Too farforward

I agree, sitting that far forward would give an awful ride in a chop/swell. Plus a n under deck area for v berth would be great if moved further back

I got this one built 18 months ago which sounds like what is required.

earlier in the posts it was suggested it would need to be a min of 7.5m which is what we originally thought until we saw the amount of deck space you get when you opt for outboard rather than diesel sterndrive.

This is 6.5 with four pods inside but 20K wont look at it unless you deduct trailer, engine and electronics!!!

Is that intended as a dive boat - (looks like a cylinder rack with lots of open space)? . In which case will normally have lots of weight further back and with people sitting on the tubes isn't really set up for unpleasant journeys.

The obvious question I would have though - is why would you pick this boat (untried configuration with the balance risks that biffer highlighted) and costs over 20k when Willk tells us that you can go to Redbay and get a proven boat/cabin combo of the same concept (and similar lack of bling appeal) for less than 20k.

Outhill sell wheelhouses - so I guess you can take any 'cheap rib' and stick one on. It might ? even be possible to squeeze it under 20k with engine if you skimp on the boat and aren't looking for it to be fast. But would your client rather have a poorer boat (say less respected hull, or shorter length) with a shelter squeezed on top to fulfill his spec, or sacrifice the roof and get a hull which gives a more comfortable, drier ride anyway?

Yep

I believe so.

We have used the Outhill wheelhouse before and that is an option, but the Redbay Fastfisher RIB also looks promising - just waiting to get prices back from them.

Hands-up time for me here - I'm guessing this one based on retail cost of 32/4k incl. for a 6.5m Open c/w lekkie, engine & trailer.

Yes, considerable lack of Bling Appeal

Sorry for the late entry - our new Aquaflyte Cabin 7m won't be far off that as a bare boat with a lowish spec - the hull has been redesigned and the cabin will have standing headroom unlike the old model. I also know there are a couple of secondhand ones around at the moment not far off that sort of price.
