New Build 7.8-8m Tour RIB
Hey Guys & Gals
Looking to have a custom built 7.8-8m RIB built for 1-hr cruise ship tour use and slightly longer charters.
Would like to seat 11 passengers + skipper if possible, using a bench in the back, small console with t-top, and 8 pods in front.
Ideally a single 250hp 4-stroke would power it.
This is in the Caribbean and does not have to be USCG certified but has to be safe.
Any thoughts on the setup?
In terms of manufacturers, I've talked with Ocean Craft Marine and Ribcraft (USA). Any difference between the two, pros and/or cons of each?
Any other recommendations in terms of manufacturers?
