Atlantic / Arctic ?

If I remember correctly,

The Atlantics were also offered by Halmatic as rescue craft for North Sea standy vessels and the like.

Arctic has tubes secured in an aluminium channel.
Atlantic has tubes glued on.

Atlantic has wide planing flat on the bottom
Arctic - not sure if it does or not - but suspect not.

My old boss had an ex RNLI Atlantic 21. Very well balanced boat. Twin 50/55hp two cylinder Evinrudes and made 32/33 knots.
Planing flat made for a bit of a harsh ride when going fast but good accelleration.
Fantastic quality build.
If it makes 33 knots from 110hp it should be reasonably economical with a modern engine?

Put an opti / e-tec / hpdi on it of about 150hp and I reckon it should do maybe 40 knots and cruising at a bit below 30 at 1 litre per mile?

Could be a good boat and not a lot of money if the condition is good.

Many moons ago (1992?) had a ride in a MOD Police RIB which I think was an Arctic 22 with twin 140hp (2 stroke) Suzukis. Went like stink.

Spoken with Paul at Ferry Marine and this is an Arctic 22 not atlantic. It is 5k as per first advert (not 50k as the second one suggested).

Anyone know the weight of this boat?

Ahhh right, that's why he re-advertised it then. Still I think it'll be a bargain for someone.

Tim did Paul say he'd take an offer for it?

I think that fully loaded an RNLI Atlantic is about 1500kg?

I would think it is more like 2500kg's fully rigged with a tank of gas. Pete 7 would have an Idea.

3200lbs for an Atlantic 75 with twin 70hp:

2500kg sounds about right for a Pacific.

Andy, at 1600 kgs you might need one of these trailers to launch it,
