BananaShark are number 1!

In the June issue (I know it's only May!) of Sports Boat and Rib the BananaShark 770 (they called it a 77 though) was voted top of the Top 5 Ribs above Pascoe, Revenger, RIB-X and Sorcerer - we're obviously very happy and modestly not in the slightest bit suprised!

770 Bananashark with 2x2 jockeyseats, nice console and a rear sofa. In little more traditional style like Revenger and Scorpion. Then the boat is number 1 for me 2.

All know that the hull is very nice....

All of them!

Joakim - I realise some people would prefer jockey seats, but have you tried our seating position with a foot throttle? It really is like driving a sports car and just as much fun, you also have more of a feeling of sitting "IN" the boat rather than "ON" it, therefore giving one a feeling of greater security.

We can offer 2 more seats if you sacrifice the floor locker which is mainly used for skis, fenders, ropes etc, but there is still the anchor locker, the foredeck locker which is nearly 6 feet long, and the option of the 2 lockers on the aft deck, so you won't be short of storage space!

Hmmm...I like the boat very much.But. What i mean is if you build a classic rib with your hull and in your style, you have both sportboat costumers and rib costumers. Build it with only 2 jockeyseats and a sofa in the rear. And you have the scorpion, revenger costumers to. You have the hull and the tubes....

Thank you for the kind comments everyone - the diesel boat will be totally finished soon - we were at the Devon County show for 3 days last week and we had a lot of interest - do you think it might have a connection between Diesels and farmers

There were also a few people from the Exe, and they have quite shallow water up there, so a jet drive would be a big advantage!
