Anyone see the Parker Cabin at Ribex?

I believe they were supposed to show the 9m Baltic Cabin RIB there..
...if so, any pics or words would be great....

all the best

Yes

Yes, truely awseome. No pictures. But can answer any questions. Also saw the Coastline 8.3m cabin. Even more stellar, went out in it, but different type of solution.

I went out in it today and was impressed. It still needs some work on some areas, particularly the internal layout and the windscreen, but Andre knows about that.

The cabin is has massive wrap round windows so visibility is excellent and it doesn't feel claustrophobic at all. The interior mouldings are well finished and it's a very smart boat. The demo boat has suspension seats which are too soft and I was bouncing all over the place -- quite funny, but the novelty would wear off quite quickly!

The ride is good and with twin 120hp diesels we were getting a top speed of 40 knots. It may not be the fastest or most exciting RIB on the market, but you could cover a lot of miles very easily in this boat.

Are you sure? I thought it was twin 4.2litre diesels giving a lot more power than than.

You may be right. I expect Andre will let us know

Didnt get out in it but talking to Andre he said it had twin 230hp Mercruisers. (& that Parker will only fit mercury / mercruiser products to their RIBS, which is fair enough as Andre also has an interest in mercruiser/merc distribution in Poland!)

That does sound more realistic. Lack of sleep and too much sun . . .

It still feels like it would happily take more power though. In the conditions we had yesterday you could have kept the throttles on the stops and still not spilt your gin and tonic!

JWalker would have loved to see it.

It looked fantastic.

Great cabin...really attractive !!!!!
Looked stylish and hardy. Hope to see Andre and Wiesia enjoy it for a little trip before some lucky owner snaps it up. You deserve it

Andre!
That last pic is very cool! Is that coming off a wave?
Did I see that RIB heading in the direction of Southampton docks yesterday around 1800? I was heading the other direction in a yellow RIB.

yes that was us and I do remember a yellow rib

The jump was helped by the wake from QM2, mind you not the style for a cabin rib specially a family cruiser when one is just about to have a nice cool pint from the bottle

Good point but a great pic nonetheless.

Disappointed that I didn't get over to meet yourself and the other RIBnetters but maybe next time.

All the best Andre.

I'm not saying I don't trust you. I'm just saying what the GPS showed when I was driving the boat with the throttles on the stops!

Oh well, I'll just have to have another go on it to make sure

Cabin layout?

Andre,

Great to finally see this boat...now I wish I had taken the time to go to RIBex...ah well....
Any chance of some pictures or drawings of deck and interior layout?
Any deliveries this summer to Stockholm that one might have a look at?
Will Peder have a demo boat at all?

best
Janne A.
