The Bananashark console looks too narrow for a 7.5m Vipermax - it would be lost in there.

It is slimmer than some at only 840 mm wide, it was designed for our 6m RIB and allows some room to pass by without going over the tubes. This is always a compromise with getting the maximum width to stand behind and still leave room to get to the bow - very much a personal choice!

If you mean us then we don't I'm sorry, but we do have a selection of moulds, it would be a bit slim if you want something built in, although we could put a plant in the mould to give a recess for a seat if that's what you're looking for?

If you really want a seat in the front of a console then the Parker is a really nice piece of design and very comfy too. Winsor bros might also do a bespoke seat for you as well.

console

Thanks for all the suggestions, the parker console is closest to what I want but at 1100mm wide its not going to allow enough space to pass at the side.
The console I want has to have a forward seat for two albeit slim teenagers.

I think you'll struggle to get a suicide seat for two slim teenagers even in 1000mm?

Personally, I think that the Osprey Discovery consol is by far and away the best looking. I realise that it does have it's limitations in terms of protection. I'd rather put a decent pair of wrap-around sunglasses on and a jacket than have a 'dog house' of a consol.
So, what colours are you going for this time? My samples arrived this am.
