If your not keen on Scorpions, then how about this. Owned by Pressman on here.

If its out of budget then how about asking Cookee to fit this out:

Nick at Sea Start has a very nice cabin moulding for one of these if you need protection.

Carson 900

Thanks Pete

The cabin mould Nick has is for the 750 that he extended to 9m.

That picture must be the old Carson 900 that the famous RUPERT of Deauville Rally fame owned!! The last i knew was a guy on the IOW bought it.

Revenger has some new models that i would have considerd if i were you, quality is top class and the boats are fast and handels the rough sea without any problems. We are uesing the 27, 29 and the 34 outboard versions for charter here in Norway and have allso had a scorpion 8,75 m that we experienced much problems with. the new models are 29 singel diesel and 31 with twin diesels and they look amasing.

Some to consider

Carbon Index IOW Cowes Harbour Master has one
Ocean
Scorpion
Ribcraft
Southboats IOW have a new one not yet hit the commercial market yet
Solent
and of course all the others best thing is to see what types of layout all the rib builders can offer you to see if it fits the Bosses requirements.
