A big thank you for all the best wishes, comments and PM’s it is appreciated.
Well I think its fair to say we have some big shoes to fill. Since the sad passing of Roy Bishop, Osprey seems to have been in a bit of a ‘no mans land’ until recently. Thanks to the efforts of Mike and Chris the brand has continued albeit through some difficult economic times.
It is with some apprehension we have picked up the gauntlet and have taken on the UK dealership for Osprey RIBs. As mentioned Mike Whitham will still be laying up the hulls but from then on the hand built RIBs will be project managed by us and completed at our premises next to the Solent.
As most of you know we already have a 7m Osprey Vipermax for demonstrations and it will soon be joined by a new 6.5m Osprey Vipermax. A build thread will be started shortly. Both will be available for viewing and demonstrations in Lymington and hopefully around the UK in the near future.
Alex and I are honoured to be involved with this iconic brand and look forward to building some exciting RIBs in the coming months. If anyone has any good ideas of what they would like to see in a new RIB or wants to just talk RIBs my number is 07793 823824.
PS no flooding hulls
