Are you sure there isn't a bit of confusion between the Ocean Pro and the Ocean Pro Offshore.

The Destroyer and Ocean Pro have a very similar internal beam and a similar deadrise. As mentioned, the Ocean has multiple spray rails whereas the Destroyer has only two but it also has a full length planing pad to increase the lift.

There is also the Extreme which is part way between the Ocean and the Offshore.

ocean pro and destroyer

the ocean pro is deffinately beamier than the destroyer, and therefore has greater load carrying capacity, it also has mroe spray rails, and makes use of chines. the vee is also deeper than the destroyer, which i would say is mroe of a medium vee, and assault shallow vee. the ocean offshore i would say is ultra deep vee, and if i could buy one, would!

Yer reckon. Which one of these pics has the greater deadrise?
Also, both of them have two angles to the 'V' of the hull, the lower section having less angle than further out. Fairly common practice.

Contributors to this column have made some constructive and correct points.

Humber do offer a large range of craft and I have to point out at the begining that, as being their commercial "arm" we are biased.

The ranges have many options in beam as well as length and this can give rise to confusion. However the options are offered to give clients the most expansive range available in the European market.

It would be so easy and cheaper for Humber to produce a couple of models with a couple of ranges. In fairness they have identified that clients have so many changing requirements and their policy has always been client focused.

It is thus essential that you make clear your requirements and then if at all possible try a couple of vessels. The company understands that the the disparity between to a destroyer and an ocean pro or even an offshore is hard to define for some. Ask and try and answers will abound.

To make things a bit easier it is planned that Quinquari North (Scotland) and Quinquari South ( Wales/Southwest) will shortly have a number of the smaller hulls ( 6-8m) for customers to view and try. This to make things more regional and convenient.

Further the commercial Quinquari fit out will be possible for smaller pleasure vessels in the near future.

Cheers

John
