12ft Valiant RIB?

Anyone heard of valiant making small RIBs?

Ive seen one advertised but no pics. Wondering what It would be like.

Yes they made RIBs from 2.4m through to 8.5m Manufactured at the Brunswick plant in Portugal. They stopped building about 2-3 years ago and are being built under licence in the Arimar factory in Italy

Ive got a valiant D340 with a 20hp Yamaha 2 stroke on the back. Its a decent little rib, and pretty quick. Its pretty bouncy in chop. I like the double skinned floor.

Nice for playing on the beach or a gentle trip up the river, but not a serious rib in any shape or form.
