Examples of deep V ribs in NZ?

What are some model RIBs that are suitable for offshore, deep Vs? 5metres and up?


If possible available in NZ as I know a lot on here are for Euro market.


I looked at an Avon D560 but I read remarks on here its not a deep V? It has twin 50hps. Which I prefer to single enginge.

thanks guys good choices so far. gemini and lancer. also naiad.


also smuggler at high end i cant afford along with intereceptor which is used for the americas cup.


the Avon is in very good nice, was used as a tender on super yacht. has 2 jockey seatts amd 2x yamaha 50hp four strokes.


But I believe it is the 18 degree hull and I want to get out where the water turns nasty sometimes. Im a bit upset as its ideal otherwise.

Yeah. At first i think people were worried they were a cheap asian brand as we get a lot of those here.


Ive seen a lot of 18-20ft lancers, they are 23 and 27 degree deadrises.

We have another brand, well 2, but very similar called Naiad, they are made in NZ down the very bottom for the rough Southern Ocean. The outer skin, is just that, a skin, to protect the tubes, then an inner tube like any RIB.

They are used by the coast guard etc. Most divers/fisherman go for the smaller 4m ally models as they feel very safe and are easy to tow, but they get up to 12m. They also used by the Police and a lot of tourism companies (you prob wont see another brand commercially here, Lancer is used for sailing support boats though).

Yes. Depending on specification I think they can be different weights of hypalon.

Thanks again Richard. Wavebreak is the other double skin RIB designer, I think the owner worked at Naiad, dont quote me. But Naiad is in nelson and wavebreak in picton, coincidense?
