A bargain beside an Atlantic 85 at 214k

Cost maybe includes bespoke launch system, converted motors, specialist nav, comms and DF gear.

It will look cheap the day it's looking for you...

If the launch system is included then yes, Beachley is not for the faint hearted especially at Spring tides ! S

Its an 8m Delta with a Kevlar reinforced hull so it was never going to be cheap. Here is the spec: New next generation Delta 800X Rescue RIB for Severn Area Rescue Association (SARA) - Delta Power Group news, blog, information, product updates, new Delta RIB / RHIB releases

I saw this rib not so long ago at Southampton Dry Stack and took a few photos as she seemed well equipped. I would never have put such a price tag on that rib. Why Kevlar for a rescue boat? it is not as if she has to be bullet proof like some military ribs. in my book over the top unless there is some other specialized equipment involved. Can't think what could be but suppose the government body that gave the grant can justify the expense .

Presumably they perceive a risk of hitting hard stuff in the water (i.e. rocks) as its the glass that is layed up with kevlar. They have another Delta - perhaps they have in the past damaged it on a rocky rescue...

Did Parker not bid for it?

Kevlar? Spec says Composite Material - a jam sandwich could be thus described...

Professor Poly - King of Materials and such things makes the Kavlar claim. Unusually he doesn't appear to have actually provided a decent scientific reference to his claim...
