4.5 humber assault V 4.5 Brig falcon

Please Help -Looking to buy either of the above. My only reservation is that the Brig is PVC and I am unsure as to how it will behave in choppy waters?

Welcome to RIBnet. The Humber Assault has quite a shallow vee and isn't going to be great in a chop. The Brig, well, have a read of this:

Brig Heavy-duty HD410, HD460 - how good are they?

welcome to the forum :-)

both are shallow V's so probably little difference i'd have thought in terms of handling choppy stuff.

if you know what your budget is then perhaps the guys with experience in this size range can chime in with more options that may suit your needs better.

cheers

If you're looking for a 4 point something RIB that'll perform in sea, forget the above.

An Avon Searider 4.7m is the daddy in your size range followed by the Ribcraft 4.8.
