Yes and no, sold a 10,5m to a guy in Norway and he is very pleased that the tubes are fitted high, he takes around 15 divers onboard with double set of tubes, the tubes are just at the water line when he is loaded to get stability and during the run the tubes are just out of the water and doesnt take the speed down (and it takes the fuelconsumption down)
But remember on several boats we have cutted the topsides down so the tubes are lower than standard so its not a problem if you want lower tubes.
I know of two 12m Ring that are for sale, one used with engines and one new that can be fitted with the equipment you need, both boats has standard fitted tubes.
PM me if you are interested.
