Massive RIB on M4

Spotted a stunning looking RIB earlier that looked huge - I think it may have been a Revenger 34 - sort of blue and grey scheme - teak decks and inboard diesel. Heading West on M4 past Swansea - was being towed by a Land Rover of course but didn't really catch what sort - it was either a 130 Ambulance type or a Forward Contro, - it was big and greenish anyway!!!

Anyone have any ideas who's it is or where it's heading???
