Medium-ish v hull - not as good in the ruff as say a SR5.4.
I believe the same hull as the Adventure 5.60.

Nice boats tho..

Not as deep a vee as a searider 5.4, but still nice tho will do about 33 knots with a 90 rated up to 115hp tho..
Higher bow than a searider so you stay drier tho!!

Is the V deep enough to help with the rough stuff? the other rib I have been offered is a 5.25 Osprey Viper

My neighbour's son has a Avon 5.65 Supersport, the sea-keeping is hopeless.
