Race hull?

If you want a rib just for fun (no classrace).

What hull do you think give best performance?

Do i need a stepped hull for speed?

Revenger 23 without stepped hull, is that a fast hull?

Any fast racerib with jockeyseat or bolster or simular?

Looking for a adrenalinerib

All depends on what size boat / engine package you want to go for. I may have a couple of options as looking at selling my own boat at some point due to a couple of new design / build projects.

A 7m RIB, stepped hull with 150 E-Tec HO.

Adam,

When time is... i will contact you. Your kr7 with e-tec looks very nice. We have right now plans for a bigger boat (not a rib) and if i can find any money for it after that....

Bladerunner

Not really a RIB but Ice Marines former race Bladerunner is for sale at Essex Boat Yards for £39K. It's a steal - new they are over £200k. genuine 90mph plus (99. something on a good day if the race propellers come with it!). Has twin 2.5EFi 280hp.

http://www.essexboatyards.com/stockl...ner-34-RS6-334

See it underway here:

Drove it one afternoon, on charter!, and it is a beast. Very easy and calm up to about 60mph but comes alive once you get some air running through the tunnels.
Same designer as Cookees RIB - Lorne Campbell
