I have ordered 540 OM but delivery will be March next year.
I'm from Poland so took a risk and not try boat before buy it.
But I'm HONDA fan. Even I know that HONDA only gives "a name" for them.
I own HONWAVE T38IE2 plus HONDA BF20 and it sets allow us to have wonderful time in Greece.
I hope that another set branded as HONDA (HONDA OM 540 and HONDA BF100) allow us to have longer trips in Greece. I will test set with my family (2+3) on the next vacation (8 weeks) so will gave a feedback. But I'm not credible person. I'm SIB-man. This is my first RIB.
It is the only one RIB which allow me to follow new rules in Poland according GVW.
Based on my car GVW whole set (boat, engine, petrol, equipment, trailer) cannot exceed 950 kg. And OM540 is the only one.
I do really appreciate how Steve works, response for all emails, reasonable answers so I do not hesitate to buy from UK dealer. And UK dealer is the only one now who can offer so family friendly setup (DL version - 5 bakists/lockers, family console)
If I be UK citizen (do not worry I will stay in Poland or move to Greece
) I prefer to test OM 540 DL in nature. This is the best opportunity to select a boat.
Each people have different needs and you can not only base on internet opinions.
