New 8.5m surface drive sports RIB
Are you interested in premium sports RIBs combining high performance with efficiency? This may be for you. I am talking to a BMF-affliated naval architect specialising in high performance RIBs, with a view to starting low-number production of a new 8.5m sports RIB using surface drive and a stepped deep-vee hull. The next step is a detailed concept design but first I would like to hear the views of RIB enthusiasts to gain a feel for market demand. The boat would be aimed at the premium end of the market. If you have a serious interest in this kind of RIB, please email me and I will send a copy of a short market survey asking for your opinions on performance, handling and design features.
I will store information supplied in compliance with the Data Protection Act 1998. Any (optional) personal data you supply will not be passed on to any third party for any purpose, and details on design features will only be passed on to the designer employed by me to refine the design. John Kennett, RIBnet’s administrator, has kindly given me permission to post this message on the forum.
I look forward to hearing from you.
