But it was rather scary to drive at those speeds...
With 12 pers aboard it went 57 knots.


If you want a "steady as a rock"-boat capable of 65 knots with 14 people buy this one

A 9,5m Ring with twin 300 suz is doing 60kn, have rigged some that been doing up to 62 depending on the equipment, the 10,5m is approx 2-3 knots slower.
These data is with bravo i props, with the original suz props they do around 2kn less.
Fabian, we have now both 9,5m and 10,5m for testdrive in Stockholm, both with twin 300 Suz.

We did not find a boat that suited our use, so we designet one ourselves.
This is boat nr 3, and we are getting closer each time. Volvo D6/370, 55 ltr/hr dutyfree diesel in 45 knots with 10 pax. We will get new regulations for the business i Norway next year. It will probably be a speed limit of 45 or 50 knots with one Skipper/crew, so thats why we are satisfyed with the speed

Would one dare to opt for the 350 Verado engine to use on an charter application?

Have you considered the 9m Ribcraft?
We have one with twin 250hp Suzuki's, this gives us in excess of 59knots, with twin 300hp it will go faster.

I can't fault ours, good solid boat that handles all sea states very well. Very stable and the fit out is second to none, sorry Andre.
Likewise can't fault the Suzuki engines, 300 hours in just under 12 months and not skipped a beat.

Feel free to have a nose at our website, few pix on there, PM me if you want more.

www.horizonseasafaris.co.uk

Unlike a lot of boats in this class she looks like she is built for chater and not an off shore work boat. Having said that the Parker does looks good.

We are on the verge of ordering our second boat and it will take a hell of a lot of convincing for me not to buy another Ribcraft. In fact have just asked for a quote today.
