Had a good look over these at the LBS. On surface seemed to be solidly made and reasonably well thought out.

However when talking to the guy on the stand doubts started to creep in.

Q. Whats the max engine this boat is plated for ?
Answer was along the lines , We build each boat individually and so can make it strong enough to fit any engine we feel the customer can handle.

This certainly was not the answer I was expecting.
The answers to some of my other questions also (for me) got some unusuall replies.

Having said that the they were happy to arrange a trial run in any boat if I so desired.

The Blue boat had a wide beam and medium V hull the larger white boat adjacent looked nicer and had a deeper v hull.

Made to order in Devon/Cornwall I believe

Manos,

I got the same answers to those questions also.

I spoke to him for about 40 minutes & was left with the impression that these ribs are NOT for Speed Merchants!"!

The engines that they fit do the job required & the hull design is set up more for gettting up on the plane than outright top speed.

The design loked very, very good & the space on the 5.75m rib (Blue one) was amazing.
Very impressed, & if I'm in the area will take him up on his offer of a ride!

Pete

Sorry I meant the white rib (5.75m)!

I believe the Blue Rib is 4.8m with an offset control panel with the fuel tank placed inside it (the front cover lifts up) although they will also fit underfloor tanks (but cost a lot)!! on this model.
