Just what I've researched from the net. They make tunnel hulled fully inflatables both round nose (surfcats) and fiberglass notice (in the style of zapcats).

I don't think they appreciated Pascoe's style of humour - there should be a warning on the entry forms.

That's a surprise... these are the guys who's new RIB was wrecked by a DHL van on the way to RIBex - so they spent the fuel budget on champagne and strawberries instead and held a 'wake' for the dead RIB!

Thank you for all your help

I guess this is a new company and I was wondering if any of you had seen the range. Looking at the web site and being a relative novice on hulls they look the same as the Ballistic ranges ? Is this correct ? I was also curious to know if any are afloat to see on the south coast. In respect of DHL lorry taking out their Rib I hope they called the police ............................

Again thank you all for your help

I don't think anyone would be saying that they'd smoothed the ride if they were the same as Ballistics! Fast they maybe but they are certainly not smooth.

Hi there I was looking only at the Hull design and having a friend who owned a Ballsitic they appear to be one and the same however I am sure many of you will now correct me in this assumption. There web site images appear to show a very stylish craft which we are keen to see in the flesh and trial.
You are Right the Ballistic whilst been a very very harsh ride are great boats but not for my wife she wants something akin to A BMW 5 0r 7 series in looks and comfort and style.

I had a chat with them and they claim to have designed and built the hull themselves - the boat they had is the development hull, and I believe there will be alterations to the final boat.
