I think I read something in the last issue of RIB Int that somone has just started producing the XR24 again I think it was ECO boats or something like that.

Would like to find a new one though.

The xr24 is now being made new in various types.
I have send them a mail today.

That's why I originally started this thread. I've had some involvement with the development of the new boat, and just wanted to see what opinion was of the original.

I got talking to the chap who wanted to revive the design, and was originally interested in buying one to use as a charter boat. We discussed a number of features that I felt were important in a RIB, primarily to be used as a charter RIB. They ended up developing some of these, which I gave feedback on. The most notable being the jockey seat which you can store a life raft under.

Not really much involvement, but an interesting project never the less.

So, who owns the design now? Damian Bloor was the guy whom developed the Vector boats from which the XR 24 evolved.
