You will probably get lots of replies with positive comments on many different makes.
I am a great supporter of Humber RIBs, they are seaworthy and durable.
Regarding engine choice and depending on use and required top speed, I would propose twin Suzuki DF175s or any single 4-stroke of 300 or more HP

RIBase
Don't know whether you're looking for commercial or pleasure but the Humber Sports Pro leisure range looks awesome

Ranger,
The new Yamaha 200s are fantastic engines, but I think they are much heavier than the Suzuki 175s, which may be a consideration.

If you are serious about a 9m RIB, then you have to experience a Parker before you part with any money.

Gotchiguy , I really like the sports pro 1000 , but it won't fit in a shipping container , because of the beam with molding its too wide . If I go for
Sports pro I will be using Deck cargo, and it will cost 8k pounds more. Humber suggested the ocean pro .

Falcon yes I'm getting new and my first rib . I will use it to go island hopping
7000 islands in the Philippines .

Ahh right well if that's the requirement then clearly you should go for the one that fits. I imagine Humber would be able to do a Sport Pro fit out with the high quality seating and consoles and tubes etc but on the Ocean Pro hull so it fitted
