yeah I was out today trialling a new XS for one of our customers. Really is quite a good boat.....Lovely Hull designed by the inimitable Steve Baker

I saw the two ribs coming back to Southampton. they both live on the Itchen. One was a Ocean Cabin rib and the other a Pascoe SR9 with twing Opi 200 XS's. I was looking at this in the yard and I think it's the best rigged Rib I've seen.

I noticed the odd liner or three out there today also

I am unsure as to who actually makes the XS boats but I don't hink that SB or Trio mouldings have been involved in the project.

The phantom rib is made by Trio Moulding (who own the rights) and is very well built.

there is something nice about the XS it's definitely built with experiene but it's a functional boat as opposed to an elegant one

Ok got you,
thats what I like about the XS range, I tend to like more offshore / commercial looking RIBs, although I can't stretch to an XS at the moment. There is alot of secrecy surrounding the builder of the XS boats, although it looks like Richard B knows, Ribnets resident gossip
