Money no object RIB? ...

Just out of interest to see what the best RIBs are in peoples opinions - what would be your spec for a 'money no object' RIB????

Think i'd buy a Goldfish with a 600hp V10 petrol - that'd do around 80Knots

and a few bits off the extras list... Teak decks, cockpit/deck lights, raymarine C-120 12inch plotter, Shore power, fresh water kit, fridge and ice maker, electric anchor winch etc etc - all-in would probably weigh in at about 115k

Got to be one of these for me with the biggest engines they can fit.

WHY? Because it has an aluminium hull - no transom - jet drive and I will be able to go flat out in 16" of water and not have to worry - a big advantage in the Burry Estuary. Oh and I would have a removable cabin pod for longer trips with a bog and a bed!!!

It's an Ocean Dynamics by the way.

Guys you can spend what you like, but you aren't going to have any more fun than on the Rib you've already got!
