Holy mother of god! If you didn't know that was coming you would jump right out your boat!!

I don't think it is really a true rib!! Bit lame on the tubes.!!

You're thinking of Kerakoll which became the Sony boat, and it isn't one of those! That was a Buzzi.

I went on board the test boat when I was exhibiting at the Sports Boat and Rib show and it was having a refit. Peter Dredge the ex RYA powerboat racing manager was involved this is the website

I would have sworn it was one of these if they didn't say it was a British design

Wouldn't say it was a rib, more a plastic boat with built in fenders :P
