Although not selling to the public anymore Delta has a long pedigree from the early days. Also Halmatic are in the same boat ( please excuse the pun )

I think one way of finding out which are the most poular ribs in te UK is to call manufacturers and ask them what there production capacity is and how long the delivery time. If you do that I think you'll find in the leisure market that Ribcraft and Scorpion are up there.

Commercial Avon, Halmatic, Delta and Ocean dynamics

Imported boats I think the Gemini's take some beating but I've sen a nice boat from france called a Magnum

If you want a boat that's ffff fast then Phantome Evo's and if you can afford it a MarkPascoe Limited has got to be the ultimate machine.

there are aot of other good boats out there but I think these names are about the most popular

All in all however I think the most desired RIB is a Scorpion

too many!

As you have found, the task you are about to undertake will be exhausting. Why not limit your research to the US of A, where the numbers are far, far less. For a marketing research exercise, it may be just as rewarding and far more managable. Good luck, at any rate. john
