Have to join with all the others in praise of the Ribcraft.
Mine is a bit bigger, 9m, but she is a gem.

Great build, great sea boat, look the part and does the job.
Have driven many over the years and have to say she is deff the best so far.

If you ever in this neck of the wwods and want a test drive give me a call.

All the best

Ribeye all the way

Hey, again with everyone else, definately the ribeye boats are the best that i drive as a commercial skipper in the solent, the handling and practicality are just A*... As previously said in another message maybe worthwhile looking at a boat where you can helm from the back and observe your passengers, only disadvantage is you tend to get a bit wetter than you would helming at the front!

I have never had a problem with people sitting on the rear bench at the stern of the boat.. The only seat you need to be careful of is on boats where you helm from the front and its the seat infront of the steering column otherwise known as the "suicide seat" in choppy weather!
