Hi Crazyhorse

Yes you are nearly correct . At RIBEX 2002 on the hard was the
9 mtr version (the same shape hull) and was sold in the UK as the Rapier 900 This rib has got the MCA and I understand it is taking people around the Isle of Skye

As for my rib which you can see in the RIB GALLERY it is the Parker 630 fitted with the Mercruiser 1.7 TDI engine . I imported this rib into the UK in August having towed it from Poland after my holidays .
This engine is just great and has had a very good write up in the technical press As it happens this engine was also made in Poland .

Andre,

I looked at the Parker and it indeed has a good right up for its Sea keeping abilities.

What drive/leg have you got and are Mercruisers any cheaper over there in poland after vat and import duty are added?

My Parker 630 callsign Seahawk has a Alpha 1 leg with the Mercruiser 1.7 Diesel . This is a standard package.
Parker Poland is not only the manufacturer of the ribs but also the importer / distributor of Mercury/Mercruiser i n Poland so as you can appreciate they only promote and supply that particular range of motors.

Andre

I will send you a PM

Some more Cabin RIBs

This is a links for Greek made cabin RIBs 10 mtrs+.
The MOSTRO range looks but haveing been on one (10 mtrs cabin) the finish product is of not that good quality.
The cabin inside needs a lot of doing to it after you buy the boat and the construction looks a bit rush rush job.

Italian Builder

SOLEMAR ITALIA the boat look good. Have been on one in a show room (10 mtr cabin RIB) looks FANTASTIC!!!.
Lots of room and many facilities. This one ven had a dishwasher and a washing machine, not to mention the air con, water maker and the freezer and ice maker (crazy horse you will need a small water maker) etc etc but is Italian made. Never had a test published in any of the mags I read. So its sea keeping capabilites unknown.

Have a look at the solemar site

Nice looking boat had also a look @ your site. However, do they make me them in white colour or just red? and do they have another cabin configuation??
I just think (with all due respect to the builders) that the cabin maybe is OK for rescue, coastguard and military ops but not that good for cruising and lesure (I think ). Too square for my liking.
If you look @ the MOSTRO, SOLEMAR @ the SCORPION site this is what I think a cabin on cabin RIB designed for the Med should look like. Short of aero/hydrodynamic with small reinforced port holes (not large windows!!) you do not have a problem with big strong waves floding or braking the glass or in that matter the structure of the cabin etc.
Any way I think I might have to wait another year or so just to see the development of this type of boats and make my mind later about getting one.
