Eco XR24?

Martin,

We'd be very pleased to build an Eco XR24 to your spec. 7.2m hull with proven track-record in heavy conditions. Our new lightweight construction will make it fuel efficient and we can fit it with outboard or diesel inboard. The deck isn't as beamy as many RIBs, but the extra length would make up and there's a lot of storage space. We're just laying up a demo boat at the moment.

Why not consider a british Rib, with dealer back up on both Guernsey and Jersey.
May I recommend a Redbay. Built in N Ireland and distributed by myself at MRL in Southampton through my dealer network.
I can offer either our Stormforce 6.1m, 6.5m or 7.4m.
You have the choice of inboard or outboard.
For safety why not go for something like a 6.5m with a pair of 90hp engines or a 7.4m with a pair of 115hp engines.
Look at the range on either www.mrl-uk.com or www.redbayboats.com
We have demonstration models that you can try.
If you are looking for bigger I have a new Stormforce 8.4 S in stock with a Suzuki 300hp engine fitted, zero hours.
Regards
Ed

I do like the look of that hull...

Thanks lads, but I think Malteaser has something a little, um, newer (and ex-VAT) in mind - the willkcraft is 10 years old, albeit with younger injuns etc.

No, I'll leave the sales work to the excellent EdPed, after all, he's "paid up" in every sense, but I won't leave without suggesting something like the 7.4m Redbay Survey RIB. It has a big forward deck for work/diving or with bolt on pods, this space could be used for 8 passengers, ono.

I agree that 6.5m is the minimum sensible size, but I would say that wouldn't I.

If weed growth and drying moorings weren't a problem for me, I'd seriously consider an inboard if I was upgrading and going 7m or over. Fuel is only ever going to get more expensive, and I wouldn't fancy carting 100's of litres of petrol from Blanchards every time I wanted to fill up. The alternative, otherwise, is that every time you travel somewhere you will have to make sure your destination has a fuel berth and that it's open.

We have not found petrol to be too much of a millstone, the only time it was an issue was just before the last UK trip - went to St Peter Port a couple of days before to fill up + cans for the return.

Diesel is a nice to have, but deck space is a higher priority as is a good cruising speed.
