highfield ribs

Anyone have experience with highfield ribs? They appear to be a chinese clone of the aussie swift brand. Im interested in a 7.5 meter that they classify as commercial/off shore patrol. Any opinions on build quality or information on this company? I have found that some of the piranah boats are made in china also and have very favorable reviews. Does anyone know of these chinese companies that produce these ribs.

Thanks

Most recreational alum hull ribs and ribs up to 5.80 ntr Defender X Pro Type are made in Asia, but seems the larger ones don't, probably Australian made.

Happy Boating

Plenty of stuff on here regarding Chinese RIBs, just do a search. If you find anything complementary please repost it, as I must have missed it first time around
