Carson 420

Morning all,

Thought i would share the pics of the new Carson 420 which has been built for our stand at this years Seawork. We have been out undertaking seatrials and are very impressed with the performance and general seakeeping capabilities of the hull.

If anyone is planning on heading along to the show pop past our stand (A94) and meet the team. We have some exciting new large hulls coming up and the designs will be on display.

Colin

RIBase
I like small ribs and I like the look of that rib, however if you use your rib for scubadiving/ freediving it might not be the easiest of ribs to re enter given that the tubes sit high of the water and are quite large.

Just my thoughts

The first thing people post when someone returns etc is: Top speed? Cruising speed?
Weight? (That size of RIB lends it's self to an unbraked trailer)
Cost? (Assume is hypalon toobed)

RCD rating or are you just commercial?

Is the 50 max HP or optimal or both?

Most of that is on their website. Welded PU tubes (bolted on), 120kg bare boat, 50hp max...

Top speeds are always exaggerated, if you want to find out the truth take your 8100 cheque book, to sea work (and another cheque for the engine and trailer!)

No MOST of it isn't! SOME of it is.
Yes a weight is (presumably bare hull no console).
Yes a max HP is - but many RIB makers will suggest a HP range and often suggest a normal HP in that range rather than the max.

But the website disagrees with you on tubes
And doesn't mention speeds or RCD.

Yes the speed may well be over claimed... ...but it is by far the first thing everyone asks on here for refurbs.

I stand corrected PU is an optional extra.

you'll find very few manuf. willing to put an exact figure on it, and probably with good reason.

Thanks for the replies guys, to answer a couple of questions:

The collars on the demo boat are 16" diameter but these of course can of be supplied at any size required should 16" be too large.

50HP is the max rating for the hull, the boat has been commonly supplied in the past with 25-40HP units.

The boat is supplied with RCD rating 'C' with max 6 people and 50HP outboard.

As for speed we will get back to you as our handheld GPS has a fault so will see next time were out, safe to say its fast enough.

We will update the website with useful HP range as i understand how this information would be of help to people looking, thanks for the feedback

Yesterday we had a very good 1st day at Seawork International 2016 in Southampton. Lots of interest and positive feedback on our new larger Interceptor Class RIBs as well as the rest of our range. We're on stand A94 with the baby of the range, a Carson 420 fitted with a 50hp Mercury. Over the years many of this model have been used to replace some of our professional customer's (marine police, etc.) larger other brands due to the 420's exceptional roominess and all round performance. For those that can get there it's a great show with lots to see for rib users (Seawork International - Home).
