The Bay of Gdansk, Poland , 17/18 March

Well following the Warsaw Boat Show the only thing left was to get the Black Beauty on the water and find out what she could do. It was a long drive to the coast and unfortunately for the two days we had planned the weather as you will see from the photos was rather calm. The twin 150 Optimax are just for the time being as that was what we had available but on order are 2 x 250 Verado and for sure will make a difference.

With the twin Optimax 150 max speed during the second day was 48 knots. We expect this to improve considerably

for the benefit of those who know the Bay of Gdansk we launched at Gorki Zachodnie (West Hills) and this is where the first two photos were taken, just before heading into the Bay

Just too calm waters, perhaps another day and an excuse to go again

My guess is the Hel Lighthouse?
Or the Justarnia?
...or is it Wladyslawowo?

What is the purpose of the boat? I mean 2x150 hp OBs and 48 knots sounds just right for a boat of that size, but 2x250 hp is more like speedy suicide, perhaps a raceboat configuration. I am just curious, for what application scene this boat is designed? It looks nice in pictures at sea.

Nice try but sorry wrong answer. The Hell lighthouse is much further out on the opposite side of the Bay We were just along the coast east from the Port of Gdynia


Pitkis

the Baltic range has designed to take twin diesels and cabin and this particular rib in the outboard version is just for testing, demos and fun. The twin 150 HP was ok with a few persons on board but with max persons you could feel the difference. For sure not a racing rib but at the same time nice to have the power

By the way when you were at the Stockholm Boat Show did you come across a rib known as C-RIB with a Mercury 225

Great photos and the RIB looks like a top piece of kit Andre.

Any news on a delivery date for Seahawk 2?
