I am being tempted to move to the dark side . I know it won't be the same but........ I would still keep the rib
This is the very latest from our stable the Parker 750 DC

Hi Andre. Horses for courses! As we are all getting older and have more than our fair share of being bashed around a bit of comfort is just what the doctor ordered. Never saw the sense of a Rib anyway. Alan P

Hi Alan, you have a point. My better half thinks the cabin version would be a much better choice . A roof over the head, a galley and a WC down below.

Tut, tut. Andre, get a grip. Unless you live in a bungalow, she's got that already, hasn't she?

Tut, tut. Andre, get a grip. Get a Baltic 10m Cruiser. You know you both want to and the Economic Time is right. Enough with the Weekender Hardboat already...

Yes that would be the best alternative only not the right craft for a demo rib . Anyway got one on order but for a client in the med so will have a chance for some play.

Right? I know someone who's planning a NEW one for just that very purpose. You gotta reach for the stars!

Andre,
I have thought for some time that now is the perfect moment to launch a leisure version of the 1600 Interceptor.
Forget the orange and go for a luxury fit out. There is a gap in the market for a truly seaworthy boat of that size.
