RIB arrives UK

The 850 arrived for start of fitting out today, posted on my FB pages here Facebook

and a single one on forum. The chines on this 850 hull look like it will perform well and it is very well built. Now for all the electronics, teak deck, consul, engine etc etc.

Think I finally ordered it in November after a build start October. Great build and kept to time scales. The only delay was the container ship waiting a berth in Cape Town.

Teak guy in factory today to finalise measurements and Boat Covers also instructed today.
Consul has been laid out in advance ready to fit. Measured floor spacing for seating set up today and liferaft fitting location.
Only a few small changes as you would expect. I will post images as we get them but planning sea trials in a week now!!!

I have used sea-safe on Isle of Wight for liferaft and they have been great. Good service deserves mention

Looks very nice, what are the two vents either side of the hull for Ian?

Looks very impressive. I should imagine you'll have a smile like a kid in a candy shop the first time you take it out!

Beautiful Boat! Love the anchor locker/step setup. My cruising buddy has a Gemini Waverider 730 with an E-Tec 225 & it is a great boat, really comfortable ride. Look forward to pictures of the engine being fitted & performance figures, very very Jealous!

Cheers Robbie - the hulls appear to have a great reputation from what everyone has said.

Just after last upload I was sent some more images from today with engine loaded, teak deck down, some internal units, Aframe with additions of large detachable flag staffs, trin lens beneath all round white and other LED Navs.

Sea trials planned for late next week
