Hi, We have three Ballistic 5.5m Ribs on the Dry Stack. One has a 75hp E-Tec, one has a 90hp E-tec and one has a 115hp E-tec. Having driven all three I think they are great little boats and perfect for The Solent. The 115 can be a bit of a handfull!!!! I believe the 5.5's were not hypalon tubes but the others in the range are.

By the way, just sold one for 12,500 details here Ballistic 5.5m RIB For Sale
You get what you settle for!

Id never heard it either until I started to look into the Ballistic range, some people / testers use this phrase to describe the shape of the hull and the chines.

We keep our boat at Trafalgar Wharf and the guys at JBT are very helpful and give a first class service.
