Massive and obvious design flaw. No frosted glass in the potty

"Flips the bird to targas." Is that in the same way a Subaru driver flips the bird to an Audi rs4? Ie he is still actually jealous he can't afford build quality and comfort with speed/handling.

I presume it's cheaper? If not...

V nice boat though for what it is.

Whats the indicative cost. GBP 200k? How does that compare with a Targa 33? I suspect the Targa will have similar seakeeping* and better accomodation. Don't get me wrong, I like the look of it, but should my lottery numbers come up, I'm not certain I'd choose one over a Targa or similar.

* For 90% of the potential sea states that it might operate in. The Redbay might have the edge in the remaining 10.

90% of the time its boring, its that other 10% thats exciting
Whilst I do like Redbays I'm not that keen on the Flybridge model. Now the new Corryvrekan...well

You have gotta be nuts, an ugly, un impresive rib / cabin cruiser or a Targa 33 for the same money, let me think about that for a nano second, o yeah, Targa, Targa, Targa, all day (and night) long.
AND it stops becoming a RIB the minute you put a cabin on it.

Agree, targa all day, night and even a weekend of comfort.

Stops being a rib when the tubes don't touch the water, as there is no longer any inherent stability over a normal boat at rest. you just have a long inflated fender, and some are so small they'd make no difference in rough weather.

There is also the new Paragon 31 that appears to provide just about the same performance in terms of speed but with only a single engine. I imagine that the weight savings of only one engine will make it quite good in the fuel consumption side too.
