Yes zodiacs great hull had one before but very expensive and they are a bit 'serious', and the leisure ones are a bit too much for me.

So anyone know much about the brig 500, grand 470.......
Also willsmarine make 'willsribs'. Good value for the 5 metre one with a 90hp. Plus look really nice

I know its 100 too cheap, so brig / wolf rock can't afford to invest in marketing!

I think that "Built to a price point" is the trade term Poly.

Check a Marine Trader ?

I personally would never go for the grand or brig (nearly the same) because i know one who has brig and it is terrible in a slight breeze or some chop... The boat is good for a year or something but then it brakes because the bad tubes...
The capelli is good and would definitely go for it!

Personally, I love my Walker Bay Generation 430 (now sold as a 450 or 500). It's a 'leisure' RIB but with a fairly deep V hull. Appreciate it's not everyone's cup of tea but then neither is an SR

I infact have a willsrib 420. May I say its a brilliant little boat, simple and actually well made. Willsmarine have always been great aswell. Hence why im interested in their 5 metre as they are great looking and a great rib for me


Also Brig in my experiences are nice boats. They are good quality but they are a bit common now in devon, plus I like a bit of personality when it comes to a boat, they seem a bit 'safe'.
Thanks for all the replies.

I have seen the Wills Ribs in Kingsbridge and you are right; all the red logo's have faded to pink.

All the others have. Somebody suggested some solution which I cover the badge in before it goes in the water. Its still shiny new! All the others are basically white now though......Although I must say the trailer made by vandercraft has had a few problems with its rollers- all fixed now.
