Nice looking craft buy whats the price? Still you could keep Nashers revenge, park it on the fore deck as a tender

my thinking on this is that a rib of this size would give you a bit more of a safety margin than a hard boat (but a rag and stick would be better) in some of the waters and (for instance) a trip from Nice to Sardinia.You might have to pick your windows very carefully in a hardboat of similar size and I will not be doing it all in the height of summer

However I agree that a rib of any kind is not as practical as a hard boat of similar length for easy Med days

I usually hire a Cap Camaret 755 in Nice and although ribs are available they just do not give you the storage , cover and volume

having crossed the Atlantic and spent some time in the Carribean on a 56 foot cat I guess you cant beat a cat but I just don't get along with all those ropes and rags

Interesting comment on build quality -I will report back if I get a demo

Last time I pretended to be a genuine intested customer it took 6 emails to get the price for a basic spec out of them.

@2,000,000 Euros

Dream material.

If you run twin Mercruiser Diesel 4.2's with XR Drives the basic boat price starts at 142,925+VAT.

Build times at the moment is 8 weeks.

29 Cabin

I brought the 29 back after Ribex near my house to Topsham as Im running both craft in plus our Race boat. Both Craft are fantastic value!! I would say the cabin is slightly low in the 37 but they are also making a 29 cabin. For the money they are great value. PM if you want me to take you out in either boats.
I have been trying to get information on the launch of the 29 cabin for over a year but have not been able to get any info from agent/dealer, do you have any info on dates that this craft will become available

that second cabin rib looks great to me; as does the Lagoon power on a totally different scale

the crunch has put back the trip for this year ; never know might have compulsory time on hands if things do not get better - but I think this trip needs to begin in May or early June to get the benefit of the summer months

I was a bit suprised to discover the "arctic blue's" weren't actually a finely crafted Norwegian rib, but a Polish boat built by a company that also builds hot tubs and shower enclosures!!!
