7 is awesome but I still think it is overpriced - or was when it came out.
As to a following sea that is always a RIB's weak point - looking at that big pad the outboards are attached to I would worry what would happen if a big wave crashed down on it from behind. a canoe stern it's most certainly not!!!
Good review of the Avon here
