Best Rib with 150 HP

Hi ,
I race in France with an Italian Rib, but I want to get a British race rib. I want to keep my engine (150 Vmax hpdi )to stay in my class.

We're actually at 50 Knts but we need 5/7 knts more...

Witch rib do you thinks is better for that speed...

Thanks for answers...

Hi Olive - Our BananaSharks are built for 200 hp, although of course you could fit any size you want! Happy to supply any details you need - feel free to email / PM any questions you might have and I'll try to help you out.


The BananaShark is a 7.3m tandem cockpit race rib with a hard nose and tapered tubes

Thanks, I've seen your fabulous hule on the dock's lift in Cowes during the Ribex.
For me, best length is between 6 and 7 m. The weight is very important too.

Actually our 6m is about 1 ton !!! The Rib without engine, seats and console is about 6OO Kg weight ! I think that it's too much !

Also, we 've got a good speed of 50 knts for a Rib which is 1 ton weight's and 150 HP !



Sorry for my bad english...

Regards.

Just a small question regarding the cover you have in the front, we tried that on a boat and we lost 2 knots because we got down force from wind in bow.
You don`t have any probs with that?

No ! we've no difference speed with or without cover.
it's more a sponsoring support !

Note that we are standing up in the Rib. If we were down in the boat like a jet cockpit, we were taken mor care to the aerodynamics effects

Hi

We build a 6.5M stepped hull RIB (7M Overall length) that is aimed at the 115 to 150 hp market.

The boat has been designed as a RIB (rather than modified sportsboat), has a twin tapered step arrangement with a double chine. We believe we have a very good balance between speed and excelllent handling / rough water abilities.

Let me know if you require any more information, or some more background info at www.k4plus.com

Adam,

Your RIB looks very very nice. I had a sneaky peak when it was moored in the marina at the Cowes Classic. Also observed it slicing very nicely through the chop off cowes.

Have you seen my piccies in the Gallery of the Cowes Classic? There are a few of K4+ including one of your cat.

Cheers

Tim
