As has already been said, that Redbay comes with a proper cabin, not just a big console that you can sleep in!! If I remember correctly that RIB although second hand has seen very little use and is only 2 or 3 months old. Finally it's a diesel and aren't diesels supposed to be generally more expensive than outboards (ie: engine rigging, etc.)

One thing I would like to see is a Scorp with a proper cabin (ie: roof over your head - I suppose enclosed wheelhouse is probably a better description) They make beautiful boats, I bet it would look stunning. I remember seeing a grey Scorpion before with a roof, but not fully enclosed, kinda like a Protector. Would be nice to see what they'd come up with.

I certainly wouldn't be buying that for 80k to 120k

You could get a very nice Botnia Targa for that

No true - but you could get a fairly nice 27 for 80k or a 30 maybe 33 for 120k

Don't forget that the Ribtec and the new shearwater are a cabin RIBs.

The Redbay's and the like are wheelhouse RIBS which are a differrent beast all together.
