Im looking to order a new RIB for delivery near X-mas time, i want a 6.5 ish with about 150Hp>200Hp on the back that can handle itself in a bit of a seaway (im no fairweater boater, just as well living here
) it will be going out in the rough stuff a lot & some long distance cruising too as well as just lazing around catching the ray's (hopefully) with the family, Also want a top speed around 45knts+ to give me around 32knts>35knts cruising. Been thinking about a...
Ribcraft 650 sport with 175Hp,
Ribeye 650 sport with 150Hp,
Osprey Vipermax 6.5 with 175>200Hp,
Revenger 715 with 175>200Hp,
I just dont know what to go for, they are all good boats i have been told but i have not driven any of um myself so was looking for some real-time feedback from real users ie; build quality / top speed's / best engine configerations / handling / fuel economy / residual value's,
Any input would be greatly appreciated,
