That's what I saw in Penryn about 10 years ago.

Had a customer looking for a big RIB. There were two as far as I know - the one in the pictures above which was afloat in Plymouth and a red one which was part completed at the Factory.

Production had stopped as the purchaser had "disappeared". Why you would want a boat capable of 60 knots, 600 miles, a wheelhouse only big enough for two persons and able to carry a tonne of cargo I can't imagine.........

That's what I meant to say!

Pretty sure its design was heavily "influenced" by a 1980's sunseeker.
