6 - 7m RIB

Hi,
I live in Norway and I am looking for a 6-7m RIB. I've been looking at the Voyager 645 and the 6.4/6.8 by Tornado.
Any other suggestions?

Hi anicdu!

Ive been looking for a new RIB in about 1 year now. Ive been testing a lot. My absolute favourite brand is Osprey. Why dont you go for an Osprey Viper or Viper Max. I know there is a few for sale in Sweden.

Best Regards

Staffan

In that case, strike Scorpion from your list as 7.5m is the starting size.

Have a look at an Excalibur

It is worth looking at a www.gaelforceventures.com for a seaworthy well found vessel.

I think OB petrol would be the right option me...
However, I have kind of narrowed it down to a tornado or osprey seaharrier. Any last objections/suggestions?
