Have a look at the Shearwater 860 RIB. That has a smallish cabin.
I have looked at the Arctic Blue 27 as well but I have the same dilemma and am also contemplating a hardboat (!) with a large outboard engine that can get me the same sort of speeds, a Nordkapp 760 Noblesse (www.nordkapp-boats.no
) or an Ibiza 24 Touring (www.ibizaboats.no)
If you look hard at the price of a RIB it is very hard to justify the amount of money when you can get a hardboat for the same money with a lot more creature comforts!
