Just not convinced on the wind assisted thing if I'm honest, still, I'm not known for my patience.
Apologies for my ignorance, I had to google 'WAFI'

I used to own a yacht. They're ok and sailing can actually be quite exciting. But yachts aren't the best choice if you only have the weekends and they're certainly no use if you want to explore la France profonde.

I love yacht sailing, the silence when you shut down the engine and are just under sail is magical But I also love fast ribs and hard boats I am lucky that I can do both.

And my present one an Excalibur ..While I try not to say never I would find it very difficult to go back to a hard boat doing the type of boating I do , If you do a lot of dropping in and out of harbours within a short distance like I do around the South West Cork coast calling to The likes of Cape Clear ,Baltimore ,Schull etc. I found that with a hard boat you were constantly having to be careful with fenders trying not to damage gel coat , with the rib while I would still be fairly careful I find they are more suitable to this style of boating..then again if it's what suits..
Hi Ribliam,
I can only agree with that,there is nothing quite like 'Excaliburing' around that lovely area.
Cheers,

Ooooh. A redbay cabin, that could be the answer. Bit out of budget maybe though.

Well, done a bit of digging on the net and the Spectrum 480 is known as a Cortina 480 outside of the uk. They are built in Poland by Delphia yachts.
Delphia Yachts - Home page

They also build all of the Quicksilver and some Arvor boats for Brunswick. Apparently they build about 3200 boats a year in total.

I'm still in a quandry. Interesting video of one here with a 90 bearing in mind it's rated to 60. Looks like it could be a capable little hull for its size. Half way through is better video.



I thinks a seatrial is defo in order. It would have to really impress on the water for me to swap the humber for one to be honest. Ribstuff have given me an excellent quote on an E-tec 60 though.
