Great design

This is a great design. Be great for the disabled as well. Is this a one off or has anyone seen this type of thing before?

I wonder how comfortable it is at sea with the flattish bow hitting waves?

Is it just me or does the pic of it hanging off the forklift look like Drivers Wharf?

And I'd guess it could be a bit of a wet ride when the waves hit the front.

Something like that would be perfect for a Nordhavn or similar trawler yacht. You could carry a road legal quad bike and have transport wherever you go.

I remember seeing something like this on Tomorrows World many moons ago - can't remember if it was a RIB but they showed it rescuing someone badly injured from the water - they just floated them in.

pioneer have offered a rotomoulded version for a long time with the same sort of fold down bow. I think it can take a quad - although obviously I would rather have the nordhaven - but I would rather beach the pioneer to drive it off! you could probably fit a small crane/davit to most larger ribs/cruisers to lift a quad if you really wanted to.

If I recall correctly, Delta also made a drop bow rib a good number of years ago. However, that ebay one has a tunnel hull.
