Plancraft

Hi, new to RIBs and looking to acquire RIB for next year. Have looked at Humber, Ribeye and Coastline. Any opinions on Plancraft? Seem to offer a good range and flexible on power sources. Thanks in anticipation.

Have a look at XS Ribs. Superb boats, dry and great sea keeping.

Back in the day when we all had unreliable 14ft speedboats, Plancraft were right up there just behind Fletcher and Shakespear.

A pal had a Plancraft Stingray which he named 'Troy Tempest'. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stingray_(TV_series)

Had some scary moments with it and a parascending chute which was nicked from a hotel in Spain.
