Stabicraft and Terminator are both in New Zealand. Safeboats are here in Washington State.

Non-RIB Aluminum fishing boats are highly desired here. Its a proven hull material.
I have a POLARKRAFT and she's sharp as hell but with that flighty. Not for open water.

Foam collars are not for me, though thankyou.

I'll investigate Terminators.

Cheers for your response captn

Saw a few different makes at the Southampton Show, some with hypalon toobs.
The 3D tender boats looked pretty good and they had a load of different variants in their range. PVC toobs though.

Specmar Is another, they have a drawing on their website. Ali ribs are damned expensive, for a circa 9m diesel you're looking at £85-100k starting price

Also Alimal ribs are uk built, much more affordable I think but I've seen one at Seawork, pretty agricultural looking, not finished to the highest standard.
