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!

Just realised we are all missing the point - if it's fun you are after it's got to be a ZapCat - and a Ultima Can Am AND a Ducatti - all for the same money!!!

Saw a humongous offshore cabin RIB-monster in Plymouth once. Looked like a Halmatic or other Vosper product...Nelson? Privatised/personalised version.

It was for sale but at a big price

Apart from a steel-hulled icebreaker that we saw being refurbed once, that's the one
