Is Black Coloured Ribs Just A Passing Fad???

Hi Guys Getting close to ordering my new rib was just looking your opinions on colour schemes i like the look of the black hypalon tubes with a red flash design what would you think of this colour selection in terms of looks and resale potential? or should i sway more with lighter coloured tubes in case black is like white cars they go in and out of fashion quite often?

Don't know about a fad, but just imagine on a hot sunny day ( when we get one).how hot these tubes will get! The words, arse and burn spring to mind...

This might help as an example. It's a newly launched Scorpion RIB, expensive and quite desirable, grey fabric tubes with teak deck. Very mart and would possibly still be desirable in a couple of years.

I used to have an all black rib. I don't think you'd have any trouble selling it on. Everything did used to get very hot on summers days, and you'll need to make sure it's got pressure release valves fitted. Other than that, it was quite easy to keep clean - just needed a rinse to get all the salt off.

IMO Too many people worry about the Fad's.. ease of re-sale Value's ect. Infact...it motivates all sorts of Crap on hereA well designed,Ballanced,well layed out Boat well maintained, will always appeal to someone.
By all means give it some thought and research..but in the end.. Have some BALLS and get what YOU like!! Yours is the main opinion Surley!?
If you have to worry THAT much about re-sale, maybe a Rental Option may suit some better
Oh.. and Black Tubes are Great!

Or the flip side to the one sunny day we get a year the remaining cloudy partly sunny days will result in mild warm tubes which would be nice!

Forget about resale get what you want echo Maximus comment.

I wonder what the air pressure difference inside the tubes will be on a hot day if you compared a light colour against black?

That's a bit funky! Needs sharks teeth, or the Ribeye decal removing

What are those seats? Is that a fully suspended console/seating area?

It's a special A600. I have had her built to enter the round Ireland, I've made a few changes to the standard turn key ribeye package though.

1) larger fuel tanks
2) Custom shockwave ICE2 console and seating on the latest Fox suspension
3) fully plated deck to take seat and gear
4) enlarged stringers and modified transom
5) increased engine from their 115 to F150.
6) Full Raymarine gear
7) moved Nav lights etc to console mount
8) removed A-Frame to lower COG
9) added trim tabs for offshore seas
10) fuel filler relocated to bow as standard is located in Ribeye console.
11) 4 lifting points on deck and then the addition of military spec towing eyes, bow & stern

I will look to sell her on after this season.

Throughout the build I have to say Ribeye have been very flexible, extremely helpful and their quality of work has been superb. It's a very different boat to what they normal do and she should go well.

Will post photos on a separate thread when she hits the water

Hi Tom,

Considering the amount of rain we have been getting were you not tempted to go for the roof option with side curtains? I'm looking forward to hearing your views on the Shockwave system. It looks fantastic.
