Fastest RIB in the world.....

I saw 'Velocity' in Torquay marina the other day, a fairly large Ribquest with 3 x 300Hp Yam's hung off the back. It's in town for the MDL Torquay 'marina day' this weekend.

Not sure if the claim of 'fastest passenger RIB in the world' is accurate, but it will be interesting to see how it handles the 20mph westerlies forecast for the bay tomorrow.

I wonder what speed they actually operate at with a full complement of passengers.

Id be surprised if its significantly greater than a similar sized boat with a more modest all out speed.

Some good videos of it running in the flat. None in rough. Modified banana shark hull I believe

About right I've been in a 9.5m ribquest with twin 300 verardos on the Humber and clocked up 70 mph from memory

Dont think I would go on a ride in it, just sounds like an accident waiting to happen, is there really a need for a passenger rib to go that fast ? Boats can be dangerous enouth without the need for extreme speed on water.
