What kind of RIB is this?

4 Yamaha 300s?

This thing must be big, fast, and expensive.

Google it. I want to say it's designed locally (Newport Beach, CA) and built in New Zealand by the skippers brother. There are YouTube videos on it.

From what I have read that boat was custom built for Emirates Team New Zealand, they designed it in house too....

One of the other team, Artimis has a couple of 40 foot yellowfins, very nice boats....

Morelli and Melvin are famous sailing catamaran designers.


For example one of their monster round-world record breaker cats



You can believe that rib wasn't cheap. Awesome boat.
