Advice 6m - 7m offshore rib

I have been looking on the second hand market at the Delta & Tornado ribs between 6m and 7m and I was surprised at the small size of twin outboards they will take.

Can anyone recommend a make of rib with a decent offshore style hull and raised bow but one that will take larger twin outboards and a faster hull design?

I was hoping for at least twin 130 - 2 strokes

Any thoughts or advice welcome,

Mike

Well the first brand that comes to mind is Halamtic and their Arctic range. Brand new I'd suggest getting somebody else to pay for it but second hand you can get some good examples for 10 grand hull only.

The other alternatives would be Delta and MST.

They did look a little bit "well 'ard" it had to be said!!

Some of them had Police on the back of their jackets but had strong America accents ........ strange that!

The United States of America = World Police (including the Eastern Solent!)

Halmatic will do it, I've got a 22 with twin 115's, can't see why you couldn't put something bigger on. Tried to upload a photo but it won't let me!!
