Excalibur ribs

Are Excalibur ribs good, seakeeping, build quality etc?
I have seen a few of the larger Excalibur ribs, they look really good.
Does anyone here have any of the smaller models, how do they perform?

As I understand it the owner/designer is ex Redbay, and the sea keeping reflects that. I've only seen one in the flesh and it looked well finished standing on the pontoon.

I think Andew O'riodon has recently bought a 5.5m Excalibur. Not sure if he's taken delivery yet.

The membership list suggests that Cork Rib, and Goose are the only other 2 people with sub 7m excaliburs.

i had the latest of the excalibur range the r600 6mtr..........all i can say is what a boat !! did everything that could be asked and in some cases perfomed as well if not better than previous bigger boats.she was fitted with a yam 115 single seat console with 4 pods aft and a bow storage box.a very nice boat and excalibur are great to deal with

best of luck looking for your new boat
