Suzumar 350 - reviews and opinions?

Hi all,

I've done a search, not much info... I don't believe they are made any more.

Whats the general consensus on them compared against a Honwave say?

thanks

Stuart

If it a Sib as far as I'm aware they are pretty much the same thing as the Honwave.
Both made in the same factory in China by Sunsport ?
I have a 2010 Honwave 3.5ae aluminium floored Sib.
Can't fault it - absolutely bomb proof.
Not sure if you are referring to a Sib or a DS 350 Suzumar Rib tho.

Hi, looking at a sib, sorry, thought they only made one.

Inflatable floor job similar to the Honwave.

With a Suzuki 15hp four stroke...

Are the SIB and the DS 350 not the same? I.e. Is a DS350 not a SIB?!

Yes the DS-350VIB is an air floor SIB and still available new.

...and there is the DS-350 which is a hard hull RIB so a bit confusing indeed. But I think Stuart is looking at the Honwave clone air floor that Chipko links.

As said above made as Honwave... i.e. great quality for the money. I reckon the most noticeable difference to a Honwave... apart from the colour scheme... is that used Suzumars I've seen had a varnished transom & seat compared with the Honwave's GRP finish on both.

Not the hard floor which i've now learnt is the DS-350!

Yes, has a varnished transom etc as you say, not GRP.

Hi Stuart as well as the 3.5m Aluminium floored Honwave I mentioned earlier I've also just recently acquired the 3.8m inflatable floor variant.
Only used it once but already love it.
Same bomb proof build as on the 3.5m.
Can't speak for the Suzumar version but pretty sure it will be cut from the same cloth.
