Dive RIB for Southern California offshore

I'm still searching for the best RIB to dive Southern California Coastal and offshore waters 30 miles out. Any divers with suggestions? I'm interested in the 5-6m professional boats with the widest beam and best performance when powered with the new Yamaha 4 cycle outboards.

Thanks

Danny Howard

I would tentatively suggest you consider the Humber 5.8 Dive Pro - very popular amongst divers and delivers all you are looking for.

The 5.8 metre Ribcraft would be a good choice in your size range, and would go well with a Yamaha 100.

Or a Lencraft 5.8 M Ally Cat with a Yamaha 100 hp like our one which can be seen on www.powerboat.org

Best wishes ,

There's a typo in the link, that's why!

It should be www.nauticaintl.com

Nice boats

Following the link I saw some very very nice boats there. I wish we had the opportunity of use of diesel. Unfortunately only the professional boats are allowed to use diesel in Greece. What's the status quo in UK or USA ?
