K4 plus & Atlantis KR7 (some ? about this Rib)

http://www.atlantisribs.com/ (yes, i did a search first)

I just got information on this rib in my mailbox. For me it looks VERY good, do you have any comments on it?

The price is 13995Ģ for S, and 19995Ģ for RS. Ok, much money but in Revenger country. It has stepped hull and some race history on it, but I saw deadrise 19 degrees and transom rise 13. Is that normal? Doesnīt most of the rib have 24 degrees deadrise?

Is everything built in UK?

In my brochure the length is 7,12 beam 2,46 and weight 800kg (S or RS?)
Revenger 23/715 has length 7,15 beam 2,46 and weight 740 kg.

Speed with opti 150 is 64-66 mph! Sounds possible?

deadrise

deadrise seems very shallow. This means the boat has a hull which is flatter than many .

A flatter hull means it will plane easier, can be driven by less horsepwer. However I am under the impression that it will not be as good a seaboat as some of the deeper v hulls.

best of luck.

You are right; the boat was launched at Ribex and is proving to be a huge success. It has a unique hull design which is stepped and is incredibly efficient. It is absolutely true that this boat will do 66 with a 150hp on the back. I have been out on the boat and it is quite fantastic, the demo boat had a 125 on the back just to prove it! Every part of the boat is custom built in Southampton; you can choose seating and console layout, tube colour, upholstery and so forth. This boat really does show up some of the big players. The people who build the boats are so passionate and helpful.
I really recommend you book a demo, the ride is unbeatable - to be honest it's far better than some of the big players which require twice the horsepower to drive them.

I found out today that the boat is category B (most are CE cat C) which is unusual and certainly disproves any question marks as to its sea keeping abilities.

I shall be placing an order early next year

Yeah yeah its the same hull, there's magazine reviews of the boat coming 1st in every race but one!! - that was when the engine blew up!

I've seen the Ads on Boats and Outboards.

I too would be interested in any opinions about the build and design.

Looks quite an attractive price for a self build project of a RIB of this size.

Yes, but the price for a complete boat is 13995 or 19995 (S/RS). If I remember it was some ad at boatsandoutboards with less than that! The RS is with everything you need.

I have some question about the engine size but then I will send them a question at a packageprice with boat, engine and trailer. Then itīs more easy to compare to the other.

What was proven by the demo boat having a 125 on the back?

You need to speak to adam younger on here, he designed it. I haven't ever been in one but have seen adam's own hull zooming along and it just seems to "float" across the water! It has tapered steps to improve cornering. It would be high on my list if I could afford one!
