GRAND ribs

Anyone had any experience of this make. Specifically the 470 model. Nice looking quality ribs I know they dont have the deepest hull but for my use it will be fine and they are sold by willsmarine. Advice please! Maybe sea trial soon.

Don't really know a lot about grand ribs but you should compare it to the Capelli Tempest 470 (Rubber boat, RIB) | boat24.com/uk

Longjohn has one and I've crossed the Channel with him and also been over to the Isles of Scilly. An awesome rib and probably overlooked by many...

A zodiac 500 pro is a 4.7m
Also look at Ribcraft 4.8
Better still Avon Searider 4.7

But if you want the leisure look search hard for the capelli 470
