New Boat - Sorcerer

Looking at buying a Sorcerer 660 (maybe a 750). Like the look and spec of the boat - does anyone here have any coments on these?

Excellent hull design!

It will excell in lumpy conditions, marvelously pitch stable.

Thanks for info - nice to hear others say good things. Been messing about in RIB's for years and thought it about time to get one. This looked decent for a family and handling that Solent chop is a definate bonus for those beach returns when the sea breeze has set in. Certainly looked carefully built. All going well pictures to follow early next year!

sportsboat and rib mag did a report about 2 months ago, i know kathy at sorcerer has a copy, could be worth a read...

i know their previous demo rib was an early version and some of their mouldings have changed a little, they are very willing to customise which is nice and allows you to dial in your creature comforts or even strip em out if thats ur thing...

i do think they should update the website mind with some new pics and news of new boats, i think it could promote theyre steady growth better

Good Luck
