The SR4.7 is economical to run with its 50hp, 4-stroke motor, easy to launch & recover (even over sand), so a good boat to take away behind the camper van without any real slipway concerns. A comfy 2-seater RIB with a nice deep-v hull if things chop up a bit.
The R340 RIB is handy for buzzing about on the river and cheap to keep in the boatyard, so is always on hand if we fancy a run to the pub or a spin upriver on spring tides. The River Cleddau is really well suited to small RIBs, so this one gets quite a lot of use.
Then there's the SIBs........
