Not a jet powered RIB, but a very similar hull to the BWM I believe.

thanx for pic

Yes,

I have had a look at the Parker ribs too.
I have a pretty decent, and growing collection of cabinribs pics from my endless google searches on the subject.
The nicest looking boats that have the cabin layout and design I want tend to be about two meters longer than I want.
Cabin RIB design seems to s starts to click at about 9-10 m and I would love to keep it around 7-8m.
I guess I am looking for a boat that does not quite exist...yet..

pic of 8.4 stern to bow

I forgot I had this pic, this is 8.4, It is diesel outdrive, soft top cabin Ie deteachable roof, a lot of rear deck space goes with the diesel model, to get to the front deck, you must walk on the sponsons, in front is deck space with anchor locker, 2 types of locker are available a small one and one which goes right up to the height of the nose, these Redbays are all custom built, triple D fendering, baskets for fenders ,4 or 6 pod seats
there is also a new version of the cabin available with a hard roof, lots of steel work for support.

Free B?

Very, very interesting...have not seen these...
It looks a bit like the "Free B" RIB on the Redbay website? Correct?
But then again that had a small cabin in the bow area..
Not too keen on the canopy bits between
window and roof...but I am sure it wil make loads of sense on the better days.
Yes, very interesting indeed, thanx again for posting stuff..all the more reasons to make the Dublin boat show I guess..

Hi Richard . You must be doing ok in Polish otherwise you would have suggested to look at www.parkerribs.com The all English language site for Parker Ribs.

in the gallery checkout the Parker 800 Rapier range. The two cabin ribs with the end of the tubes black are Jet powered. Hamilton Jet powered linked to the new Mercruiser 4.2 L 300 diesel

as you are from Sweden you may find this type of "cabin"
of interest. It has become quite a popular concept in Sweden for the guys to ferry the ladies from the islands to parties/dinners on the mainland . Stops the hair getting messy and keeps the dresses dry. No need for a dry suit.
It is also fitted with a removable T top roof system

checkout www.stockholmribcenter.com

Cabin RIB development...or it's poor cousin..;)

Maybe time to change the name of the thread and add it to that infamous Cabin RIB development.thread:
http://rib.net/forum/showthread.php?...ighlight=cabin

Anyway, here's the "FreeB" Redbay Rib I meant for convinience:
http://www.redbayboats.com/ribs/freeb74.htm
Sure looks similar to what Gavin posted..
I have never been able to figure out how the deck in the bow area is used in the design..
Is there a little berth under there?

Oh and as for that tent-like cabin for the ladies..not too sure..;-)
Actually probably best to leave that one alone.without comments..;-)
..and canopies don't go together too well with heaters anyway.

RIB history

Speaking of cabin RIBS..or RIBS generally..
Why is it that many of the serious RIBs are of U.K. origin?

What's the history here?
Just curious about ribbing history and I am sure someone has pointers and
I am sure there is a webplace to study..?
Even the serious RIB builders up here still get the inflatable bits from the U.K.

BTW: The http://www.stockholmribcenter.com/
reference that Andre kindly submitted (had not heard of them) sell what looks like Parker Ribs under the name C-Rib.. and Cougar.

There is only a few serious local places up here...all with semi-military history if anyone gives a hoot:
http://www.rupertmarine.com/eng/index.htm
and in Finland:http://www.boomeranger.fi/
Very large and very serious boats...
and there is obviously
http://www.ocke.se/
but he does other things than RIbs to say the least...
This one is in Swedish only unfortunately
but has some interesting plans for the future, albeit more yachting style:
http://www.ribunlimited.se/dokument/niohundra.htm
Used to hold the worldspeed record for cat ribs a while ago I believe..
http://www.ribunlimited.se/dokument/...rojekt_nor.htm
These are not really Ribs..http://www.anytec.se/eng/arbetsbatar.shtm
Just adding another tidbit at the end..googled this by accident..if anyone thinx jumping the waves is not high enough
http://www.flyingboat.org/html/picturegallery.html
ah well ,over an out....must get a life..;-)
