Yes indeed.

Grey its is then. Very nice!! Build and layup looks great. Will they be built also for commercial usage now ? If i recall they were only for leisure etc and specfically not for heavy use. It would be nice to see a british design and build available for commercial use

They have always been available for commercial use and are perfect for heavy uses such as diving and racing. The only hindrance for commercial users was that they were only rated to RCA cat C but I believe that this may be changing..

Couple of gratuitous pics of racing and commercial vipermaxes. Check out the history section on the Osprey Owners' Association for more info about the racing pedigree

Osprey do have the Falcon range which is even more heavy duty, the 9.5m model of which sold very well in the late 90s early 2000s

Were used and still used for offshore racing. Osprey's were also used for dive boats, rescue boats and commercial work. So think they've proved themselves over the years. Strong hull, well built with a soft ride

Matt knows that VMs are built like brick sh*thouses, 'coz he's been all over Chris'. Well ah, maybe not recently.

I love this one, perhaps it would look even better with grey gel? We almost talked about selling ITR as a bare hull then swapping the engine and electronics all over to this one... The flash of red with carbon tubes is just perfect!
