Joker 20 FF

Hello, i was at the ribex 2005 with my Buster from 5 mtr. from the Netherlands with Danny and when we looked at all that nice ribs i knew i should buy one. I bought a Joker 20 feet flatfloor but i still need an engine and would buy a suzuki Df 140. Some people in the Netherlands said to me that it is not so powerful ????? Who would want to help me out. And does somebody know something about the Joker 20 FF. It is my first rib. Sorry for the English.

hello, i dont know anything about joker ribs, but i can vouch for the suzuki 140hp, it is very good on fuel, and pushes my 6.3m humber ocean pro(not a light boat) to 40 knots! it has more than enough power for me, boat can take more power, but its a nice engine!

thats similar to the humber, i guess thats not including all console rigging etc, however i dont know of those ribs so couldnt say with certainty what speeds youd get, only that the humber i have has a very deep vee hull, which slows it down a little, and still achieve 40 knots

any pictures of the rib?

On the back of the Wiking 4,80m Rib I had before, there was a Honda 90 4-stroke. Nice and quiet, little fuel, just about strong enough. But after a while I missed the spirit and strength I saw with others.
And than I met people at BMC in Brugge Belgium. They say never put a 4-stroke on a RIB it is just to heavy. I know they have become lighter but I never forgot that statement.
The Suzuki's are very good in every sence, but I would go for a 2-stroke with the modern fuel-injection-systems. As there are Evinrude E-tec 150 or Mercury Optimax 150. They'll give you that acceleration you'll never forget.
But if you like to cruise at ease go for the Suzuki.

Hi Arwin,

As what concerns your JokerBoat 20 ft flatfloor the next: its a bit of an eccentric one in the family of JokerBoat. In the way of selling figures I mean. Most sold models are 470 and at this moment the 650. I have owned a 470 with Yam 60 fourstroke and a 21 ft flatfloor with a Yam 80 hp fourstroke. With the last one I achieved a speed of about 38 knots / almost 70 km/h. The flatfloors are very light and have a moderate vee hull so they donít need a lot of power. Ask the distributor Klaas and he will tell you the same! Iíve seen sailing the 20 ft during some clubmeeting days and it looked very nice. Its a CE-cat B (!...) and will hold up to 150 hp at the transom.
Itís a true thing that a big two-stroke accelarates like hell but the more youíre out the more you feel it in your purse!
So I would say: look where to make the best deal.
By the way, are you a member of the Jokerboatclub? If so, maybe we will meet some day. In spite of the brand of rib I own nowadays I'm still a member.

Louis.
