Could this be the perfect RIB?

Was out and about today and saw this fantastic RIB, I took a couple of pictures but have blanked out the face of the skipper as I don't know who it is and it would not be right, but here is the boat, any views on one of these before I go and make more enquiries about them, it certainly looks the part

This rib is a Parker 900 Baltic and belongs to our ex-Distributor David Butler

The rib is a stunning piece of kit. No problems at all. The engine is the latest Cummins Mercruiser 320 HP linked to the Bravo 3 drive. Navigation equipment is the C120 from Raymarine

The Baltic hull has proven to be a great success and during the week will post pictures of our latest Parker 900 Baltic c/w twin Verado 275 and the latest Neptune console

Just looked at the .pl website and saw the same boat in the advert, certainly some interesting configurations on there. What would be the weight of a 900 with a trailer? if you could tow it that is.

The rib has a 3.12 mtr beam so for towing you need to deflate the tubes. It was towed to the UK behind a lightweight truck so no ordinary 4 x 4 can do the job
