Ballistic RIBs chart plotters

handling characteristics and design is the same as the Ballistic 7.8 m and with its high performance deep V hull, this model is sure to provide you with hours of pleasure.
Why do Ballistic put such tiny chartplotters on their ribs?

The ones on the 7.8 on their website appear to be the mid-size Lowrance plotters.

Kind of low end for a good size RIB (It's the same size as I've got on my approx 6m, but that's due to cost constraints more than anything...)

I'd guess you could specify the equipment you wanted.
