Mine's an older style - back of the tubes in the water which slows her down a bit, compared with the newer, higher hulls. After having driven many RIB designs, I would have to say that Picton is probably one of the most stable, comfortable and driest and are quite good looking to boot. Has lasted well and I would say built very strongly. Following a pretty hard charter boat life for the past 5 years (800 total hours), there are no stress cracks anywhere in the hull. Put a "trunk" in the other day and had to hack my way through a tough 3" thick transom.
All in all, not the best but certainly not the worst and good value for money with, as you say, a good resale value.
