Interesting that you would bring up our 630 and you are from Ireland . well we have more 630s in Ireland then in the UK of course not as many as there are Redbays. I do not know the exact locations of these ribs as they have probably changed hands etc
I have had 3 demo models all diesel the 1.7 TDI . superb partnership and very good for long distance cruising. I took the first one to St Malo and later to Cherbourg.
our 630 has now been extended to 650. the fuel tank now has a capacity of 150 ltrs and we have already fitted the very latest QSD 2.0 (170HP) with Bravo 1 leg. This model has thru the hull cooling. Forget the 1.7 TDI the engine now for a 650 size rib is for sure the Cummins QSD 2.0 170HP with Bravo 1 leg
The Parker 630/650 is for sure a very good sea boat with great capabilities and a winner in her class
The orange rib in the photo is now in our showroom awaitng the spring. This rib was purchased by Mazurian WOPR (inland water rescue. The console is positioned forward to give max deck space. These guys have a lot of our ribs including several 750 and 900 cabin models. The mazurian lake district is massive. the other photo are of the QSD 2.0 170 HP engine and then two showing our Chris doing what he likes best off the baltic coast. The engine is the 1.7 TDI (120HP)
the all black Parker 630 has a Verado 150 and takes 8 persons. The photo was taken in Gdynia Marina . Just beyond that rib you can see our Arrow which had twin Verado 300
If you want long distance cruising and the hours and economy then go diesel say the QSD 2.0 150HP which has the Alpha 1 leg
Is somebody trying to tell me that my next demo rib should be a 650 with the QSD 2.0 (170HP)?
