I'd see you in something more like this

Those sticks each work 315hp and will take you and any number of guests anywhere in Europe in extreme comfort. It still might not be FAST enough for you though. She's currently in Southampton somewhere...

It does look nice, but not quite what I'm after....

Can I pick a good song name for it?

You won't be dissapointed with a Scorpion I wouldn't go for a Cougar Sheerwaters are made by one of the great desigbers of fast boats. I'd also steer away from Esoteric lumps as they are tempremental and require more attention than a Neurotic wife. The VW Diesel lumps look very sexy twin 250's will get you going well


Whatever you decide get Neil Holmes to teach you to drive it fast properly

If I do end up with something bigger and faster, I could definitely benefit from some further training....

Have you had a look at Arctic Blue? I've not tried them myself but they do look interesting.

Whilst it's not a RIB I think our new boat would fit in perfectly with your requirements and a fraction of the cost of a Goldfish! 34' with twin Yanmar 260hp diesels over 60 mph with regular drives, the leisure version will have a removable roof section (It stows in the engine compartment) for times when the weather isn't so good. Economy is just over 100 LPH at WOT. The new boat will be launched before Cowes in August and we will be taking orders for next year then

That does look nice. A bit heavy for a dry stack maybe? I have to say that I would only ever dry stack, it's tailor made for how I use the boat, so that would be a major consideration. But I'll put it on the list. Does anyone know anything about them?

Cookee, looks great, but not a RIB..... I'd love to see it at the launch though.

Shopping list updated:

Cougar R9 Sport
Scorpion Sting (possibly too heavy)
Humber Sports Pro 1000
Goldfish 29
Arctic Blue 37 (possibly too heavy)

Does it have to be a RIB? If you place an order after trialling the hard version it be a good excuse to do a tubed version!

If you wanted an outboard one we could fit more seating for you .............

Getting interesting, it should be quite a competition for the wad in your pocket
Personally, I'd go for the X-Craft if it came with the optional extra in picture 3
