Catamaran RIBs

Hi,

I have seen only a handful of larger (6+ meters )twin hulled RIBs around. What can anyone tell me about their qualities? I assume they would be expensive. I tried a search on the forums, but to no avail. So if it as already been discussed could you please direct me to the thread?


Cheers.

Re: rib cats

I had a 20 ft. Nautica cat and enjoyed it very much, extremely stable and fast, it porpoised a bit more than a v- hull but at rest the boat was like a rock, it pitched very little in waves. The boat also had a extremely shallow draft, you could pull it up to within a foot or two of shore, that was nice for the kids. A link to Nautica's 28 cat, a really nice boat..http://www.nauticaintl.com/New2005/B...0s721pic2a.jpg
