Big Cabin Ribs

Looking at the Scorpion, Love it, thought about the Protector, scared because its a million miles away, think the Redbay is probably fab, but unconvinced with the looks.

What else is out there and what are your thoughts?

Depends how big you need the cabin.

This 7.5m Ocean is a fantastic bit of kit, I have seen it in action doing safety boat around the country, small cabin though.

Bembridge Outboards do the Shearwater based on the Ring hull, these seem to be fast and competitively priced, although again the cabin is not as big as a Protector or Scorpion

Now you got 24hr licensing, you'd need to spend some of that money on a proper cabin rib, something like an SY10.

Andre I am looking to buy, visting Scorpion on Tuesday for a sea trial. Would be interested in some info if you could forward it to me at oliver@quiltedcamel.com

As far as 24 hour drinking goes best not to get me started. Another govt. balls up that is full of unworkable and badly thought out legislation and the end result will be smaller margins and more red tape

I really like the look of the shearwater range - should be a great hull and despite having 2 berths and a bog it's still a proper RIB.

Ginger's Protector is about the nicest looking cabin Rib I've seen. Not all that cheap though.
