By the way NEVER said that Greek RIBs are cheap I always said and I will say it that all RIBs and other sea equipement that are sold in Europe are VERY expenssive.
This is why some RIB manufacturers are now building RIBs in SAmerica (look @ RI last issue) and many of the SAfrican RIB builders are getting more popular in Europe.
Furthermore, what is expenssive does not necessarily meant that is good (although the same can be said for the opposite).
Nevertheless, all RIBs (cabin or not) that are built in Europe inc Greece, Italy and the UK are HIGHLY OVER PRICED including their engines and equipment.
We should actually make a lot of noise about this and try to make RIB and oputboard and inboard motor prices come down. Is rediculous to pay through the nose for a RIB and an engine that somewhere else in the World you get for less than half the price is sold in Europe (same quality, CE marks etc).
THEY should be ashamed!!!

Picked this from the RIB EX in Athens a few months ago

This is a brosure I picked from the SACS stand in the Athens RIB EX.
Does any one know what did this super duper cabin RIB did?? I mean was it involved in a Transatlantic crossing or anything else.
By the way SACS are made in Italy and they have good reputation.

Bet it is. But what the h...l did this boat do or didn't do. It looks like it was built for some serious cruising (look at all the sponsors stikers onboard too!!) but when and where?? Will be very interesting to find out.

Manos that aint a boat built for serious sea work.

Beam to small for a beam sea will broach easy.

Engine air intakes just above the tube,look like scoops to me?.
Its as stable upside down as it is the right way up?

Imho

Good fun in the marina and ace for pulling the birds.

Fabbio Buzzi Tecno 42 Military spec

his another cabin RIB is 42 ft, beam 3.70/2.65m, hight 2.35m, draft 0.80m, weight 6200 kgs, can carry 3000 kgs.
It comes with a gear box ZF 2 speeds (IRM312) and a Trimax G Drive (up to 2 x420) or Trimax 2200 for power.
Engines 2 Yanmar x 420 or 2 Cummins x 635 or 2 Ceatekx750 HP
The hull of this boat is the same with that of the Fabbio's racing offshore boats.
The seating arrangement in the bow is for soldiers to sit on and the these seats are completely sprang for comfort.
With the 750 bhp engines and fully laden the boat has a top speed of 70 knots!!!
With a smaller engine i.e. a Yanmar x 420 bhp same conditions as above can reach speeds of up to 50 knots.
The price tag DON't ASK you can't afford it!! LOLOL
However, in my opinion this is not a rib!! Look at the weight for goodness sake 6.2 tonnes. This is a SHIP!!!

Foreign Ribs

If these foreign RIBS are cheaper than UK, and so wonderful... why do we not see more (if any) on the water???????????

To be honest, have never heard of most of the makes that you are on about
