Cheers Tim, yes it was alongside 785 yesterday- the 785 is flater and does not have bow rise and has a completly different hull, The V on 850 runs to the stern and has the chines throughout the length and also the solid keel guard. Very impressive bit of kit.
The beam is circa 2.9m whereas the 785 is 2.5.
Weight is approx 2100kg with the 785 about 17-1800kg

Beautiful Boat! The Ribeye tubes look really smart, smoother curves around the bow compared to geminis own tubes with their thrupenny bit profile around the bow!

The boat is manufactured for Ribeye in SA and then shipped to UK for their final fit out of electronics, seating, sonsul, and engine. After this perhaps I need them to explain their relationship with Gemini. Hope that helps
Looks Great but wouldn't it be easier and greener to produce it all in house in the UK like Ribcraft Osprey etc

Cheers for the comments, I have some old customers coming down today to have a run out and see what is new - so far the changes are superb, but easy for me to say hence the run out

Boat looks great. How do you think it will compare speed and economy wise compared with the 785?
