Anyone got a Cabin Rib Zodiac N-Z0?
I am new to Ribnet having sulked away for many years on YBW.com, and have decided to get a dayboat for the North Wales coastline, and what I really like is the new Zodiac N-Z0.
Did anyone read the article in september Motor Boat Monthly on Cabin Ribs? the Zodiac N-Z0, looks pretty good as a day boat, and the review was good apart from the comment on power. I was thinking about a RIB or maybe a small cuddy sports boat anyway as an option for day boating, and the idea of a RIB with the addition of a dry area and a loo for the swmbo makes it look a good package, and the pricing is pretty OK as well.
It seems to cover the odd overnight, the good day out, ski-ing and fishing, and good handling, and with a better engine, could be a nice package, and I can dry store it or tow it.
For those who havent seen it, its nearly 7m, with a 3.2m beam, and is priced from £37,000 - currently it has a 225hp outboard, although it looks as though there may be a faster option available.
Strikes me as a good deal, and I hope to take a look at the model they have at Southampton boat show, but would be interested if anyone has actually been in one, or test driven it?
