5.7m RIB with 100hp Yam - how fast?

Hi - our local RIB and quad shop is closing down. They have one last Capelli 570 left, with 100hp Yam, and trailer for 24000 Euros, which is 16 666 pounds.

Firstly, any idea what sort of performance I could expect with this combo? Many have the 115 Yam, so would 100 be underpowered? As long as I can get at least 35 knots, I'll be happy.

Secondly, value? How does that deal look, money wise?

Thanks for any input!

???

Does noone have an opinion on this?

This is a big investment for me, and I'd at least like to get an idea of how this price compares to the UK market for this kind of boat.

Capelli may be not so well known in the UK, but they are basically a high quality RIB manufacturer from Italy, using Hypalon, and the fit and finish of their boats is excellent. Style is kind of family/pleasure, not work or dive.

So is 16.6kú;

a) shockingly expensive

b) about right

c) a bargain, bite their arm off?

sorry don't know anything about Capelli but here's a link to a UK dealer complete with prices, http://www.boatsandoutboards.co.uk/view/HCM014

my guess would be you'd get your 35kts with a 100hp on the 5.7.

The price sounds good to me and I'd have thought 35Knots was achievable.

However I'd think this would be at nearly wide open throttle
not a 1/2 to 2/3s throttle cruising speed.

Thanks

...for this feedback. I was more looking to compare this price with that of similar UK boats, like Ribtec, Tornado, Osprey, etc. They all do boats in this size with 100hp engines, and all are excellent quality, like the Capelli.

I was curious as to how much one would have to pay to get a 5.7 ish m UK with 100hp??

As for speed, I think 36 knots or so would be on the cards. Not a great improvement over the 33 I can get from my 4.7m 60hp Capelli.........

My Ribtec 585 does around 37 knots with a 115 4 stroke, and is still losening up, so i reckon your 35 knots would be on.

As no one else on Robnet appears to have any experience of the Crapelli, it's hard to give an opinion as to whether it's good value. My thoughts would be that the benefit of a cheap purchase price could be lost with a weak residual. The likes of Ribcraft, Ribtec, Osprey etc. will always attract a good re-sale price.

'Crapelli' as you put it is in fact one of the most expensive makes available in France. The level of finish exceeds that that I have seen on a Tornado, and I cannot comment on Ribtec as I have not seen one close up. It is also superior to the Medline series.

I was simply after an idea of the UK price for a quality, well-equipped, family RIB of approx. 5.7m RIB with good 100hp 4 stroke. Having done my own research, it would seem that, with trailer, this is going to be at least 22 k pounds. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

I can get this Capelli for 22 500 Euros, brand new, with 2008 Yam 100hp. I'm pretty convinced that's a good deal, and I intend to go for it, never mind if noone else thinks so!

If weather is ok this weeken, I'll go on a friends rib which is a capelli 5.8 but with 115 HP. max speed is around 35 according to him. I'll check it out this weekend and report back to you.

Interesting... My Ribtec 585 does 30kts with an F100, granted its not best propped for out right speed, but I would be amazed if I could ring out another 5kts top end.
