Hope not, the RN have been using them for both routine and emergency stuff on board there ships for 25 years. The specification didn't change much during that time so presumably the RN felt Halmatic got it right the first time.
For the private user if your happy with a 25 knot cruising speed then a P22 will get you into a diesel engined rib for £10-12k depending on condition and that has to be tempting.
As for the Prosport well it might be a nice cruising boat. Remember Alan Priddy crossed the Atlantic with a 7m rib and 165 hp, without a good sea trial your never going to know what she is like.
