Here are a couple of the prices taken from the site (all come with steering,console etc either Hypalon or Polyurethane tubes, I guess you pick your preference).

5.5m Wide Bodied Rib 4299
5.5m Commercial Rib 4899
6.2m Wide Bodied Rib 4899
6.2m Commercial Rib 5999
7.3m Wide Bodied Rib 6799
7.3m Commercial Rib 7599

All prices exc VAT

If this is a true, current price then these are cheap, not sure of upgrades etc (dual cruise consoles, hydraulic steering, tube top patches etc etc etc).

Website is a bit vague as to what you get and no pics or info on models, optional extras etc.

They are relatlively cheap, however that's a bare boat, no console, fuel tank, steering, trailer, electronics or engine. It all adds up. Compared to Ribcraft...

4.2m, 4,343
4.8m, 5,126
5.3m, 6,517
5.8m, 7,483
6.4m, 8,691
6.8m, 10,400
7.8m, 12,100
9.0m, 18,995
10.5m, 24,995
12.0m, 29,995

All excluding VAT.

I wouldnt get too exited chaps .. I've had three of em .. and I wont be having a fourth. Never had any, that held air in the toobs from new, any longer than a week and the last one was a disaster, covered elsewhere in this forum. Northcrafts support is also legendary ..... in its absence .... although some have had better experience of them than I. Shame too .. cos which ever hulls they copied to make the boats up, ride pretty well

I've read one of your threads on the transom. Looked like a bad experience although I did like the look of DHD's before he sold it.

Hi
I just bought a Northcraft 2008 widebody 6.3 two months ago.
I just had time to test it for 15 minutes because I haven't all the papers in order yet.
It seems to be a good boat for it's price! Transom looks good too.
I had J. Hewitt on the phone last week because I need a certificate of conformity and the information about the CE approval in order to use my boat in Belgium.. Crazy customs here !
I hope to have all the papers that I need, I sent a letter to them too and I'm waiting for an answer now..

The 6.3 was the best of the ones I had does it have a planing pad on the bottom ? ..
