hmmm for £1.5m and 1750hp I'd want something that did more that 32 knots and a lot more comfort than a surface peircing submarine. Perhaps it's just me but what's the point? Plus from what I've heard she does not corner too well!!

re VSV and the 2,000 club

i very sadly read the entire build program and construction diary, and one thing that was metioned was that the owners are part of an exclusive 2000 club which is for people who have traveled over 2000 miles in a rib

any body throw any light on this

Andy

nice boat wish i had the money

It was founded by Richard Reddyhoff and Jan Falkowski a few years ago. The 2000 miles has to have been completed in one trip. They are very strict about this: apparently Richard's nephew fell short of the mark by 53 miles! More details were in the February edition of Riblines, the magazine of BIBOA The RIB Club.

True and those who completed the Round Britain in 1999 qualified. I still wear the green sweat shirt with the Club 2000 logo . JK should have one as well

Saw the VSV on the Bank Holiday in Portsmouth Marina. Looks stunning.

They were getting ready to berth and were putting fenders out along the side. Looked like a very precarious job as the side rails are about as wide as a human foot! Was expecting them to slip off the side!

Then had a nasty trip back to Southampton and got absolutely soaked. Saw two ribs following a windsurfer (nutter) and that was about it.

We saw it from behind on Sunday and thought it looked awful. Then when we realised what it was....

Here's a few more photos that have just turned up. All taken near the Needles and Bridge marker.
Thanks to Karen for these. Most appreciated.
