Large Console for:
Raymarine 1x E120 ou E80 Lowrance 2x LMF

Can you help us?

Thanks a lot.


Antoine

You mean the 6.8?

Do you know the fuel tank size?

Is it possible to have more than 225 hp?

Hi Antoine
There are not many 7m RIBs that are capable of taking a single 300hp or twin 140 hp engine installation. No doubt the manufacturers who do will let you know!!! If your friend was willing to compromise on power I would suggest a Humber 7m Ocean Pro (2.6m wide version), this can be fitted with a 360ltr underfloo.r fuel tank and easily accomodates a dual width cruising console.
Maximum power quoted on their site is 225 single and 90 x2 twins, this seems rather low so I would chech wuth Humber to confirm. Hope you find the ideal boat.

hi I nearly bought a 6.8 ribcraft but was very unhappy with the space in her so made enquiries and upon close inspection of the specs it appeared to be a 6.3 with longer tubes for higher hp capability, the rest of the spec was the same or very similar.particulary the hull length. Anyhow, I didn't feel it was right.
I went fot the 7.8 with modular tubes not the ringo types as I like the spray deflection characteristics and very happy I am, the spec with ribcraft is virtually what you want within reason and your spec would I feel be easy for them to fulfil.
She is solid, heavy, goes well in the rough and frankly will probably never wear out.
There are lots on the market many are very good but I would suggest if you are keeping it for a while spend the cash and go Ribcraft. (sorry a bit biased)!!!!
regards mike
If you need more info please pm me.

mod tubes

hi, I meant sectional tubes.
basically they are more angular and the construction is different. They also look less leisure

Thanks a lot.

What is the external beam of the 7m excalibur offshore?

And about the fuel capacity?

Antoine,

I'm not sure of the external beam on the 7m but I will try to find out.
Fuel capacity is 70 gallons underfloor.
