Hi all, I love this RIB or whatever it is

Hi all, I'm new here. I'm planning to buy a RIB and I want your impressions...
I wanted you to see this RIB boat, it's named Cabin56 (you can find it on google), it's a nice designed trailerable semicabin RIB boat with only 5,60 mt... and it would be useful for me and my family, it also has a significant cabin with a bed for 2!!
I simply love it... What do you think 'bout?

You wouldn't have something to do with manufacturing it would you?

From daFox:

"You're right and I have to apologize.
I've made the website for a friend of mine who made the Cabin56. We are old friends and I do not get money for this. I know the kind of post I wrote is considered spam, but I tried to show everybody a thing I like very much. Sorry."


It's second degree spam, but aggravated by pretending to be a disinterested third party.

Actually .. now that I look at it again .. the hull looks pretty much like my little Tornado .. which has performance that belies its size IMO

Nice guitar intro... bring on summer!

Speaking of cabin ribs, here's Zodiac's N-Zo 700. This time with pan-pipes! I know which one I'd have!

Hi guys, I didn't mean to spam and I was not trying to fool anybody. I'm sorry.
I meant to show you this RIB only because I think it is fantastic!
I really wanted to know what you think about it. Isn't it a good idea with a good realization?
Don't you think it could be very useful in certain circumstances to have a little cabin where you can recover from cold and wind?

Do you really make little cabin ribs like this in UK?
I thought there was not a trailerable semi-cabin RIB model since now.
It's only 5,60mt and it's very light, so you can carry it with a little trail. I think it is lovely.

Is there a similar rib made in UK? A cabin rib you can put in water in 5 minutes?
I'd really like to see it...
Can you post some link please?

Don't think they are exactly targeting the same market though - 5.6m v's 7m and 40HP v's as much as you can afford!

I don't think anyone makes an "off the shelf" cabin rib in the UK which will go (legally) on a 750 kg unbraked trailer - like your friend claims his can. I also don't know of anyone producing cabins on boats as small as 5.6m - the trend in the UK leisure market when offering "luxury" like a cabin seems to be towards bigger, more expensive boats with bigger more expensive engines which will burn more fuel.

I'm not sure how "serious" / "off-shore" your friends hull design is (see comments further up about medium-V), and perhaps this has had to be compromised to keep the weight and power requirements down - but actually the average leisure boat owner only goes out in nice weather anyway so it may not be an issue. There is a market for a simple "overnight" cruising RIB around the 6m mark - which is clear every time the cabin / tent / pilot house / shelter thread comes up on here. I'm surprised nobody at the lower cost end of the market has come up with something.

do we know the price of them boats, the zodiac looks not bad, we've done smaller boats with cuddy/consoles but guy's over here wanting that type of boat want to do longer range stuff so we tend to put them on bigger more seaworthy offshore boats, also cramming all that on a smaller boat is not profitable from a manufacter's point of view, i had a console/cuddy mould a while back but only did a few, you have to be mindful of the weight that far forward

Despite a 'spammy start' an interesting idea.....

I can see a market for this type of boat in the UK with a few tweaks. Like at least 90hp,a deeper V and better 'look' from the design of the cabin - I'm thinking mini scorpion type.- similar to Biffs boat/cabin.......

Just look at all the boats with small cuddys 50 hp & with no tubees.

Oh - The N-zo is just a grim boat to be called a RIB - super heavy , slow and unresponsive for a 7.5m RIB even with 225hp on the back. Am sure it will appeal to those who would have bought a sea-ray type though...

and I have seen 8.6m / 2 ton cabin ribs towed and launched easier than 4m ribs in the UK ... its not just about size and weight for it to be easy - more set up and ability......

I can imagine the design brief - 'make it boxy, ugly and so the helm cant see out , oh and make sure there is a good chance the windows pop in when you stuff it in big wave' - design brief nailed !!!!!!!!
