Bananashark 6 meters...

Does anyone here have the test of it in rib & sportboat mag? Is it a brand new hull on it?

I saw that bananashark have plans for one with mercruisier inboard.

Have you seen the boat in real life, is it nice?

They had one at ribex last year with the Mercruiser 1.7 diesel jet drive that went very well.
Its a different hull to the raceboat yes.

The hull is our own which was modified from an existing Rib (that we bought the rights to!) - email me and I will let you have the test. We have the Mercruiser inboard water jet in the workshop being fitted with a new floor (tekdek) and a new console, it has a wakeboard frame on it and goes very well indeed. We can supply either diesel or petrol in boards as well as any outboard. We believe that the Mercruiser Vazer would be ideal for this hull with it's incredibly low height it would make it possible to make the engine cover the seat.

As to whether the boat looks good you'll have to ask someone else - I'm biased!

Cookee@bananasharkracing.com and I'll send you a copy.

I personally don't like the look of it - I much prefer more traditional styles of RIB like Ribcraft, Solent etc.

Tim are you thinking of the 770? The BananaShark Six is a non stepped traditional style Rib!

It is also on Ebay right now!

I was thinking of the one I saw on ebay when I made that post

I'm sure it's a great boat, but I just don't fancy the look of it.
