How Would This Compare To A Ribeye Or Cobra??

Hi I Really Like The Look Of This Osprey And Would Seriously Consider Purchasing One The Only Thing is my budget would only allow me to fit a 225hp on it, how would it perform with that size engine,also how would you compare the osprey in terms of sea-keeping, build quality etc to the likes of a similar sized and specced cobra or ribeye thanks for your timeClick image for larger version

Certainly the best looking of the three! What size is it? Don't know about cobra but ribeye's sea keeping top class, although it does get noticeably wetter than comparable boats such as the brigs? Look at wolfrock boats

Looks like the 7.0 metre Viper Max. Should imagine looking at the hull, size and shape, it would be comparable with the Cobra

Forgot to add, I was using a 6.8 Ribcraft last year for a while with a 225 Yamaha and it performed very well indeed. Was also using the 7.8 Ribcraft with 250 and 300 engines which are superb RHIBs

The 225hp option on a 7.0 metre Osprey should prove to be a good combination - Nice looking craft

The 7m Vipermax is one of the most highly rated hulls produced. The other two are Ribs with hulls.
