Grand Ribs

Does anybody have any experience or knowledge about this RIB line?? They sure are a nice looking boat and are well appointed for the price. I wonder how they drive and what they are like in big waves. Anybody have a comment? Have a look at their 22ft model... http://www.grandboats.com/slc.htm

Regards
Randy

I saw one yesterday

I saw one of these in my home port yesterday. It certainly looks striking.

The two features I noticed most were the hand rails attacked to the tubes, which I though were a pretty good idea, and the radar arch. I thought the arch was rather ugly. Give me an A-frame any day.

More of a superyacht tender than a RIB on first inspection.

Until you try to sit on the tubes or fall on them!!!

I think I like the rails attached to the floor better. More easily removed.
