We have a Delta Dash as our dive club RIB. It seems like a well built craft but I personally don't like it too much. It gives a very harsh slammy ride especially in rough conditions.

If you want a boat that will go through anything then Delta is the one.

As tue suggests they have a tendency to slam and provide quite a wet ride. My first boat was a Delta 6x , which as it happens, is up for sale on RibNet at the moment. Via a couple of sales the boat has ended up with some friends who now want to sell it.

The best thing is to go out in 5.5 or even check out the 6m boat and see what you think.
