Dunno much about the Attaque, but the Seasport is a bit cack.

Nose light, slamming hull yacht tendery type thing.

Awful build quality too, the SR4 build is streets ahead. Sr4 is far superior anyway as it's a deep v.

Surely the Humber Assault is the unloved hull, not the Attaque. I seem to remember favourable reports? Was it the forerunner to the Destroyer or the Ocean Pro?

Humber experts!

Yep.

I actually tried to buy one (it was CHEAP and the motor ran) a couple of years ago til I saw the transom delaminating. It was about 2/3 the thickness of an SR4 transom and barely had any glass over the ply.

Avon vs Humber Attaque

Hmmmm thanks for all that.....

Now looking as an Avon SR as well - need a boat that's tough and copes with reasonable seas...

Dont confuse the boat

I have a humber attaque , this is now sold by Humber as the 2m beam Ocean Pro.

Rigid Inflatable Boats - a vast range of quality ribs for both leisure crafts and sports craft from Humber Inflatables


No issues with mine, amazing sea keeping capabilities

Don't confuse it like a lot of people do with the shallow V assault.

I too have an Attaque. Not done much with it yet as I only bought it in Nov, but it rides and handles well on the flat. Carves a nice turn. It's narrow (or feels it) next to some RIBS of equivalent length. I've not been out in anything rough but it's two previous owners (both posters on here) had nothing but good things to say about it.
