Sarcasm aside , A Ribtec 5.3 with the right 90hp OB will do a genuine 40knts. I know this, 'coz an irritating tw@t passed me in one doing 40knts.

Tohatsu one design was a pretty quick hull. Not too sure if they did a 5m version though.

Thing is, why do you want to know about top speed? Surely the best sea keeping ability will get the fastest journey time on a normal cruise.

My jet ski will do 52kts and will go from 0 to 30kts in two seconds. And it's only 3.56m long.

Not sure if that qualifies,without discrimination it's not really a RIB. Although I agree it is quick.
