Zodiac Hurricane 640 Rigid Inflatable Boat - $20400 (Lahaina, Maui, Hawaii)

Zodiac Hurricane 640 Rigid Inflatable Boat

That seems like a lot of motor for a 640. I wonder how that feels at speeds of almost 50mph.
A little difficult to see the driver's seat. Looks like a half jockey?
Nice looking boat though.

Hurricane 640

That is certainly different. Definitely a convert from an inboard. Probably serves them well as a whale watch boat.

He must not have that boat propped right, the first 640 that I converted had a 250 on it and would run over 50kts...

They sure do - even more odd as we rarely see Seariders larger than 5.4m here in the States.

The larger Seariders are rare in the US. I have had a few 6 meters but only ever seen two over that size stateside. I have a customer with a 7.4 meter Searider. It is a very nice boat and look like it's built like a tank.

Look like the tubes off a 7m Willard maybe? Aren't avon sr tubes glue on? Would have to be some sort of bolt/ slide on tubes to fit a hurricane. I say 7m because those seem to stick out a meter too far past the transom.
