Thatís not a rib, itís a Dutch barge with a grey fender and too many engines

Seriously though, with that internal volume and a high transom it will struggle to clear water after a stuff Des

With 53 knots and a cabin you can have your cake and eat it.

Like the Rupert, another awesome Rib with a soppy name. Does make you wonder just how much benefit those tubes are with so much freeboard.

Probally a stupid question but.....

With a four outboard configuration, why are the two exterior engines mounted higher than the center pair?

Sits back and waits for techies to reply

yeah alice, i cant see how effective those tubes would be with them being so far from the water!!! isnt it therefore just a good offshore rigid boat, rather than true rib?

Yeh.

Cos the hull is a V shape and the engines will be submerged to about the same level.

Its a big grey box with tubes attached. Its not really a rib is it?

Plus why have a RIB that big??? The benefits you get from a RIB tend to become a gimick the bigger you get.

A big boat coming in to contact with a solid object will burst the tubes just becase of the sheer weight and forces involved!

I can only think the tubes act as spray rails.
