Info needed for WILDCAT RIBs

Does any one has any info for WILDCAT RIBs. They were racing in the TransAgulhas F3 Challenge (didn't do all that well) and also found their web site

www.wildcatribs.com

However, I have never seen one around (in Europe that is although in the site it says 'Wildcat boats have proven themselves overseas and locally.').

I am interested on their 9 mtr boat (may be with a forward cabin conversion) and wondering if anyone knows anything more about them.

Just a thought, does anyone build a rib that at some point you are not thinking of buying?

Thanks a lot for the info.
I'm just interested about that boat as it may be sold at a lower price than those in Europe.
Since I'm after a cabin RIB may be (if this is at the right price and they do it with a cabin) will have a look at it.
Still looking for a cabin RIB though

Err no actually, 500 for a single console even Ribtec don't charge that !

Add VAT and customs costs and you are probably at the same price for a UK built boat, which hopefully won't have wavy reinforcement like the photo of the Falcon.

Sorry but not convinced.

And I thought I was the only person who thought the falcon laminating looked dreadful!, well, me and Giggler.
If they can't be bothered to get a simple thing like the stiffening straight, what else isn't right? it also looked like it was made entirely out of CSM! nice!

Well had a better look on these boats and I don't think I'll be considering them. Too narrow for my liking (the 9.00 mtrs that is). However, I still think that they are cheap.
Re the console for 500 quid may be is a typing error??? (found one or two my self in their SAfrican web page)
Any way this is the end of the wild cat boat.
