Based on pictures Polaris Neptune and this Zodiac mentioned by @sailrib have tubes out of the water surface when boat stay.
Different than Highfield for example.
When you step on tubes does not your boat to be shaky

>>>>>>>>>>>>

Probably such boats are much faster because you do not drag tubes.

Mine isn't. I had it built to be as wide as possible but still legally trailerable.

Also, mine sits with tubes in the water at rest. All the Polaris boats I've seen do, but I haven't seen any recent ones (from less than, I'd guess at least 6 years.)

You have this at the extreme end of the range! : Air Ranger 1260 RIB Used Boat for Sale 2008 | TheYachtMarket

I've seen it a few times in Guernsey, and it does look incredibly solid. Has been on the market a long time though...

Back to cheaper solution. I can not judge movie. I'm not boat builder.
I'm IT person but found clip "how to" about Highfield boats.



I was hoping for full automation production line with many robots
But generally it is something like production line.

A little sorry that nobody invest to build such factory in EU, especially in Poland.
GRP in Poland is still manual work, time consuming and not good for lugs I think. When I visited my friend who make boats I always have cough.

Yeah they are a bit special!..real hand built masterpieces of construction which match exactly the shape of the normal well proven Hull designs!...
speed wise the 6.8 Alloy outperforms the Fibreglass Hull by quite some distance!
As said Noise is greatly increased too...not of tooo much of a consideration when it's a military remote controlled Drone with a .40 cal chain gun on it!

@Maximus, do you have any links to pictures/movies of ALU leisure Ribcraft ?
Or they made only commercial/RNLI versions or military ?

If ALU version costs 2 times more than GRP and GRP is more expensive than similar other boats made in UK I wonder how they look and perform.
Did RIBCRAFT show the ALU leisure version of any boat -show ever ?

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

I saw only these 3 pictures over internet (the same you can find in RIBCRAFT PDF for 2014)

Sorry Matt I don't...
I saw one under construction once and it was VERY impressive..thier fabricator had CONDTRUCTED ...Hand built!..a Dolly/Frame enabling him to fabricate the exact same dimensions of Hull shape...Deadrise...Chines ect as the ordinary version... A real piece of precision engineering in itself!!..that's before you start adding the Alloy!
I think they work out around "double bubble" price wise.
If you are interested why not contact them direct for some more info/ pictures.
