In Brittany there are lots of Narwhal RIBs. They're reputed as being good basic dive ribs that are good value for money. However, I prefered buying an English RIB.

All thier models are not equal and in my opinion only the Neo Fisher and the HD (Heavy Duty) ones are worth looking at. The tubes are made of PVC. A Humber 5.3 weighs the same as a Narwhal 6.5, the difference is not in the tubes !

For a 4.5m dive rib i'd sooner buy an XS than a Narwhal.

Tusk, Tusk gArfie try and behave will you!

Narwals to the best of my are not first class boats but still functional. They should be left on the shelf unles reasonably priced
