Andre I am not trying to be nasty just expressed very honestly MHO and what I think.
I just think that the boats are too square (always talking about the superstructure). No immagination about the design of the superstructure.
The boat (always IMHO) could have been more pleasing to the eye (my eye any way). More sporty looking or something. IMHO the boat misses this little special thing that will give a buzz. So when one looks at it one says YES I LIKE IT. To me as it looks right now with that not very pleasing to the eye super structure on top (have seen photos of yours and also some photos David posted) it just screams Eastern Block.
This is my very personal oppinion it does not mean that the boats are not good in any way, shape or form and others may think that the boats look great

PS The open version looks fine. Is the cabin version I'm talking about.

Yes, but they all are cabin RIBs.

Isn't the thing with RIBS that they are a versatile platform. If they are going to be used as work boats then a cabin is essential really to attract commercial operators. Likewise a Cabin Rib makes a very viable alternative to a fast fisher such as an Osprey and comes in a lot cheaper.

Andre Out of interest how much is the Cabin Parker with say a Yamaha 420 inboard.
