Err no I don't. The Assault is a shallow V hull, however the Attaque is a completely different hull and in a completely different league. Its been around for a very long time and many are still doing sterling work. We have one in the dive club still going strong after 20 years.

Agreed, something like this should fit the budget and offer more room than a Searider 5.4m.

Attaque

[QUOTE=Pete7;210544] Err no I don't. The Assault is a shallow V hull, however the Attaque is a completely different hull and in a completely different league. Its been around for a very long time and many are still doing sterling work. We have one in the dive club still going strong after 20 years.

Having owned a humber attaque for 1 season (2nd boat) i base my comments on experience as well! and for me the attaque was not up to the job in a rough sea, very slammy compared to a tornado of similar size, in fact the tornado was smaller (4.8) the attaque was 5m, i kept the tornado for 3 seasons and sold the attaque, the attaque hull is not in my view a deep vee so sorry i have to disagree.

Not saying that the attaque hull is no good mind you! i know that humber have based a lot of their hulls around this design, originally called the apple for some reason? the Atlantis was based on this hull too, just preferred the tornado though in the rough.

My first RIB was a Humber Attaque. Used it once and decided it had to go . . .
