Low Down On Rib-x 575

Any information regarding the Rib-X 575 would be appreciated...

Has anyone got one?

How do they rate it.....

Having seen one at Ribex on Friday, and about to buy one, all comments appreciated.....

Go for the 640SR (I assume that the RIB-X 575 you say is the FALCON 575SR).
Bigger/longer boat very easy to handle and is like a dream in the water We've got 6 of those

Got a 640 great boat, i would go for the bigger boat if you have room but if not i am sure the 575 is also a very good boat. worth reading the review in Rib Int..

The 575 is based on the 640's hull so should perform in a very similar way.
Too expensive if you ask me and only comes with a small fuel tank.

Gazza,
I've got a 6.4 Rib-X with a 200 on the back - goes like a rocket, very pleased in all aspects handling in rough seas etc. I believe the hulls are very similar. - Go for it.
