Pacific 22 Mkll

navy has a Mkll Pac 22,which is supposed to be better in rougher seas with i think an uprated HP. Anyone got any ideas what they have done? And can a Mkl be upgraded(not so much on HP as that wouldnt be a problem)?as we are thinking of getting a Mkl.

I think that the Mk11 (if the current "new" Pacifics that the RN use are Mk11s) has a waterjet and 230hp Yanmar - might be a bit difficult to upgrade to!

Pacific 22 RIBs

As far as i am aware the new MkII's have a completely new hull design as well as the waterjet and new inboards although i am not sure if these are actually larger than the standard MKI engine as the service speed is still only 22kts.

Also, the MKII's have self righting capability, a single point lifting system and more storage. Correct me if im wrong but i think they may be longer too!

Give a standard MKIa go as upgrading to a MKII is impossible. I think youll be extremely impressed with its seakeeping - they havent got such a reputation for nothing!

Also, no ballast tanks. The RNLI only had them installed to counteract a stern heavy design i believe.

Hope this helps although i am not sure if it is all 100% factual - only basing it on what i have been told.

Have fun

SEB, Thanks for the info. Know the Pac 22 very well,spent alot of time maintaing them and driving whilst in forces ,am awaiting on funding at the moment.Get the funds and we will go for a Mkl as you rightly say they are hard to beat if your not worried to much about speed.
